Resurrection

We pray for Libyans to realize that Jesus is alive, because He is the God of the living and not the dead. We proclaim that He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father above all rule, authority, power and dominion.

Good Friday.

We thank you, Lord that Jesus, your Son, completed his redeeming work, sacrificed for our sins once and for all and made a public spectacle of all the powers and authorities at the cross 2000 years ago. May all Tunisians have a fresh revelation of who you are today.

Polls Open in Algeria

Bouteflika votes from wheel chair

Al Aribiya writes:

The polls opened in Algeria’s presidential election on Thursday with the incumbent Abdelaziz Bouteflika widely expected to win after 15 years in power even though he has spoken rarely in public since suffering a stroke last year.

More than 260,000 police have been deployed to protect the 50,000 polling booths set up across Africa’s largest country, where 23 million Algerians are eligible to vote in a contest between six candidates after polling opened at 8:00 am (0700 GMT).

This election will not be without controversy, Algeria is an important provider of gas to Europe and a key partner in America’s anti-islamic militancy campaign.

The results are expected at the earliest on Friday, polling stations close at 1800 GMT.

Lord, we pray for the future of Algeria today as the nation elects their leader.

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
(1 Timothy 2:1, NIV)

Prayer and Fasting for Tunisia

Workers in Tunisia request prayer for the following:

Pray for a growing ministry on behalf of all the different peoples and areas in Tunisia. There is one small village that is connected to a whole valley where a group of people meet weekly asking God to work deeper in the lives of these people and this area. Pray for this team, pray for more teams like this to meet together to pray specifically over peoples and different areas in Tunisia. Pray that pioneer teams would go into these areas with the Good News and find people ready to receive the great news of Jesus. Pray that those who come to the Lord will also start to pray for those around them, that new believers will start asking the Father to continue to push His Kingdom out even farther. May God challenge us all to increase our prayer and fasting for the different areas and peoples of Tunisia.


Paul taught people to pray and increase in their prayers:

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. —Ephesians 6:18

Father, our hearts soften for the beggars and the homeless in Morocco, where there is no social security system to provide. I ask for your loving care and provision for them. I specially ask for your angels to guard and protect children living on the streets. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Jesus, we know that there are many refugees from Mali who are currently living in Mauritania. Many are desperate and there is a big lack of food to provide for them. We ask that You release the funds needed to the NGOs trying to meet this need.

May the God of peace equip Libyan believers with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in you what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. (Heb. 13:21)

Mary Sameh George, a 25-year-old Christian who lived with her parents and sister in Cairo, was brutally attacked and killed on March 28 by pro-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators. —Voice of the Martyrs

Lord, we pray for the families of those affected, be their strength and comfort. Let not fear paralyze the heart of your church in Egypt, but embolden them with your Holy Spirit.

> ‘I reveal myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, Here am I, here am I. (Isaiah 65:1)

Thank you Father for revealing yourself to the Tunisian nation!
