How You Can Pray

Pray for National Leaders. Pray God's blessings on the head of government, other ministers and officials. Pray that family members of the leaders will hear the gospel on the radio, for the leaders to meet genuine believers in their travels, and for God to move the right person to share the gospel with them. Ask God to give the leaders wisdom to rule their countries with justice, righteousness and mercy, creating policies that would allow the gospel to go forward in their land.

The heads of the North African nations are:

  • Algeria: President Abdelaziz Boutefika
  • Libya: Mu/ammar Qadaffi
  • Mauritania: President Maaouya Ould Sid'Ahmed Taya
  • Morocco: King Mohamed VI
  • Tunisia: President Zine Abdine Ben Ali

Pray for the Christians. Pray for courage -- that they will overcome intimidation and fear. Pray that they would have a solid revelation of God's love and be strengthened to persevere and be faithful to the Lord. Pray for maturity in their faith and appropriate teaching to build them up. Pray for encouragement for those who live outside the main cities with limited contact with other Christians. Pray for creative opportunities for tentmaking workers to gain access, and for more long-term workers. Pray for continued, strengthened unity in working together.

Pray for the strategic cities and towns of North Africa.

Pray that the Muslim people might come to know Issa (Jesus) not only as the prophet, but also as the Son of God.

Pray for the satellite television and radio ministry; wisdom for those involved in choosing content for these programs, and for effective means to follow up those who show interest.
