Lord God, we ask today for Libyan believers to find spouses who are believers and for Christ-centered marriages to be formed within your church. We ask for men who will be faithful husbands loving their wives just as Christ loves the church. We also ask for women who will joyfully submit to their husbands as a picture of the way the church submits to the lordship of Christ.
Father, we thank you for Jan, a new believer, who is overcoming fear and sharing your Word with a friend! Thank you for the increasing boldness in your church in Libya. We ask that her friend would continue to want to study the Word with her and that she would make a decision to follow you as well!
Forgiveness is very counter-cultural in Libya. If someone wrongs you, it is a normal response to cut that person off and not speak again.
Father, we pray for believers in Libya to love one another and to forgive one another when they hurt each other. We pray for the church in Libya to be a unified body who model the love of Christ to each other and choose forgiveness and love rather than bitterness and hatred.
