Libya

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The failure of UN-led talks in Libya to reach a compromise over December 24, 2021, elections endanger a roadmap that had raised hopes of ending a decade of chaos. We command a unified constitutional forum to reach consensus. Make the rival administrations that emerged backed by a complex patchwork of militias, mercenaries and foreign powers to think together for the betterment of the country. Grant the Libyan people’s overwhelming demand for national elections as they are hoping for the voter registration update considered to be a key milestone event. Lord, bring to end the many years of conflict and division in Libya and cause the Libyans to move forward and exercise one of their most basic rights. Invigorate the worn-out Christian Believers for their bold stand against the atrocities to courageously profess the Gospel of Jesus Christ submitting them to God to resist and chase the devil to flee from them (The Bible, James 4:7).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The top U.N. official for Libya warned that the conflict-torn North African country is at “a decisive turning point”, with foreign backers of its rival governments pouring in weapons and the misery of its people compounded by the CORONAVIRUS pandemic that appears to be “spiraling out of control“. Its fallout will worsen the humanitarian suffering of Libya’s civil war and possibly reconfigure the tempo and geographic scope of the conflict. Early attempts to halt the hostilities in order to deal with the outbreak have faltered; so far, the warring parties and their foreign backers seem committed to escalating the fighting around Tripoli.
