Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison… Hebrews 13:3a Lord, meet the needs today of Algerian believers in prison for their faith in You. Help them to glorify You in their situation. Grant strength to their family member as they wait patiently for release.
Ramadan week 4: Blessed
During the month of Ramadan, faithful Muslims are consciously practicing what is prescribed to them in order to increase their chances of gaining forgiveness from God.
Pray for God to break through the blinding veil of religion and reveal the blessing of the Cross.
“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, And in whose spirit there is not deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away Through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; My strength was dried up As by the heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to you, And I did not cover my iniquity; I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ And you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; Surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him, You are a hiding place for me; You preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.” Psalm 32:1-7
See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. Hebrews 12:15 Lord, help new believers around the world to recognize Satan’s deceitful tactics and the bitter root that will keep them in bondage. We pray against this root and ask in the mighty name of Jesus it not be allowed to manifest.
Ramadan Week 3: In a sun-scorched land
Temperatures in parts of Mauritania have gone up to the mid to high 40s (104-118 F) since Ramadan started. Many Mauritanians who fast from food and drink in this weather cannot afford adequate nourishment for their evening “break-fast” meal. There is also social pressure for nursing mothers and pregnant women to participate in the fasting, even though it is not considered required by the religion.
Lord, have mercy on your dear ones who are ultimately seeking to find secure refuge in Your love. Strengthen their bodies and breathe life into their spirits. May they know that the fasting that you seek is the kind that looses the chains of the oppressed.
“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11
Ramadan Week 3: Pray for first encounters
In reply to the question: “Why are you fasting?” A Moroccan law student said: “ I always fast during Ramadan. Everyone is fasting.” It was a stretch for her to conceive of not simply fulfilling the requirements of a religion that she was steeped in.
Pray for young Moroccans like her, who are just beginning to grapple with the “why” questions about life and faith. Pray that God will courage and hunger to them, so that they will venture beyond the confines of religion, and say yes to an abiding relationship with Christ.
May this Ramadan be filled with first encounters with Jesus and may this song become the testimony of many Moroccans.
Fountains / J. Baldwin
I will never forget I met you
The moment you called my name
Pulled me out of the darkness
Gave me a promise
To never thirst again
All that I ever wanted
My heart has found in you
I have tasted life
Like you do
The fount that won’t run dry
Nothing satisfies like you do
I want all that You offer
Your living water
Drink from the endless well
I will sit at your table
Forever where You plan
All my fountains are in
All my hope is built on your love
All my fountains are in you
With every breath I live for you Lord
Father, we thank you for all the good plans you have for the people of Libya, plans to prosper and not to harm them. We ask for your standard against the plans of the enemy. May the arrows of Islam be headless and split apart.(Ps 58:7)
and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
Cancer, Virus C, kidney failures, bones problems, liver failures, etc… are too common in Egypt. The health care system is not the best at all especially for Egyptians who can not afford it.
Abba Father we are grateful for the divine and natural healings among the people of Egypt. But we come before You desperate for more so much more. Abba many Egyptians are sick because of psychological and spiritual reasons. Abba heal the land of Egypt. Abba heal the people of Egypt.
Abba Father raise up Godly men and women to improve the health care system in Egypt and serve the people of Egypt
Abba Father raise up more godly men and women who will pursue Your promises for healing, signs and wonders. Answer the many questions that arise from past failures. Purify our teachings and doctrine from the seeds of the enemy. Holy Spirit we desperately cry out for breakthroughs. Jesus paid for it in full
In Jesus mighty name we ask. A m e n !
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;” —2 Peter 1:19 Lord Jesus, you are the Light of the world and the bright Morning star. May your light penetrate into the darkest places and rise in the hearts of thousands of Tunisians during Ramadan this year.
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?… No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:7-11 Focusing more on Jesus, make us keenly aware of how your children should live. As the Algerian people endure hardships, give them insight to see discipline and hardships will produce a harvest of righteousness and peace.
‘…for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things’. —Psalms 107:9 Lord Jesus, lover of all souls, increase the people’s hunger and thirst for real food and drink during Ramadan.
