Prayer IS important ! The example for us is set!  Here's some information on that:

- There are 650 prayers listed in the Bible. (Here is the list and where they can be found.)
- There are approximately 450 recorded answers to prayer in the Bible.
- The first time prayer is mentioned in the Bible is Genesis 4:26 (earlier dialogues where initiated directly by God, e.g., Genesis 3:8-13, Genesis 4:9).
- The Bible records Jesus praying 25 different times during his earthly ministry.
- In the Bible, Paul mentions prayer (prayers, prayer reports, prayer requests, exhortations to pray), 41 times.

As you pray for the issues below and as you praise God, take a moment to ponder how important prayer really is.

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise!

- Each year, millions of Muslims worldwide observe Ramadan, a month of daytime fasting. This year, Ramadan falls between May 27th-June 25th. At the same time, millions of Christians pray for Muslims during this month. Would you join us in praying for Francophone Muslims to come to know Jesus as Lord. BLF has developed an interactive PDF prayer calendar to us pray more specifically. The PDF links to other resources with more information on the countries and people groups listed.

Please share this calendar with your church, prayer group, Sunday School class -- wherever believers gather to pray.

- Continue to pray for the leaders and people of the Francophone world. Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthélemy and Saint Martin are located in the Caribbean. Please pray for the newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron (these islands are considered part of "overseas France") and for the local government leadership provided by Presidents of the Regional Councils: Ary Chalus; Alfred Marie-Jeanne; Bruno Magras and Aline Hanson. Most people call themselves Christians but real followers of Jesus are in the minority. Please pray for unity within the Church. Pray leaders to have better access to training.
