As anti-government protests continue to escalate across Libya, the group Arab World Ministries is asking believers around the world to pray for Libya's small Christian community.
Dictator Moammar Gadahfi told the country he's ready to die a martyr's death after ruling Libya for 41 years.
Protestors have taken over major cities, but Gadhafi is hanging on in the capital of Tripoli.
Arab World Ministries says Libya's churches need a spirit of boldness in this chaotic time, and greater freedom to worship and evangelize.
Christians account for only 2.5 percent of Libya's 6.5 million residents.
The majority are Catholic and Orthodox, however there are a growing number of house churches.
Christians are forbidden to share their faith with Libyan citizens.
Many residents learn about Jesus through satellite television.
The Christian ministry Sat-7 reported its broadcast signal has been blocked by the Libyan government since protests began.
