Mon 17 July: Libya
We as intercessors for North Africa declare that although the enemy try to blind the people and shut the gates of Jericho like in the time of the spies (Jos. 2:7), the walls will fall and the people set free to worship Father in spirit and truth.
“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.” Luke 14:23
Thank you Lord Jesus for inviting the Libyan people to your banquet. We cancel and nullify possible excuses and obstacles preventing them from coming to your feast.
Libya’s neighbors Algeria, Egypt and Tunisia agreed on 6 June in the ‘Algiers declaration’ to push for political dialogue and end the crisis in the North African country and rejected foreign interference or any military solution.
Lord Jesus, you are the Wonderful Counsellor, the Mighty God and the Prince of Peace. We pray that you will increase your government and peace in Libya. (Is 9:6)
Lord Jesus, we pray that multitudes in this country will hear your voice, turn from the religious and wicked ways to follow the Good Shepherd.
A prayer for Libyan Christians
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
From the LORD comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
“One day Jesus said to his disciples,: Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” Luke 8:22
Lord Jesus, we know you went to a Gentile area across the Sea of Galilee, just to bring freedom to ONE demon-possessed man. We thank you for this amazing mercy, love and compassion. We ask that you will visit Libya and bring freedom to large numbers of imprisoned souls.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongue as the Spirit enabled them.” Acts 2:1-4
Holy Spirit, come, fill and empower your Libyan children today, to speak your message of hope and truth boldly.
Father, may your Glory rise, your Kingdom come and your will be done in Libya. Matthew 6:10
The Ascension of Jesus
When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God. Luke 24:50-53
Lord, as we celebrate Ascension Day on the 25th, we pray that the Libyan brothers and sisters will continually praise and worship you wherever they are, day and night.
We proclaim that Libyans who were not told about Jesus will see and understand the gospel of salvation through the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:21
