At midnight the Lord killed every firstborn male in Egypt from the firstborn son of Pharaoh who ruled the land to the firstborn son of the prisoner in jail, and also every firstborn animal. Pharaoh, all his officials, and all the other Egyptians got up during the night. There was loud crying throughout Egypt because in every house someone had died. —Exodus 12: 29,30
Years ago God visited Egypt with HIS judgement and there was a dead firstborn in every house. Pray that tonight (Easter Night in Egypt) the Holy Spirit would visit every house from the President’s house to the house of the prisoner in jail again. But this time to magnify the sacrificed Lamb of GOD. This time there would be life born in every house. Yes a nation would be born in one day
One new worker who is still learning Moroccan Arabic, has a “dictionary” of spiritual vocabulary in Moroccan Arabic on his iPhone. When he hears a word, or it comes up in conversation, he says, “Oh, I’ve heard this word before. Let me find it.” He pulls up the word on his iPhone and plays the recording of the word and its meaning. In this way he has started many spiritual conversations with Moroccan people.
Pray for fruit to come from these spiritual conversations.
Pray for the use of technology to be more wide-spread among workers.
Pray that the use of technology will be a blessing to church growth in Morocco.
Thank God that many people can access websites, chat rooms and other internet based resources using their iPhones!
May God use this to extend His Kingdom and spread the Gospel.
Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ None of the disciples dared ask him, ‘Who are you?’ They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. —John 21:12
Thank you, Lord for inviting the Libyan people to come to you and enjoy fellowship with you.
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” —John 12:32 (NKJV)
Easter Sunday is celebrated in Egypt and the Eastern churches next week. Easter Sunday is May 1st. Starting Palm Sunday (April 24th) most of the churches hold daily meetings remembering Jesus’ last week on Earth. Many of these meetings are focused on evangelism and sharing the good news. One house of prayer runs 24×7 Worship and Intercession meetings starting Thursday night till the morning of Easter Sunday. Many of these meetings are broadcasted live even on the National Television Channel.
Please pray for the fire and oil of the Holy Spirit to anoint these meetings and the speakers. Pray that millions from all backgrounds would hear the truth and their hearts would be pierced. Please pray that hearts would respond to the call of the Holy Spirit and repent. Please pray that Jesus will truly draw this precious people, this special nation to Himself. HE is our real and only need.
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. —Psalm 25:1-7
Holy God we pray for the peoples of Algeria who may feel discouraged by the ‘enemies’ who appear to triumph over them. May they know you have won the victory and this victory is theirs also.
Those who walk righteously and speak uprightly,
who despise the gain of oppression,
who wave away a bribe instead of accepting it,
who stop their ears from hearing of bloodshed
and shut their eyes from looking on evil,
they will live on the heights;
their refuge will be the fortresses of rocks;
their food will be supplied, their water assured.”
These are mighty promises of God for those who walk righteously, speak uprightly, who don’t oppress others, or accept bribes! What amazing blessings safety, food and water are—especially to those who live in dry lands like Mauritania!
Pray that God would raise up a generation of righteous people, who walk in integrity!
Pray that the issue of slavery will be exposed and dealt with in a more thorough way.
Pray that Believers will be fine examples of righteousness and honesty.
Pray that God would open doors so that bribes do not need to be paid.
Ask God to meet the physical needs of those who love and follow Him in this nation where persecution is harsh.
At one English-speaking international church in Morocco, a fundraising fair was organised and the doors were opened to both church members and anyone passing by. A Moroccan came in and got talking to one of the church members. They asked for a Bible. The church, being an international church, only had English Bibles, but the church member was able to show the Moroccan on their mobile phone where to download a Bible in Moroccan Arabic. What a great opportunity. Pray that more people will know where to access the Bible in the local dialect of Arabic spoken in Morocco.
