Moammar Gadhafi's death may also bring new hope to the Christian community in Libya.

Carl Moeller, president of Open Doors USA, says there is a great spiritual hunger in the north African country.

The group monitors religious persecution around the world.

Moeller said Christian foreign workers fled the country when the civil war began and Libyan Christians with Muslim backgrounds have tried to keep a low profile.

He added that Christian workers in Libya have distributed more Bibles in the last nine months than in the previous nine years.

Moeller's urging Christians around the world to pray for believers in Libya.

It's unclear if the new Libyan new government will allow religious freedoms or impose Islamic law.
