Father of Compassion, so many thousands have been killed in the violent clashes in Libya. Please come today and minister to all the orphans, widows and all who lost loved ones in this senseless war.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Pet.3:9 Thank you, Lord that you want all Libyans to be saved. May many precious souls hear your knocking at their hearts.
“…but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!” Psalm 66:19-20 May Libyans cry out to you in 2019 in large numbers praise you for your everlasting love.
May the Good News of the Gospel reach thousands upon thousands of Libyan souls this new year. May it refresh the weary souls like cold water. (Proverbs 25:25)

“The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites.
