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)
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?
1 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.
May this be the experience of believers in Morocco today – both nationals and expatriates.
‘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.
Pray that the Church in Algeria choose the Lord as their guide and strength and find comfort from Him alone! Amen.
Ask God to strengthen believers today who may encounter a lot of persecution. Pray that God will encounter them with His Presence, teaching them from His Word, and grow them in faith and maturity in their difficult circumstances.
