May God arise, may his enemies be scattered in Libya. May his foes flee before him. As smoke is blown away by the wind, may you blow them away. (Ps 68:1)
Month of Ramadan June 28 – July 28 2014
Muslims around the world take time to get closer to God through fasting and Prayer! Lets Stand in the Gap along side them all and ask the Father to revel himself to them.
As more than 75 Million Muslims in Egypt Prepare for this important month, let’s Pray and declare Psalm 16 over the nation!
Psalm 16 Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” I say of the holy people who are in the land, “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.” Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips. Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. 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, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful[b] one see decay. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
We thank you Lord that you will go to strange places to look for ONE lost sheep as you have done for the demon possessed man in Luke 8:22-25. We rejoice for each new brother and sister in Tunisia.
I’m pretty sure God loves football and Algeria is the only North African team represented in World Cup 2014.
Why not offer up a prayer on behalf of their team? And once you’ve done that pray for the void that football, winning or losing, can’t fill. Pray for dreams, visions and miracles in Christ’s name for His Glory!
We pray for peace and safety in Mauritania in the lead up to elections on June 21. We pray that the right leader will be appointed to this important role.
We pray that the Church in Morocco be strengthened this week. We ask that God will raise up strong visionary leadership. We pray that new people will be welcomed into the Moroccan church.
When a child is born in Morocco, the grandfather or father of the child will whisper in their ear the Shahada, the chant that declares that there is only one God and Mohammed is his prophet. This is the first thing the new baby hears. From that moment on that child is said to be a Muslim.
How can we pray?
* Please pray the children will hear another voice, the voice of the loving Father who desires to give them salvation and see them face to face in Heaven.
* Pray that at a young age Moroccan children will begin to have dreams about Jesus as their Messiah and that they will put their trust in him.
* Ask that they will doubt the sayings of Mohammed and the traditions that do not bring them closer to God. Pray that the fathers who whisper the Shahada in their children’s ear will begin to doubt it. Pray that they will realize the life they ask Mohammed to give their children is not enough.
* Ask God for protection around the lives of children in Morocco.
* Pray for workers who are working with Moroccan children to have wisdom about how to sow in the truths of Jesus and to bring blessing into the lives of these children and their families.
Praise the Lord, all Libyans. Extol him! For great is his love towards you. The faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. (Ps 117: 1-2)
Hear, all Tunisia that your soul may live. The Lord God Almighty wants to make an everlasting covenant with you….” (Is 55:3)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” —Matthew 11:28-30
Lord, you are awesome! And your burden is easier to bear than criticism and scoffing from family, friends, or society. May Algerian believers find their rest in you!
