Frid 28th Tunisia
“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,…”
Father God, today we pray for your Tunisian children. We pray that they will experience your peace, that their eyes will always be on you and their mouths always singing your praise.

and will make them see his arm coming down
with raging anger and consuming fire,
with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.”
Lord God, we pray that the majority of the Tunisians will hear your majestic voice, and see your powerful arm reaching down to earth.

Ramadan 2019 Night of Power 1 June
The 27th day of Ramadan is the holiest day of during the month of fasting. Muslims believe that the Qu’ran was first revealed to Mohammad during the last week of Ramadan.
O Lord of all power and might, on this night of power, would You reveal Yourself in dreams and visions to the millions of Muslims who will be praying and seeking Allah. They want to experience Your power but are looking in the wrong places. Lead them to Christian believers and to the Bible that can explain what they see. We ask for many conversions on this night! May we hear testimonies later of Muslims who first encountered you on this night. Show Yourself as the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25).
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.” Colossians 4:2,3
Father, we ask for open doors to spread the gospel in Tunisia, especially now during Ramadan. May the small number of believers proclaim Jesus Christ boldly.

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)
