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!
Father, we’re asking that in Libya today there would be men who have “Damascus road” encounters with you! After Ananias laid his hands upon Saul, “immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight.” (Acts 9:18) Lord, let the scales fall from their eyes and help them to see you clearly!
“The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” (Matthew 13:45-46)
We pray for many more Libyans to discover the kingdom of heaven and be willing to sell everything in order to obtain it! Let them realize the great value of your kingdom.
“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.
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!
Jesus told a parable in Luke 18 about a persistent widow who kept coming to a judge asking for justice against her adversary and the judge gave her justice only because of her continual coming. Jesus admonishes us to keep praying and not lose heart asking them, “will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them?” (Luke 18:7)
We will keep coming to you Lord asking for your justice and your mercy to be shown to the people of Libya!
“Shall I bring to the point of birth and not cause to bring forth?” says the LORD; “shall I, who cause to bring forth, shut the womb?” says your God. (Isaiah 66:9)
Thank you LORD that what you have begun in Libya you will bring to completion. We declare there is a new birth and awakening happening in this country!
In John 11:25, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
Jesus, we are asking today for Libyans to know you as the resurrection and the life!
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘ Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!'” (Revelation 7:9-10)
Thank you Heavenly Father for your desire for every nation and every tribe to be represented before your throne on that glorious day. We pray today for every people group in Libya to bow before the Lamb acknowledging Jesus as their Lord and Savior!
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.” (1 John 3:16)
Thank you Father God for showing us your love for us by sending your Son. Thank you that we know what love is because of what Jesus did for us on the cross. We ask for Libyans to know what love is this Christmas as they come to know how Jesus sacrificed his life for them.
