The Capital Region
We stand with our brothers and sisters to declare: “prepare the way of the Lord” over the administrative region of Rabat/Sale/Kenitra.
- Praise God that the light of His Kingdom is spreading and taking root in this region – we celebrate this as we ask for more!
- This is a region of great political influence. May the ways of the Kingdom of Light gather momentum at the top of the power structure of this nation and be released to cover the whole land.
- May our brothers and sisters experience the unity that Jesus himself is interceding for; and may this unity impact the Body in the rest of the nation.
Bold as a Lion
“The wicked flee when no one is pursuing them, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
“So that we confidently say, ‘the Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’” Hebrews 13:6
Thank you Lord for the boldness and confidence that is stirring up among believers in Morocco. We ask for more.
As our brothers and sisters in Morocco respond to Your greatness and worth in boldness, shower them with Your abundant joy, wisdom, and hope.
Be their strength and shield. Hide them under the shadow of Your wings and give them favour and protection.
May the church in Morocco be released into a season of dynamic growth; in intimacy and in fruitfulness! The lions are out of the cage, and ready to take the land!
Religion to Relationship
Pray for Fes-the religious capital of Morocco. Pray for the religious leaders and scholars of Fes. May there be those who are like “Nicodemus” among them; seeking after Jesus and daring to pursue truth. May the Word of God come in power among them, cutting through strongholds and lies.
We proclaim over every mosque and religious institution in Fes:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 ESV
By the power of God, may Fes become known as a place of “relationship” with God rather than “religion.”
Grace and Power
“Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. To me, though I am the very least of al the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness ad access with confidence through our faith in him.” Ephesians 3:7-12
Pray for the church in Morocco in this season of increasing harvest
May they minister according to God’s grace, make plain the mystery hidden in God, make known the wisdom of God in the heavenly places, and walk in boldness and confidence.
Pray for the Eastern frontier of Morocco – from the Mediterranean coast through the Rif mountains, down to the Sahara.
This is an isolated and sparsely-populated area that is relatively unreached by the Gospel. Pray for:
- Many to have supernatural encounters with Jesus through dreams, visions, media and divine appointments with believers.
- God to send out labourers for the gospel to this region from within Morocco and elsewhere.
- Seeds of the gospel that have been planted through the last decades to bear much fruit
- The city of Oujda – the largest urban centre in this region; especially for young people who are truth-seekers and are hungry for change
Blessings in the Marketplace
“Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.” Titus 3:14
Pray for followers of Jesus to receive wisdom and guidance from God to impact the business sector of Morocco.
- May the Lord guide them in doing what is good.
- May the Lord bless each workplace with productivity, dynamic growth, and kingdom fruit.
His Perfect Word
“God’s Word is perfect in every way, how it revived our souls! His laws lead us to truth, and his ways make us wise! His teachings make us joyful and radiate His light, his precepts are so pure! His commands, how they challenge us to keep close to His heart! The revelation-light of His Word makes my spirit shine radiant! Living my life in the Holy fear of God keeps me faithful, and to follow Him keeps me full of life! Nothing He says ever needs to be changed. The rarest treasures of life are found in His truth. That is why I prize God’s Word like others prize the finest gold. Nothing brings the soul such sweetness as seeking his living words.” Psalm 19:7-10 (The Passion Translation)
The Word of God is becoming increasingly accessible to Moroccans, especially through the internet and smart phone apps.
- Pray for those who already have access to the Bible to read, understand and receive it by the power of the Holy Spirit.
- Pray for those who have been touched and changed by God’s Word to become effective and fruitful in sharing.
- Pray for the common misconception that “the Bible has been corrupted” to no longer hold sway among the public
- Pray for 2018 to be a year when the living Word of God will touch every village, town and city of Morocco in each of its 12 regions.
This Christmas week, we bless Morocco with the light and love of the Messiah.
May the light of God spread far and wide; carrying the peace and triumph of God’s truth.
May the love of Jesus reach deeply into the hearts and communities; destroying every obstacle that’s hindering full intimacy between the Messiah and His chosen ones.
Advent Week 3: Running Ahead
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." Hebrews 12:1-3
Shower prayers over the church in Morocco as brothers and sisters march ahead towards a season of accelerated Kingdom growth.
- A swift and resolute throwing off of sin and “everything that hinders.”
- Unity in our hunger and desire for holiness and Oneness with God
- Strength, courage and perseverance as we run ahead to break new ground for the kingdom
- The Holy Spirit to help us in steadfast and wholehearted adoration of Jesus
- Deep encouragement to flow between brothers and sisters and from the Holy Spirit to each heart
Advent (Week 1): “O Little Town of Bethlehem”
As we sing this familiar carol, may the Holy Spirit help us carry Morocco in our hearts, and bind together our adoration of Emmanuel and our intercession for this land. May the last lines of each verse, in particular, become reality in every little town of Morocco.
O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.
For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars together, proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth!
How silently, how silently, the wondrous Gift is giv’n;
So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of His Heav’n.
No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in.
Where children pure and happy pray to the blessèd Child,
Where misery cries out to Thee, Son of the mother mild;
Where charity stands watching and faith holds wide the door,
The dark night wakes, the glory breaks, and Christmas comes once more.
O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in, be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel!
