Lord Jesus, we invite all Tunisians to pass through the gates as we prepare and build the highway for them. May our prayers remove all the stones and obstacles in the way. Together as intercessors, we raise your banner for the whole nation. (Is 62:10)
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the (Algerians). For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” —Romans 1:16-17
Heavenly Father give Your children in Algeria the boldness and power to be unashamedly bold in their faith of You.
“We Want Change”
“Freedom of choice” remain a controversial subject in Morocco, especially regarding issues of religion and non-traditional lifestyles.
An anonymous non-partisan group called “Bghina Taghyir (We Want Change)” released some videos online during the weeks leading up to the elections that took place on October 7th. This campaign has not gained much ground, and seemed to have garnered as much criticism as support, but the sentiment behind them is refreshingly bold.
A few of the videos document a social experiment: Adjacent doorways of different colours were installed by this group in various public spaces, allowing people to pass through freely, through whichever doorway they choose. The text interspersed in the video say that this social experiment prove that “a free Moroccan will pass through whichever way he wants…”
In another video, a local rapper says: “I want to live the way I want to… if I’m a little different, don’t panic.”
Yet another clip shows a woman, after being harassed on the bus by a bearded fundamentalist, telling a younger woman at the bus stop to vote so that she could live her life and be free.
Let’s press in again and to ask the Lord to deliver Morocco from:
- Fear of change
- Idolatry of traditions
- Fear of difference (in the sense of having a diversity of lifestyles and opinions)
- Spiritual blindness and deafness
Lord, redeem this slogan: “We Want Change.” Call out a generation who is burning with a desire for inner transformation so they can be restored to You as sons and daughters.
I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. —Jeremiah 24:7
Lord Jesus, open the ears of the Libyans to hear this amazing invitation, we pray.
Cancer, kidney failures, liver diseases and serious back problems are among the most common health issues Egyptians have learned to live with as a norm. In Egypt health care is very inadequate whether in availability or quality. But Jesus paid for our nation’s diseases by HIS sufferings. The Lord’s name (nature) is Jehovah Rapha. In the coming 3 months there will be 3 healing schools in Egypt led by 3 different groups.
Father we ask YOUR fear and YOUR supernatural wisdom to fill Egypt’s health care professionals
Holy Spirit call out the church after the truth about YOUR desire, Power and Authority to heal the sick that YOU’VE given her. Release YOUR gifts of healings. Release YOUR love and compassion
Come with healing Breakthroughs in Jesus mighty name both natural and supernatural. Amen.
Father God, prepare the soil and hearts in Tunisia, so that the seeds of your Word sown over the centuries will grow and produce a hundred fold crop. Water the seeds with your Living Water and shine your face over the harvest, in Jesus name. (Mark 4:20)
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. —Isaiah 44:3
Father we ask you pour out Your Spirit on Algeria and may their descendants be blessed.
Created for more
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I now that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand - when I awake, I am still with you." —Psalm 139: 13-18
May these beautiful and powerful verses lead us in praying for many Mauritanians to come to know to the heart of our Creator God towards them.
Pray for Mauritanians, young and old, men and women, to:
- Experience a stirring in their inner being; a hunger to commune with the One who made them
- Become seekers of purpose and truth in life
- Wake up from the slumber of religion and traditions
- Rise up in praise, with minds and hearts filled to overflowing with precious thoughts of God
Thank you Lord that You have set eternity in the hearts of people. Thank you Lord that you never cease to reach out to redeem and restore. We are crying out for a mighty move of redemption and restoration over Mauritania!
A recent report indicates that Food Insecurity (scarcity of food) affects up to 983,000 people in Mauritania. Some are in a stressed situation, others are in crisis.
There are governmental and humanitarian efforts in place to help. Let us also cry out for God to intervene by His great power and mercy. May many who are currently hungry and ill experience the compassion, healing, and miraculous provision of their Creator God.
Here are the names of six provinces in Mauritania where between 13.9% to 19.5% percent of the population are affect by the Food Insecurity crisis.
- Hodh Elchargui
- Hodh Elgharbi
Let us pray for each of these provinces, asking God to intervene mightily for those who are hungry, and bless richly those who are seeking to grow food or raise cattle.
Let us declare that God is the One who fed the Israelites in the wilderness, the One who turned water into wine, who fed thousands with 5 loaves and 2 fish, and the One who is the Bread of Life!

Lifting up Moroccan Jews on Yom Kippur
Before 1948, around 265,000 Jews lived in Morocco and were Moroccan by nationality and culture. Since the wave of emigration to Israel that started in the 1950s, only 2500 or so Jews remain in Morocco today. Israel is the nation with the highest population of Moroccan Jews today (numbering 1,000,000), followed by France and Canada.
Today is Yom Kippur. Jews spend the day fasting and praying for forgiveness from God.
On this day, let us turn to Isaiah 53.
Let us intercede through this scripture over all Jews of Moroccan background within and outside of Morocco.
Let us adore Jesus as we read, and connect with His heart of affection towards Moroccan Jews.
May He receive the glory and reward of His suffering. May God’s word come in power to transform the lives of Moroccan Jews in Israel, Morocco, and around the world.
Isaiah 53 Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.
