Egypt

Pray for those in Egypt who try to find safe places for those who have to flee their families after coming to Christ.


Egypt

Please pray that God will touch the hearts of all those in Egypt who are persecuting family members because they have turned to Christ. Ask Him to prompt them to explore Christianity for themselves.


Egypt

Ask God to strengthen Christians from a Muslim background in Egypt. Pray for a woman whose brother and uncle beat her severely to try to force her to return to Islam. So far, she has stood firm.


Egypt

Our partners are working with women in Upper Egypt to help set up micro-enterprise projects – particularly widows and those who have fled their villages. Ask God to prosper them as they begin to generate an income for their family.


Egypt

One aspect of our partners’ work in Egypt is supporting children who have been displaced and who are often traumatised and afraid. Pray that God will be their ‘refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble’ (Psalm 46:1).


Egypt

Often the discrimination against families such as Mary’s in Upper Egypt is targeted at their children, who can suffer abuse and rejection at school. Pray that Christian children in this situation will become resolute in their faith.


Egypt

The family of ‘Mary’ is just one of an increasing number in Upper Egypt who were forced to flee their homes because of opposition to Christians locally. Pray that her family – and others like them – will settle into their new village quickly and trust God for their future.
