For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, churches in Malaysia were allowed to celebrate Easter in person. COVID-19 restrictions in Malaysia were eased at the start of April which meant church services were allowed to go ahead. Praise the Lord for the joy this brought to many Christian Believers. Pray that many more Malaysians will come to know the all-powerful God who is at work in this nation despite the persecutions that Christians face. His wisdom is profound, and His power is vast (The Bible, Job 9:4).
In a daring and outstanding rescue operation Brigade of the Government of National Unity freed 195 people, including 23 women and two children, from the grip of a criminal gang in central Libya. Such abductions happen in Libya for demand for ransom. The gang leader and the bandits were arrested and the freed persons will be given medical treatment. In another case, Tunisian fishermen who were detained at sea were released in Libya. Such detentions of the fishermen have become recurrent. Pray for the Libyans to encounter God’s awesome might as He is all-powerful to save them from their sins and give them peace. Pray for the Christian Believers in Libya to declare the greatness of God to multitudes of the people who need to know the Lord who reigns (The Bible, Revelation 19:6).
