Prayer for Egypt Christians

All around the world Christians are being persecuted and terrorized. Many of us live in a nation where Christianity is a person’s choice and we do not have to fight for it, or hide to practice it. We are truly blessed, and must not take that for granted. We must train our children that millions of others are not so fortunate; we have brothers and sisters in Christ around the globe who die each day just for wanting to serve God. In your prayer time, make an effort to pray for these areas of the world. The following is an example.

Dearest friends,

Due to the very tragic events which happened last night sunday 9th of october in Cairo (24 christians have been killed and over 200 people injured during demonstrations which started peacefully), the pope Shenouda made a call of prayer to all coptic christians around the world starting from tomorrow morning tuesday the 11th of october. His call is to encourage anyone to pray and fast during 3 days for our country.

With this message we would like to kindly ask you to join us, according to your possibilities and capacities, during the 3 days of fasting and prayers for our land which needs so much your intercession. Let’s stand with our brothers and sisters who are passing by a terrible tragedy, sorrow, fear and incredible challenges we have not seen or heard of since the revolution. Together, let’s cry to our heavenly Father so that the situation in our area may change and that the leadership may recognize the existence of the christians and the rights of 15 millions of christians in Egypt. In the media, in the social aspect, there is a total ignorance of the christians and their rights.

This afternoon, thousands of people were at the funerals which took place in the large cathedral in El Embassyia, Cairo. A great sadness and sorrow was on the entire assistance.

As we are writing, the army is threatening the christians who are demonstrating down town. Hundreds are already in prison.

Thank you for your precious intercession and receive our sincere blessings.
