“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.
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.
“At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.” Matthew 27:51 Father God, we are eternally grateful for your redemption on Calvary 2000 years ago. Thank you, that Jesus our High Priest went into the Holy of Holies first and that you yourself tore the curtain for all people to enter into a relationship with you.
“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 1:1 We bless our Tunisian brothers and sisters today with Grace and Peace in abundance.
“Fill your horn with oil and be on your way…” 1 Samuel 16:1 We pray for Tunisian Christians today, Lord Jesus, to allow you to fill them with your anointing oil and share the good news everywhere they go.
Perpetua and Felicity (believed to have died in 203 AD) were Christian martyrs of the 3rd century. Vibia Perpetua was a married noblewoman, said to have been 22 years old at the time of her death, and mother of an infant she was nursing. Felicity, a slave imprisoned with her and pregnant at the time, was martyred with her. They were put to death along with others at Carthage in the Roman province of Africa Died March 7, 203, feast day March 7, Carthage.
Lord Jesus Christ, we marvel at the boldness and courage of these two martyrs. May their story ‘sound out’ like a trumpet over Tunisia.
“My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.” Job 42:5 Lord Jesus, we pray that all Tunisians will be able to see you with their own eyes, fall down and worship you, the King of kings.
We delight ourselves today as we think of the vibrant Christian community in Tunisia during the first centuries. May your kingdom come afresh and your will be done in this country, Lord! (Mat. 6:10)
Lord Jesus, we desire for Tunisians to meet you in person. That each and every one will be able to say:
‘My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.’ Psalms 62:1
Tunisia is back on a knife edge – here’s why
Disillusion has since kept building, according to the 2016 Arab Barometer. Successive governments have either been unwilling or unable to fulfil their citizens’ demands for economic and political inclusion. These policies have continued to produce economic stagnation, increased government debt and reliance on development assistance and soft loans. Corruption remains a problem and the unemployment rate is still in double figures, especially among university graduates. Tourism continues to struggle after the terrorism of 2015, even though it has been improving. source
Lord we pray that You, the King of glory will enter into Tunisia and save it from the Destroyer.
