Today, Eid al Fitr Festival marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting and prayer.

Tunis – At least 35 migrants were killed when their boat sank off Tunisia’s southern coast and 67 others were rescued by the coast guard, the Defence Ministry said on Sunday. The rescue operation was ongoing, the ministry said in a statement. The migrants were of Tunisian and other nationalities. Human traffickers increasingly use Tunisia as a launch pad for migrants heading to Europe as Libya’s coast guard, aided by armed groups, has tightened controls. Source.
Lord Jesus, we pray for these desperate people that are like sheep without a shepherd and being abused by ruthless smugglers. Empower the authorities to bring the criminals to justice and tighten security that this evil practice will stop in Jesus name.

May your light penetrate into the darkest places and rise in the hearts of thousands of Tunisians during Ramadan this year.
"But the hour is coming and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

May their witness during Ramadan extend all over Tunisia.
The Ascension of Jesus
When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God. —Luke 24:50-53 Lord, Ascension Day was celebrated yesterday, we pray that the Tunisian brothers and sisters will continually praise and worship you wherever they are, day and night.
“The priests, the sons of Levi, shall step forward, for the Lord your God has chosen them to minister and to pronounce blessings in the name of the Lord.” —Deuteronomy 21:5 We ask Lord to empower your children in Tunisia to be the light and blessing in the country and the North African region.
Father, we proclaim that your Word is like a hammer that breaks down rocks. We pray that Tunisian believers will speak your word in season and out of season to correct, rebuke and encourage with patience and careful instruction (Jeremiah 23:29; 2 Timothy 4:2)
“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,…” —Psalms 16:8-9

On this day, many Muslims around the world will celebrate Lailat Al Miraj (the Prophet Mohammed’s ascension to heaven) together, in special services put on by many mosques. Others will be marking the day in their own way at home, teaching children the significance of this event, and reciting prayers particular to this event.
Lord Jesus, we declare when you ascended to heaven, you took your place at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. May Tunisians have a revelation of who you really are.
