We thank you, Lord for your divine power which has given us Christians everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of you. We pray that Libyan believers will tap into that power today and shine your light in the country. (2 Peter 1:3)
Khalid was a serious man who worked for the secret police. Yet others in his family had become friends with new Christian neighbours. When they experienced a problem, their religious leaders had no solutions or answers but, when the Christians prayed, they were solved instantly. To counteract the perceived shame to his family’s religion, he attempted to drive the Christians from his neighbourhood through fear, However, this backfired and word of the Gospel and God’s interventions spread rapidly throughout the community.
How to pray:
- Pray that Khalid will be changed from a Saul into a Paul.
- Pray for more answered prayers.
- Pray that many will open their hearts and minds to the Gospel they hear.
- Ask for a mighty harvest in this community and all across Egypt.
- Thank God that He demonstrates His love and power through answering our prayers.
Poverty has been one of the oppressors of the Egyptian people for a long time. Bread earning has become the most important issue in the lives of many because of the limited resources and the limited job opportunities.
Let us pray that God may feed the poor and fill their needs, so that they can praise Him and turn to Him…
“Do not let the afflicted be turned back in shame! Let the oppressed and poor praise your name!” —Psalm 74:21
Today, we as intercessors for Tunisia, stand before the ‘Goliath forces’ who try to scare, and destroy the country and the people with swords, spears, javelins and rifles. We proclaim like David, that we come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God who made heaven and earth by only speaking a word. This battle is the Lord’s and your defeat is certain in Jesus name.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
—1 Timothy 2:1,2
I praise you for farmers who are trying to make the best of the small amount of land which is good for growing crops in this dry desert land. I pray, God, that you would increase the productivity of the land. I ask that you would give wisdom to farmers to know their land well, and know how to get the most out of it. I pray that they will be able to provide for their families and communities.
I pray for foreign NGOs involved in farming projects. May they have creativity and wisdom. May they teach principles well. May they inspire others to learn new things. May their work be a blessing to the nation and people of Mauritania. We ask that you will bless them with success.
Today, I want to lift up the law makers and upholders in Morocco. I pray that You would raise up worthy judges and lawyers. I pray that you would give wisdom to the law makers. I pray that You would overturn unjust laws. I pray that you would raise up the human rights movement that will speak out for justice issues. Thank you, Lord, Amen.
Psalm 106:3 “How blessed are those who keep justice, who practise righteousness at all times!”
Father, we want to cry out with our brothers and sisters in Libya to give ear, Lord and see, listen to the words of the enemy, who runs around like a roaring lion. Deliver us from the enemy, that all kingdoms on earth may know that you alone, O Lord are God. (2 Kings 19:16-19)
In the Summer period many Christians go for outreaches inside and outside Egypt to many parts of the surrounding countries. God said “….” Mat. 2: 15.
Let us pray for effective witness in Egypt and outside it by Egyptian Christians in the coming few weeks so that all people might know his salvation.
We pray today for Tunisians to recognise you, Lord Jesus, as the Good Shepherd, the only shepherd who laid down his life and cares for his sheep. You strengthen the weak, bind up the injured, heal the sick, bring back the strays and search for the lost ones. (John 10:10)
