Imprisoned Christians Could Face Death Penalty

[163] prayers in [8] nations have been posted for Imprisoned Christians.

Front-line workers request prayer for eight Christians in Libya, including six Libyans and two foreigners, who have been imprisoned for their faith: “Please pray for these believers who have recently been imprisoned to stand firm in their faith as they endure persecution for the name of Christ.” The front-line worker added that some of those now being held in jail “could be sentenced to death for their obedience to God’s Word and for sharing it with others in the country.” Libya has remained unstable and chaotic since the revolution and overthrow of its dictator in 2011. Three opposing governments vie for control, and the conflicts have severely damaged the country’s infrastructure and rendered gospel work in the country extremely difficult.

  • Father, bring stability to Libya for the sake of the gospel for the sake of your name. I ask for the imprisoned Christians Ps. 119:170 "Let my supplication come before you, deliver me according to your promise." If they are executed, you still give the victory in the resurrection, but I ask for your power to be shown at this time to spread your work.
