Hala’ib Triangle

March 18, 2010

The Hala’ib Triangle is the northeast corner of Sudan. The long disputed sovereignty of the land, between Egypt and Sudan, has intensified with the discovery of oil. In October 2009 the Electoral Commission that prepared a comprehensive plan for Sudan’s general elections in April 2010 declared that Hala’ib was one of the Red Sea State electoral districts and that its people should exercise their constitutional rights and register in order to participate in the general elections. Voter registration did not take place in the Hala’ib Triangle area because the team from the Sudanese election commission was refused entry by Egyptian authorities.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Ephesians 1:3

Sovereign Lord of all the earth,
Sudan is Your field. As intercessors, we labor where You call. Ruth the Moabite gleaned in the corners and along the edges of the barley field, and You released Your spiritual blessings upon her and her seed.
We cry out for Your purposes to come to pass in the northeast corner of Sudan, and we release Your spiritual blessings over the Hala’ib Triangle. Do not despise this small beginning. Amen.
Zechariah 4:10, Ephesians 1:3, 1 Corinthians 3:9

Lent Prayers: Leave us Not in the Bondage of Any Sinful Inclination

March 18, 2010

Write deeply upon our minds, O Lord God, the lesson of thy holy Word, that only the pure in heart can see thee. Leave us not in the bondage of any sinful inclination. May we neither deceive ourselves with the thought that we have no sin, nor acquiesce idly in aught of which our conscience accuses us. Strengthen us by thy Holy Spirit to fight the good fight of faith, and grant that no day may pass without its victory; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
