“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends. – 2 Corinthians 10:17-18

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:3-11

Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor. – Proverbs 18:12

Derna has a long history of Islamist radicalism. Marginalized during the Gadhafi era, it contributed more foreign fighters per capita to al Qaeda in Iraq than any other town in the Middle East. It has also provided scores of fighters for ISIS in Syria. This town is known for its pride in being the “most pious town is Libya” Pray that God will reveal to them their true state before God and reveal that no man can boast! Pray that they would take on the humility of Christ that became nothing to save us. Pray that God would transform this place and instead it would send out the most peacemakers for Jesus in the Middle East!

I speak your Name JESUS over this place because it is the Name that turns ALL evil away and the Name that will summon all that is good to their aid. Let us use His Name often. Evil spirits flee at the sound of Jesus so let us use it simply, naturally, forcefully – Jesus. Let us use it also to express Love, uttered aloud or in the silence of our hearts it will change an atmosphere of discord and hate to one of Love. It will raise the standard of every aspect of their lives. JESUS. There is no other Name under heaven whereby they can be saved. Amen

  2. Our Father in Heaven Holy is Your Name, Your Kingdom come and Your Will be done in Derna in Libya as in heaven. Give everyone there today their daily needs, forgive their sins as they learn to forgive those who have sinned against them. Lead them away from the temptations of pride, conceit and the pursuit of power and control.

Amen

  3. Father,
    So often we are “proud” and like to boast. Usually it is pride of ourselves or a family member, but You ask us to not boast or be full of pride about these people or ourselves. Let us Boast in You, in Jesus and in the power of Your Holy Spirit and we pray that for the people of Derna that they would have visions and learn humility and Your ways. Turn them to Jesus, the Savior of the World. And draw those who have been sent to fight for the cause of evil to turn to You and ask Your forgiveness.
    In Jesus’ Name,
    Amen

  4. Dear Father, more confusion, more reports of tragedies and plots and fighting and killing. If it’s not specifically in Derna then it’s just because you’re protecting that city. There may be a lull there; I don’t know. Please take this time to speak to the residents and show them the truth of Jesus. Open their hearts, Lord. I pray again, please make this town a sender of Christian evangelists, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  5. Dear Father, thank you for time, and thank you that you control it. Our times are in your hands; you are the Master of the entire universe and beyond. Even though I don’t know what’s been going on in the world for the past several days, you know, and you’re not rattled or powerless. So I praise you for isis members who will come to Jesus today, because you love each and every on of them. Bless them and make them powerful witnesses to the truth of Jesus. Change them totally, in every aspect of their lives. We give you praise and honor and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  6. Dear Father, I have more questions today, all of them a variation of Psalm 73. So I just pray this psalm to you. I declare that you are the Sovereign Lord. Regardless of the seeming isis victories in mosul and other cities in Iraq, regardless of the history and reputation of Derna or any other islamic stronghold, you win. You will defeat all of these demonic forces here because they have already been defeated in the heavenlies. Thank you for those you will save today, Lord. Please may we hear about some of them so your people will be encouraged. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

  7. Father, Thank you for the many reports in Christian media of Muslims being apprehended by Jesus and who are turning to Jesus for salvation. Please multiply those salvation exponentially. Please strike and crush the strongholds of Islam and false religion and resistance to Your Truth and Your Will. Please set all those captives free. I pray that reports of vast numbers of salvation will be reported even in secular media. Please plunder the ranks of the lost and swell the army of Christ. Thank you, Father, that you live us and will save us. In the Name of Our precious Saviour and Lord, Jesus. Amen

  8. Dear Father, I pray for your divine perspective today. Let us see things the way you see them. I think you see desperate deceived people trapped in islam, and I believe the reports that so many of them are seeing Jesus in dreams and visions. You win, Lord! So we will keep praying and believing that these prayers are effective. We pray for more truth to be revealed to all muslims and that you will continue to draw them to Jesus according to John 6:44. We pray for those who come to Jesus to be discipled and to be bold to lead others to Christ. Let Derna be known for evangelism for Christ, we pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  9. Dear Father, things can change so quickly. You said you will act in the twinkling of an eye, and we will all be changed. We need you. We are looking to see what you will do today. There are reports of revival breaking out. Could you please do that in Derna, and spread the saving knowledge of Jesus throughout the Middle East? We need you now, Lord. Please may we hear a good report about muslims coming to Jesus today? We give you praise as we wait expectantly. Thank you for what you will do, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  10. Dear Father, nothing but the blood of Jesus can save us or anyone else. As isis members gloat about their “victories” in Brussels, show them their own end. All the blood they shed, including their own, will only bring them to hell. Break through their blindness and arrogance, please. Lord, you are the One we look to for deliverance. You are the one who is meek and humble. Draw enslaved people–whether muslims or Europeans who have made you irrelevant, or Americams who try to ignore you, or any other people who don’t acknowledge your Lordship. Do whatever you have to do to bring people to Jesus so they can be saved eternally. Thank you for those you will save today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  11. Father You know the people of Derna in Libya, I do not know them. But You made all the people, all the inhabitants and You see the fight that there is in Derna for the souls of this people. You see that they are deceived by extremism, You see what is going on. You see how they are being used not out of love but out of the vieuwpoint of destruction that comes from the evil one. He wants to destroy Your people Thanks be to Your Name that You have already conquered by the blood of Your Son. Open their eyes Lord for the Only One that can bring them real peace and Your name to boast in. Show them Your truth Father. In the name of Yoyr Son Jesus Christ.

  12. Dear Father, we bless you today with all that is within us. We don’t forget all your benefits. You are the source and you are love. Thank you, Lord. Amid all the carnage and confusion in the Middle East today please show yourself strong and loving. Please be irresistible to each person old or young, walking in the lies and chains of islam– or communism or atheism or any other Godless “ism.” We look to you today, great and loving King of kings. Thank you for what you will do today to advance your coming Kingdom, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  13. Heavenly Father, thank you for the example set to us by Jesus Christ in ‘making himself nothing’. We pray for the members of ISIS for whom pride is important. Lord show them the true value of humility that they may see your glory.
    Amen
