Aug 15: Libya | Operation World

Large numbers of migrants pass into Libya, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, looking for economic opportunities. Some find work in Libya, most are trying to get into Europe. Migration drains Libya’s coffers and human resources and often ends in disillusionment or even tragedy for those braving the deserts and seas to find a new life. Pray that these tens or even hundreds of thousands would find salvation and not just earthly treasures. A significant portion are believers; pray that they might have a powerful spiritual impact on Libyans and fellow migrants.

The Christian community is growing, but is mostly foreign. Catholic and Orthodox groups dominate numerically, but Protestants and Independent groups are more active in faith and practice. The need for pastoral care is felt across almost all denominations. Pray for renewal in the churches; the opportunity is great for nominals to meet Christ, and for believers to impact others with the gospel.
