Monthly Archives: February 2015

In the era of Mass Media, Internet, live broadcasting of all events, Facebook, and twitter, reaching information about Christ, The Bible, and Salvation has become so easy. There are many TV Christian Arabic Networks that reach Egypt. There are also many Christian Radio Stations that reach the whole region. More than 16 Million Egyptians use Facebook. The possibility of reaching the majority has become so strong through the use of this media.

“The people walking in darkness ​​​​​​see a bright light; ​​​​​​light shines ​​​​​​on those who live in a land of deep darkness. ” Isaiah 9: 2

Let us pray this week:

  • – That God may use the Media to bring more people for his knowledge.
  • That God may use the Facebook to reach the Egyptian youth for his glory.
  • For anointed and powerful messages that are sent through TV as it has become one of the private channels used to know more about Christ.

May The Lord bring more Egyptians to his knowledge as he promised in Isaiah 19 that The Egyptians will know Him and he will be known in Egypt.

Father God, our prayer is to prepare the soil in Tunisia, so that the seeds of your Word sown over the centuries will grow and produce a hundred fold crop. Water the seeds with your Living Water and shine your face over the harvest, in Jesus name. (Mark 4:20)

Pray for Mauritania: Wednesday, February 25

Today we are asking God for favour for expatriate Christians who live and work in Mauritania. May they make friends with nationals. May their businesses and NGOs have success.  May they show themselves to be trustworthy to the nationals. May God provide for all their financial needs. May they experience good health and safety.

How else does God lead you to pray? What other blessings can you pray over them?

‘See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.’ (Col.2:8)

Lord Jesus, we pray that Libyans will be captivated by You and not by human traditions and deceptive philosophies.

The world has watched the horrific scenes of the brutal beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya by the hands of the so called ISIS. After the release of that video Egyptian Air forces hit ISIS camps in Libya, but the Egyptian people feel so broken, scared, and disgusted.

Many Christian Egyptians just feel they cannot pray for Muslims anymore. Muslim Egyptians are just blindly defending Islam and saying this is not true Islam.

Knowing that that faith-factor is one of the important motives of ISIS, we are sure they asked the beheaded Christians to forsake their faith and deny Jesus before being killed. Certainly they have refused, and hence taken to be slaughtered. Video analysis says that the last words on their lips were: “Lord…Jesus Christ..” Revelations 12: 11 says: “But they overcame him ​​​​​​by the blood of the Lamb ​​​​​​and by the word of their testimony, ​​​​​​and they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.”

Let us pray this week for:

  • Comfort for the families of the martyrs
  • Forgiveness and love in the hearts of Egyptian Christians to their Muslim friends, and neighbours.
  • Openness in the eyes of the minds of Muslim Egyptians to see the true God of love and forgiveness.

‘But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down
towards your holy temple.’ (Psalm 5:7) We pray today that all Tunisians will desire to enter your holy temple, Lord.

The Lord will guide you always;
  he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
  and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
  like a spring whose waters never fail.
  —Isaiah 58:11

Pray that the Church in Algeria choose the Lord as their guide and strength and find comfort from Him alone! Amen.

Pray for Everything

If my people pray

Prayer is the constant desire to be in God’s presence. We are learning His will, seeking to follow His will and inviting Him to be part of all we are doing.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
—Philippians 4:4-7

Few of us have really been trained in prayer. We see the pastor pray on Sundays, people pray before meals and over their kids, but few of us have ever been trained to desire to be in constant contact with the Father, asking Him to lead, guide and protect. Pray for old and young Christians in Libya that God will become a greater companion all day long. He is there, we are not. In the midst of all the violence and chaos that seems to reign in Libya, ask God to draw near to Christians in Libya. Pray that a strong connection with the Father will release more of His presence right across Libya. Pray that Libyan Christians would be praying more and more for their nation.  May they experience that the joy of the Lord is their strength in times of trial.

"Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon."
—Philippians 4:4-5
