The Night of Power

Perhaps you do not know that tonight (May 19 this year) is regarded by Muslims around the world as one of the most highly spiritual times of the year. It is called “The Night of Power” and it is believed that Allah hears prayers, forgives sin, and is more merciful than at any other time of the year. Surah 97:3 states that “The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.” The spiritual benefits that flow from Allah on this special night exceed 83.3 yrs. of normal worship!

Let us be mindful of this today as our Muslim friends and neighbors will be earnestly engaged in prayers for Allah’s mercy and forgiveness. Let us also be in prayer that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to Jesus and to find in him the forgiveness and salvation for which their longing souls seek.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

    Interesting. I would never have known about this if not for your blog.
    So….with regard to your blogs: i was thinking that they all belong in a book edition . A collection of sorts. one for each day. A reference point to pick up and point the day’s thoughts a certain way.
    Dave, just a thought!

    1. Good idea. Actually, the book I’m writing now is a collection of certain of my blogs having to do with suffering and affliction. It is called, The Goodness of Affliction”

        Oh good. Your writing on affliction has touched me deeply. You have earned the right to speak. What you offer is something substantive . As I read and listen i try to get my head around what you say about what God says . I especially appreciated you talk with Seth on pain and illness. Again – you have certainly earned the right to speak
