DAY 30 - April 8
Tripoli, Libya

People Groups Focus

Tripoli, Libya’s capital city, is a large metropolitan area on the Mediterranean Sea. It is situated just south of Sicily and north of the Sahara. It is home to 1.2 million people.

Prior to its independence in 1951, the country was under foreign rule intermittently for over two thousand years. Due to their arid climate, Libya was almost completely dependent on foreign aid and imports for the stability of their economy until petroleum was discovered in the late 1950s.

After the rise and fall of the socialist state under Muammar Gaddafi’s leadership, the nation has been struggling to end the residual conflict and build state institutions. Libya’s people suffered greatly during this time, with many thousands of casualties and 60% of the population malnourished.

Large numbers of migrants come into Tripoli, hoping to make the dangerous passage to Italy. The current chaos in Libya gives freedom for traffickers to exploit these vulnerable people.

Christians are about 2.5% of the population. Only a fifth of these are evangelical. Many Jesus followers remain in hiding in fear of severe persecution or death.


Prayer Emphasis

  • Pray for thousands of Christ-exalting, multiplying house churches in the 27 languages spoken in this city.
  • Pray for a mighty movement of prayer to sweep over the house churches.
  • Pray for Tripoli to be a sending place, impacting the entire nation and the region with the delivering power of Jesus.
  • Pray for the Kingdom of God to destroy the works of the devil.
