And in the place where it is said to them, “You are not My people,” It will be said to them, “You are the sons of the living God.” (Hosea 1:10) Lord, we pray for many more sons and daughters of the living God in Libya.
Father, we praise you for all your good plans and promises for your sheep in Libya. Only You can make them lie down in green pastures even in the face of trouble and turmoil. You are the Good Shepherd who cares for the sheep, search for the lost ones and binds up those who are injured.
And in the place where it is said to them, “You are not My people,” It will be said to them, “You are the sons of the living God.” Hosea 1:10 Lord, we pray for many more sons and daughters of the living God in Libya.
“Many nations will be joined with the LORD in that day and will become my people” Zechariah 2:11 Father, it is our desire to see all the people groups in Libya part of the great multitude worshiping.
‘Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed— and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors— and they have no comforter’ Ecclesiastes 4:1 Father of all comfort, the people of Libya are oppressed and imprisoned by Islam, violence and corruption. Without you there is no hope or way out. Please reach down from heaven and scatter the enemy, in Jesus name.
Migrant and refugee situation
Having more than 700,000 migrants on its territory, Libya has recently refused to take in a group of 177 migrants stranded on an Italian coastguard boat off a Sicilian port after Rome insisted they would not be allowed to disembark.
Lord Jesus, our hearts cry out for these weary, burdened and desperate souls who are sent back and forth between countries who do not want them. Shine your face on them, Lord we pray and give them everlasting peace.
Headlines like, ‘Rival groups clash in suburbs of Libyan capital’, ‘Islamic State claims responsibility for west Libya attack’ and ‘Checkpoint attack kills four Libyan soldiers’ are the norm for Libya over the last years.
Father God, we pray that more and more Libyans will cry out to you and hear your gentle voice above all the noises, fighting and gunfire, in Jesus name.
Please declare the following over Libya today:
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! Isaiah 30:18
Eid al Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice begins tomorrow, the 21st August.
“He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:12
Lord, we declare to all Libyans that no animal sacrifice can substitute a sin offering, but only the blood of Jesus. We pray that your Holy Spirit will open their minds to realise that you are the Saviour.
“Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:22 We declare, Lord that you are the Lord of lords and the King of kings. We invite to all Libyans to turn to the only God who made heaven and earth. There is none like You. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
