Thank you Lord for the Libyan believers who are reaching out and sharing with their family members! We ask for the salvation of these spouses, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers! Give them dreams and encounters with your Spirit to accompany the message of truth they are hearing from the mouths of your followers.
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” (James 5:16a)
Father, we pray as believers meet together that they would be prompted by the Spirit to humble themselves and confess their sins to one another. As they pray for each other, let your healing power bring restoration and healing to the brokenness in their lives.
Today, February 17, 2020, marks 9 years since the beginning of the civil war that led to the overthrow of Libya’s long-time dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. It is a public holiday in the country, and flags can be seen flying everywhere. Many are celebrating despite the fact the country is still in the midst of political chaos and fighting.
Father, today we ask for a spiritual revolution in the country of Libya. Let a spirit of repentance wash over this blood-stained land and hearts be cleansed from evil and sin through the blood of Christ.
As Psalm 34:4-5 declares, ” I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.”
Thank you for this truth Lord that for those who look to you in times of trouble, they will not be ashamed but rather their faces will be radiant. We pray for Libyan believers to look to you and seek you in the midst of their challenges. May their faces be radiant with the glory of the LORD.
Father, we lift up the body of believers living in the eastern city of Benghazi. We ask for your protection and covering around them. Let them not be afraid but help them to put their trust in you always.
In Matthew 20:29-34, we read the story of two blind men who cried out to Jesus when they heard he was passing by, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” Even when others told them to be quiet, they cried out even more!
Lord Jesus, we ask for Libyans today who are blind spiritually or physically to cry out to you asking for mercy. Thank you that you are merciful and you respond to those who cry out to you!
