After Ramadan, exams
While baccalaureate exams took place before Ramadan, many middle school, high school and university students will be sitting exams this week.
- May the Lord release wisdom, confidence, peace and great hope over these young ones.
- May many of these students encounter Jesus supernaturally as they cry out to God for help. May pressures and stresses lift as they experience God’s presence.
- Pray especially for students who will be preparing for exams under difficult conditions at home – ask Father to pour out grace and strength for the children and youth who have no access to quiet study spaces, who are burdened with household responsibilities, or who are surrounded by negativity and discouragement.
- Pray for those who are seeking God for success and a good future to receive a personal response from our Good Father.
“The LORD will cause people to hear his majestic voice
and will make them see his arm coming down
with raging anger and consuming fire,
with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.”
Lord God, we pray that the majority of the Libyan people will hear your majestic voice, and see your powerful arm reaching down to earth.
Today, Eid al Fitr Festival marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting and prayer.
We are forever thankful that you, Lord has already prepared a feast of rich foods, a banquet of aged wine, and the best meats for all peoples, including all Tunisians. May all accept the invitation to your banquet we pray.
We declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:7-8 Thank You, Lord, for the way You bring good from the evil tactics of the enemy of our soul. Give strength to the Algerian believers to stand strong against Satans attack on the life and name of Jesus in them.
The United Nations chief Antonio Guterres praised on Tuesday an agreement endorsed by Libya’s rival leaders to support elections as a “significant and welcome step forward” in the North African country’s political transition. Four powerful players in Libya, including UN-backed Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj and military leader Khalifa Haftar, agreed during a meeting in Paris to work toward holding parliamentary and presidential elections by December 10.

Father God, we know that you can channel the king’s heart in any direction that is pleasing to you. We bring all these role players in Libya to you and ask to work through them towards peace and stability, in Jesus name.
Through the last 10 days of the month of Ramadan Muslims in general become much more diligent in praying and fasting. The night of power (Laylat al-Qadr) is a very special night for them, more details on wikipedia.
Abba Father we pray for an extraordinary increase of the activity of Your Spirit, Your angels and Your intercessors. We pray millions of Egyptians would supernaturally encounter You and Your goodness. May they turn their hearts to You, The way and The Truth
In Jesus mighty we ask. Amen!
Tunis – At least 35 migrants were killed when their boat sank off Tunisia’s southern coast and 67 others were rescued by the coast guard, the Defence Ministry said on Sunday. The rescue operation was ongoing, the ministry said in a statement. The migrants were of Tunisian and other nationalities. Human traffickers increasingly use Tunisia as a launch pad for migrants heading to Europe as Libya’s coast guard, aided by armed groups, has tightened controls. Source.
Lord Jesus, we pray for these desperate people that are like sheep without a shepherd and being abused by ruthless smugglers. Empower the authorities to bring the criminals to justice and tighten security that this evil practice will stop in Jesus name.
Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison… Hebrews 13:3a Lord, meet the needs today of Algerian believers in prison for their faith in You. Help them to glorify You in their situation. Grant strength to their family member as they wait patiently for release.
Ramadan week 4: Blessed
During the month of Ramadan, faithful Muslims are consciously practicing what is prescribed to them in order to increase their chances of gaining forgiveness from God.
Pray for God to break through the blinding veil of religion and reveal the blessing of the Cross.
“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is not deceit.
For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
Through my groaning all day long.
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
My strength was dried up
As by the heat of summer.
I acknowledged my sin to you,
And I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’
And you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
Surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him,
You are a hiding place for me;
You preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.”
Ramadan week 4: Ready To Be Found
“I’ve made myself available to those who haven’t bothered to ask. I’m here, ready to be found by those who haven’t bothered to look. I kept saying ‘I’m here, I’m right here’ to a nation that ignored me. I reached out day after day to a people who turned their backs on me, people who make wrong turns, who insist on doing things their own way.” Isaiah 65: 1-2 (MSG)
The Lord is reaching out to Morocco. He is ready to be found.
Pray over the overflowing crowds that attend Taraweeh prayers (“extra” Ramadan prayer time, after the breaking of fast) each night. May there be many who will find Jesus. May those who have their backs turned towards the Lord encounter Him face to face. There is nothing impossible with God.
