Longing for Transformation
The Hajj is all about the gathering together of the larger Muslim community. Our annual vision is to see 144 groups of prayer warriors commit to gather in communal prayer throughout the week of the Hajj. As Muslims around the world – including many Moroccans – descend on Mecca for their annual pilgrimage, we join together to battle in community on their behalf asking that these beloved people encounter Jesus.
Join us in 2023.
In 2022, 103 out of 144 groups committed to pray during the Hajj in 2022. We reached 71.5% of the goal in year 1! Praise the Lord!
566 Estimated Intercessors
Our group leaders estimated approximately 566 intercessors committed to pray during the 2022 Hajj Pilgrimage!
6,180 Minutes of Prayer
Approximately 6,180 minutes of prayer were lifted up to the throne of heaven. We are convinced that spiritual atmospheres have been shifted!
What is the Hajj?
The Hajj – Arabic for “pilgrimage” – is one of the five pillars (requirements) of Islam and is the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Every adult Muslim must make this journey at least once in their lifetime if physically and financially able.
The Hajj is a 5-day pilgrimage where Muslims from around the world descend on Mecca, Saudi Arabia to perform a series of rituals. Upwards of 2 million Muslims flock to Mecca during the time of the Hajj as a symbol of unity within the Muslim faith.
As a part of the Hajj, Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) takes place to commemorate when Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son on the altar before God stepped in to provide a substitute. Though Muslims believe that the son was Ishmael, it is a powerful reminder of the promise Sacrifice that did come through Christ.
The Hajj is a serious, often once-in-a-lifetime experience for most Muslims. As they gather together with other Muslims around the world, it is a time of longing to see a unified, holy and pious community.
This time of seeking makes it a strategic time for us to pray for them as they pursue the favor of Allah (God) in hope of receiving his mercy and forgiveness by going on this pilgrimage.
