“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!

  1. Dear Father, you are the Almighty God and we give you praise for your excellent glory. We saw how you brought the highest civilization in today’s world to a total standstill with your snowstorm. Is there any doubt that you are in total control of everything? So we pray that isis members will humble themselves before Jesus today. Let them come and be saved before your judgment falls. We declare: Holy is the Lord Almighty who was and is and is to come. Let your Kingdom come and your will be done today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

He told Ben-Hadad, “He who is putting on his armor shouldn’t boast as if he were taking it off.” The people of Derna boast, but the battle is not over and you will have the final word.

Save them, Lord. Let Derna be known as the city that loves You lavishly. On Your Name we ask these things. Amen.

  9. Dear Father, your Word tells us about Nebuchadnezzar and the arrogance he displayed; and how you humbled him, causing him to eat grass like an ox. Eventually he wised up and exalted you. He said, “He does what He wishes with the army of heaven and with those living on earth. No one can hold back His hand or ask Him, ‘What are you doing?’ ”
    That’s true, Lord. Please do that for isis and all those trapped in islam. Bring down their pride and bring them to the feet of Jesus, giving him praise and worship. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  10. Dear Father, your ways are perfect. We cry holy, holy, holy. We thank you that your mercies are new morning by morning. We encourage ourselves in you as David did. Please let your people of the Cross do the same today. Bless them. Please bring thousands of muslim refugees to Jesus–for real, not just as a way of getting asylum in Europe. Thank you for what you will do today in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  11. Dear Father, shine the Light of Your Son, Jesus Christ, into the spiritual darkness of this sin-weary land! Amen

  12. Dear Lord, you raise kings and government leaders and you cause them to fall. We pray for your touch on Derna. Raise leaders that long for a filling that comes only through your presence. In Jesus’ name.

  13. Oh Lord, I lift up Derna to You. Move among the people in this city. Speak to them in dreams and visions. Show them that You are the only way to eternal life. Raise up Christians. Turn Sauls into Pauls in this city.

  14. Agreeing with all that prayed. Shine your light on Derna. Should there be a faint cry from a Christian, Lord hear their prayer and save them. Save the city for the sake of the handful that love you and have faith in your Son Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name we pray.

  15. Dear Father, the whole earth was corrupted in Noah’s day, and it’s no better now, except for the presence of your Spirit in your people. Noah was able to see the difference between right and wrong; surely these people can see it? Please help them to make right choices–to choose Jesus, truth, love, peace. Please, God. Please help us all to make right choices, and to obey you as Noah did in the midst of the evil of his day. Thank you for your Holy Spirit whom you give to all who ask you. We give you praise and honor in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  16. Dear Father, Your Word says that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord raises up a banner against him. I pray that you would do that here. Please come, just as you did when Elisha was praying and you enabled his servant to see the chariots of fire in 2 Kings 6. Please move sovereignly to bring salvation, not only to Derna, but to all those entrapped in islam. We know you are working, even though we can’t see it at the moment. So we give you thanks and praise, in Jesus’ name. AMEN!

  17. Dear Father, we continue to hear of isis “victories” all over. The terror continues and they continue to boast. But you are the same God who answered Hezekiah’s prayer about Sennecharib. The Assyrians boasted that their gods were unstoppable too. Yet one of your angels wiped out 185,000 of their army, and Sennecharib himself. Please have mercy on your people, even though at this time we have no godly or righteous leadership. Please protect your people. Please cause those who have served the false god of islam to turn to you. Please let us fall into your hands, and not into the hands of the evil one. We pray in Jesus’ name, for your glory. Amen.

  18. Father,
    I struggle with pride. I know how deceptive it is. How is lulls you into it’s grasp. Father, as you have revealed this sin to me, reveal it to the people of Derna. Give them visions and dreams that disturb their sleep and break their hearts with the evil that pride has sewn in their lives and among their people.
    False piety is deceptive. True religion that You accept is care for the widow and the orphan – not to create widows and orphans! I ask this in humility, because I am a sinner in need of a savior, just like all the residents of Derna. Amen

  19. After the news today, even though I finished the 30 day prayer journey, am praying this prayer again. God hasn’t given up on them and we shouldn’t either. He is always faithful. Praying to have faith, even when we can’t see what He’s doing and don’t understand His ways that are higher than ours.

  20. Dear Father, we live near the town that sent out the most soldiers per capita on D-Day to fight for freedom, but these deluded people are fighting for that devilish religion and the destruction of your church and Israel. We appeal to your justice to stop them! We appeal to your mercy to save them. We appeal to you as Jehoshaphat did. We don’t know what to do, but our eyes are on you. Speak to the women in this town and all the places infested with those who terrorize people in the name of islam. Put your love in them so that they would not want or encourage their men to act like this. Please, Lord, help. Let us hear you say, “the battle is not yours, but God’s.” We pray this in Jesus’s name. Amen.
