Prayer Point

November 2018 prayer point: Egypt

On Friday 02 November armed terrorists killed at least seven Christians leaving St Samuel monastery, the same place 28 Christians were killed in another attack in May 2017.  The government does little to protect Christians and instead discriminates against them: though they make up ten per cent of Egypt's population, they are not considered equal citizens and face restrictive legislation. Converts to Christianity also face rejection and isolation from their communities because of their new faith.

Please pray

  • God will comfort the bereaved, the injured, and all who are fearful in Egypt today.
  • For healing for the injured.
  • For protection over our Egyptian brothers and sisters. For converts who are ousted from their homes & for Christians who are discriminated against.

Update: Pakistan

Give thanks for the Supreme Court’s ruling that Asaia Bibi should be released and that she will be able to rejoin her family in a place of safety after nine years apart.  Pray for the reform of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and the demise of radical Islam: that God would bring the leaders of Islamist groups to Christ.
