Egyptians in Libya

There are an estimated 750,000 Egyptians living in Libya today. Many of them have left their country to find work in Libya. Many of them have jobs in the service or food industry. There is a higher percentage of Egyptian believers than Libyan believers. Let us ask today for the Lord to raise up and call forth Egyptian believers to reach their Libyan neighbors.  

Father God, we cry out for the Egyptian church to be compelled by your love to proclaim the message of hope and salvation to their lost neighbors. Bring down the walls of fear and intimidation that would stop them from going.

Hope while Grieving

We praise you Jesus for Tabitha’s desire to truly understand and know your Word. Thank you that she is calling Jesus the Son of God!

Leaven on the Rise

And again [Jesus] said, ‘To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.’ (Luke 13:20-21).

Father, we praise You that the leaven of Your Kingdom is gradually permeating the spiritual atmosphere of Libya through believers’ lives, access to the Bible, media, and other profound encounters with You. Come, King Jesus, come!

In His Hands

Sovereign Lord, we thank you that you are in control of Libya and that your authority outweighs every earthly kingdom. There is none more powerful than you! As control over cities in LIbya are exchanged between different powers, we rest in the truth that you are sovereign over them all.

Just a Touch

She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment (Mark 5:27). This desperate woman who had not been healed in 12 years “heard the reports about Jesus” and was compelled to find him.

Lord, may many in Libya hear the reports of you and draw near. May you reward their humble faith with a revelation of your glory and grace.

Cyrenaican Arabs in Libya

The Cyrenaican Arabs represent about a quarter of the population in Libya, and they live in the eastern portion of the country including the major cities of Benghazi and Derna. The name “Cyrenaican” is derived from the historical city of Cyrene from which this region has evolved through the centuries. There are very few workers in this region of the country.

Father, we pray for the doors to be opened to the Cyrenaican region of Libya for more workers to be able to go and make disciples among them.  We also ask for more intercessors to be raised up who will pray for this region and the people living there.

Engaging the Unreached

Our Lord, we cry out to you in behalf of the dozens and dozens of ethnic groups in and near Libya that no Christian has persistently engaged through the centuries. Please, God, let us in this generation bring these dear people into your Kingdom.

Summer Begins

Many school-age children attending public schools in Libya finished taking their exams last week. After a long break for Ramadan, they went back last week for exams and now school is officially out for the summer. Many children living along the coastline will spend days at the beach with their families while most summer days will be spent playing outside in their neighborhood with friends.

Father, we thank you for the children living in Libya who represent the future of this country. Let them not be hindered from hearing the good news of salvation and let them grow into lovers of Jesus and your Word.

Daily Prayers

Authority of Word

Jesus said, “If anyone’s will is to do God’s will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority” (John 7:17).

Father, may Your Word be read and loved in Libya, as those who are genuinely seeking Your will behold grace and truth in its pages.

Blessed are You

In Matthew 16 Jesus said Peter was blessed and that his understanding of Jesus being the Messiah came from the Father in Heaven.

Father, we now pray you will bless multitudes in Libya, revealing Jesus to them.

Algerians in Libya

There is an estimated population of about 279,000 Berbers originally from neighboring country Algeria living in Libya. In their early history, Berbers were mostly Christians before Arab invasions led to “Arabization” forcing them to speak the Arabic language and follow the religion of Islam. Today, all of these Berber tribes are Muslim but there is a growing number of believers among them!

 Lord, we praise you for the Berber Christians in Libya and ask for you to strengthen and encourage them today. Let your light shine through them and may more of these precious ones come to faith in Jesus! Raise up and send out more believers who feel a calling to reach these tribes with the Good News of salvation!

Good Works

Lord, we ask that you would make all grace abound to believers in Libya today, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, they may abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8) May these good works be seen by believers’ family and friends and would they be drawn to Jesus through this testimony.

Prayer for the Elderly

At Jesus’ birth there was a woman named Anna who was at least 84 years old who was waiting for God’s redemption (Luke 2:36-38).

Father, woo the hearts of elderly women and their families in Libya who are longing for Your salvation. Give them to Jesus.

Progress towards Elections

Plans for elections being held in December 2018 are moving forward and many of the political entities are desiring unity and peace in their country. There are still groups though who are fighting against these changes using violence and terror to make their statements.

We pray for your kingdom to come and your will to be done in the political situation of Libya. Raise up the peacemakers and tear down the strongholds of violence and pride in the groups seeking power.

Distrust Hinders Movements

In order for church multiplication movements to progress, new believers must be easily and quickly welcomed into the Body of Christ.

Let us pray today against the threat of distrust and suspicion that can prevent God’s people from growing in number, maturity, and impact.
