Thank you Lord for a seeker, Tabitha, who is hungry to read the Word and who is discovering who you are Jesus that you are the Son of God! Thank you for the steps of faith she is taking, and we pray that she would come to full surrender!
One of the measures taken in the goal to stop the spread of coronavirus is that all mosques are closed for prayers. In the absence of prayers at mosques, we pray Father that there would a filling in of this gap with the prayers of your saints and that your Spirit would be poured out in abundant measure!
“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:14)
Thank you Jesus for the perfect example you gave us in the way you loved people. Help those in your church in Libya love and serve one another just as you have loved them.
Thank you for each believer in Libya and that you empower each one of them with your Holy Spirit. Remind them today Holy Spirit of the words Jesus spoke and we pray that as they have freely received, they would freely give!
Though only 3 confirmed cases of the coronavirus have been reported in Libya, counter-measures were put in place earlier this week including declaring a state of emergency and closing all land/air outlets into the country.
Father, we ask that in the midst of this world crisis, Libyans would encounter the light and hope of Christ Jesus. We thank you God for using this crisis to awaken people from their sleep and call them to return to you!
“From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth–he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.” (Psalm 33:13-15)
In the midst of a time of much uncertainty and fear, we thank you Lord that you are sovereign over all that is happening in our world. You remain seated upon your throne and you are in control. During this time, we pray for Libyans to turn to you and receive peace through your Son.
Today, we cry out for the Libyans living in the less-populated, desert regions of the south and ask for you to open up doors for workers to go into the towns of Sabha, Ghat, Murzuq and Al Jawf. We pray for there to be a presence of believers in each of these towns so that the lost living in these places have opportunities to hear the good news!
Thank you Father for a Libyan woman who recently asked for a copy of the Word. We ask that as she reads, she would be given a spirit of understanding and the veil would be lifted from her eyes to see Jesus as the Messiah.
In Acts 16, we read the story of the Philippian jailer who after hearing the Word, “he was baptized at once, he and all his family.” (Acts 16:33) We boldly ask for entire households to come to faith in Libya, Lord. Let us begin to see families believing and being baptized together!
Thank you Lord for the women we know who are coming to faith, but we want to believe and ask for Libyan men as well! Raise up mighty men who will be saved and lead their households to faith!
