“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” (Revelation 22:12-13)

Lord Jesus, these words you spoke are true and trustworthy. Let the eyes and ears of Libyans be opened to receive this truth and the mercy you offer before the day of judgment.

Libyan society is largely organized around tribal identities. For the next several Sundays, we’ll highlight one tribe to pray for specifically.

Today, we lift up the Warfalla, who represent the biggest and most influential tribe in Libya, composed of over one million people (out of a population of six to eight million). The Warfalla are spread all over Libya but their primary leadership comes from Bani Walid, in Tripolitania.

Jesus, we pray today for the Warfalla, that they would repent and turn to you, that they would seek after and find you. Thank you for a few believers from this tribe, especially those who are doing great works to help the poor and needy. Please add to their number. Thank you for the history of the Warfalla being peacemakers and mediators. Bless them Jesus and may many kingdom communities be birthed among them.
Lord Jesus, thank you so much that Libyan believers are carrying the banner of reaching their own people! They are full of vision for their countrymen to have their eyes opened to the truth and to see their nation transformed. Holy Spirit, we praise you and ask you to continue to fulfill your dreams and promises through our Libyan brothers and sisters.

As a Libyan believer was baptized recently, the words of Romans 6:4 felt very significant as everyone present reflected on the picture of our sins being buried through his death and the new life we’re given in Christ through His resurrection. Father, we praise you for this beautiful picture we see through the act of water baptism, and we pray for many more in Libya to repent and be baptized!!

Power cuts in Tripoli this year have been the worst since the Libyan crisis began. Recently, people have been counting hours of power ON versus power OFF, and they’ve been buying and preparing just enough food for one meal because refrigerators are unreliable. Usually when the weather cools down, citizens expect power availability to go up, but this year the cuts have still been bad. Jesus, we pray for relief and good solutions to this crisis. Give believers opportunities to learn the secret of being content in all circumstances. Thank you for meeting the needs of your people.

Father, we pray today for those in Libya who are powerful voices and influences in the media world. We ask for your hand to be upon them and for you to guide them into all truth. Let their voices become ones proclaiming a different way and encouraging people to ask questions rather than merely accepting everything they have grown up hearing.

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

Father, Son, and Spirit, you are God and we thank you that you existed before the world began. We ask for revelation to be poured out over Libyans to discover all three persons of the Trinity and to believe in the Father, Son and Spirit.
