Arab, Libyan in Libya

Simon of Cyrene helped Jesus carry His cross to His death in our place! Today, there are no good roads, very little communication and trade in Cyrene. Not much is known about the lifestyle of Cyrenacian Arabs in Libya.

Ministry Obstacles

In 2014 only 75 believers were known to exist among over a million Cyrenaician Arabs, most of whom are Sunni Muslims. No known churches exist today. Because of the current unrest in Libya, communications systems are in jeopardy, which might keep them from downloading essential gospel materials.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for a “Book of Acts” type of movement to Christ among the Cyrenaician Arabs that will bless all the peoples of Libya. Pray for God to raise up bi-vocational lay leaders who can help them earn a better living and give them the opportunity to meet the One who gives life more abundantly.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray that there will soon be networks of believing families that will open their doors to Libya for His glory and love. Pray for a chain reaction of families reach families that will result in thousands of new believers who share their faith with other, no matter what the cost.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray for God to pour out His blessing on the religious and secular leaders of Cyrenaician Arabs so that they will give Him praise. * Ask Him to bless the families of these leaders and inspire whole communities to welcome salvation through faith in Jesus.

Scripture Focus

"You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
