“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!””
Abba Father You’re a good, good Father!
Abba You’re The Father of Egypt. And You come with Your goodness over her. Abba flood Egypt with The Holy Spirit. Flood Egypt with powerful signs and wonders that display Your goodness. Flood the streets of Egypt with signs and wonders, and Your unmistakable presence, just like Jesus flooded the streets of Israel 2000 years ago.
Flood Egyptians with dreams and visions of who You really are. Destroy every dream and vision from the evil one
Father, we intercede for Muslim families in Tunisia who are eagerly trying to seek you during Ramadan. Thank you Lord, that your Word promises that you will be found if they seek whole heartedly. (Jer.29:13)
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.” Joel 2:28
Father God we thank you for your promises, and ask that you pour out your Spirit on the peoples of Algeria, in this month of Ramadan. Fill their spiritual longings with your Holy Spirit! Reveal yourself to them in dreams and visions.
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.
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.”
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.
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
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 Nothing satisfies 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 grateful 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)
