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.
“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.
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Let it be true in the Libyan body of believers that they would be a people who are encouraging and building each other up continually. We pray for the words that come forth out of their mouths to be life-giving and would serve to stir one another up to love more and be obedient to your commands.
As Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

“But when Jesus heard it he said, ‘This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.'” (John 11:4)
We thank you Father God that you are able to use pain, sickness and even death to bring you and your Son glory. We pray now for those who are sick in Libya to encounter your presence and experience your glory surrounding them. Thank you Jesus that you conquered death, and we pray for these ones to know you as the Resurrection and Life!
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died , and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:2-3) Help us Father and our brothers and sisters in Libya as well set our minds on things that are above remembering that we belong to you. Our lives are not our own but we are redeemed people. Let us keep our thoughts and our minds centered upon your Word.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor…” (Isaiah 61:1a)
Lord God, we bring before you those in Libya who are poor both physically and spiritually and ask for them to receive the good news of salvation through Jesus! Thank you for your love and compassion for the poor. Give us your heart for them and let us not hold back from proclaiming the hope of the gospel to them!
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
Father, we lift up believers in Libya today who are in need of a job and ask that they would see your miraculous and faithful provision in their lives. We pray that they would learn to trust you for all of their needs and that they would seek your kingdom first!
“I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalm 27:13-14) In a season that feels like a constant game of waiting and so much uncertainty about what the future holds, Lord we pray for our hearts and the hearts of Libyan believers to wait for you with expectation and steadfastness knowing you are good and your plans are good.
