Over the four days of this campaign we will provide content covering the entire prayer cycle. Today we will focus on: read the Word, petition, and intercession.
Spend time reading examples of disaster in scripture and ask God to guide you in praying it for Morocco and Libya.
“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” -Matthew 24:7, 14
“Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unfruitful lives.” –Titus 3:14
Make general requests on behalf of Libyans and Moroccans. Ask God to bless you to be a blessing in the midst of crisis. Ask God to turn people to Him, heal, and recover His design through disaster.
“I called on your name, Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears to my cry for relief.” You came near when I called you, and you said, “Do not fear.” –Lamentations 3:55-57
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.” –2 Corinthians 1:3-7
Make specific requests on behalf of Libyans and Moroccans.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” –Matthew 5:4
“You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia.” –1 Thessalonians 1:6-7
“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” –Romans 12:15
