The US special envoy to Libya, shared the frustration of Libyans over delays to the country’s long-awaited elections. Speaking at a news conference at the headquarters of the Libyan High National Elections Committee in Tripoli, he urged all parties to move swiftly towards producing a successful outcome. Libyans truly want to see progress on the issue of the departure of foreign mercenaries, foreign fighters and foreign forces. Oil-rich Libya is split by rival administrations, one in the east, backed by military commander Khalifa Hifter, and a UN-supported administration in the west, in the capital of Tripoli. Each side is supported by different militias and foreign powers. Pray for Libya’s current political crisis to cease and for a new government to be formed at the earliest time. Pray that the kingdom of God invades lives and communities, changing the future of Libya (The Bible, 2 Peter 1:11).
Malaysia held general elections in November. Since the 2018 elections, there have been three prime ministers as the nation has struggled to find stable leadership and governance. Pray for the new government to be touched by the Holy Spirit, to find His wisdom, and to know the truth and reality of Jesus Christ. Pray that this Christmas season, the many Christians in Malaysia will find creative and meaningful way to share the joy of this season with their neighbors and colleagues who don’t yet know Jesus as Savior (The Bible, Luke 2:11).
