“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!

Misrata, the third largest populated city in Libya, is a very strategically located place in the middle of the country linking the east and west. It is a major port city with about 60% of imports and exports in the country going through it.
Lord Jesus, we ask for a great outpouring of your Spirit over the city of Misrata. Let its people who carry such a strong identity as being Misuratans shift to carrying an identity as passionate, obedient followers of Jesus!

As Paul admonished Timothy to guard the good deposit entrusted to him through the Holy Spirit which dwells within us (2 Timothy 1:14), we ask for your church in Libya to remember Jesus and the Gospel they have received! Empower each believer by your Spirit and we pray that you would remind them of the faith, love and hope they have in Christ Jesus.

While today is a day full of joy and celebration for you, today is a normal Wednesday in Libya and the majority of Libyans are not even aware that today is Christmas. Take a moment now to pray for the thousands of lost sheep in Libya to be found. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost! He came for every people group and tribe including all those in Libya.
We ask that this normal Wednesday in the lives of many Libyans to be turned into an extraordinary day of being found by the One who loves them and laid down his life for them.

Lord God, we thank you for the small gathering of believers that exist now in Libya, and we ask for growth in this body! We pray for vision to be released over leaders to desire to multiply themselves so that many more Libyans can be reached. We ask for this next year 2020 to be a year of multiplication and growth in your Libyan church!

“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.

Located just about 1.5 hours drive east from the capital, the town of Khoms is well known for the magnificent ancient Roman ruins of Leptis Magna which are located just two miles east of the city. A couple of the major economic trades in the city are the harvesting of olive oil and dates. Father, we ask today for the people of Khoms to become like olive trees flourishing in the house of God and for their trust to be in your unfailing love (Psalm 52:8).

“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Messiah, the LORD.'” (Luke 2:10-11)
LORD God, we ask for a spirit of revelation to fall upon the hearts and minds of Libyans today that Jesus is Messiah and LORD! We ask that the lie that so many of them believe that he is merely a prophet be broken and let them experience the joy of His coming!

This past week, the airport in the capital reopened after a three month closure due to the repeated airstrikes by General Haftar’s military forces. The fighting does continue to rage though in the outer edges of the city as Haftar’s forces continue trying to take control of the capital. It is good news for the airport to reopen but continue to ask for an end to the fighting and protection of the innocent.
Father God, we ask for you to make this war in Libya cease and for your purposes to be accomplished and your kingdom to advance!

God, let Your Church in Libya gather from house to house, declaring Your praises, listening for Your Word, and serving the widow and the orphan. We pray for thriving, healthy, reproducing house churches that would bless Libya and the nations of the earth!

There is a deep longing inside the hearts of Libyans for peace in their country, but few of them have much hope that peace will come anytime soon. Father, we lift up Libyans today who are longing for peace and stability and ask that they would encounter Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Let them “have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” as they come to the understanding they have been justified through faith in Him! (Romans 5:1)

A unique and beautiful city in eastern Libya, Derna has a history of paganism, Christianity, and both moderate and extreme Islam.
Be lifted up, ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in (Ps. 24:9)! We lift up the people of Derna to You, Father, and ask for a radical encounter with Jesus, that entire households would declare allegiance to You. We also pray for its peace, that there would be an end to destruction and suffering. Let Your will be done, O Lord.

God, we thank You for those who make disciples who make disciples in Libya. We are amazed at Your work in building Your Church and preparing Your bride. Can anyone trace out paths for Muslims to become Jesus followers like You? You are truly awesome in all Your works, Lord. Nothing is impossible for You!

It’s a common misconception among Libyans that celebrating Christmas is associated with celebrating the new year. Many of them know about Christmas trees, but they don’t know the story of Christmas. As believers in the country have many more opportunities to share the Christmas story this month, pray for open and soft hearts to hear the message and desire to know more!

Currently, there are several believers who are single and desiring to marry, but they do not know someone who shares their faith. It is difficult as some of them face pressures from family members to marry an unbeliever and their families don’t know about their faith.
Lord God, we ask today with single Libyan believers for you to give them spouses who share their faith in you. We pray for more marriages in Libya where both husband and wife believe together!
