PRAY FOR EGYPT
 
 
I call on You, my God, for You will answer me; turn Your ear to me and hear my prayer. — Psalm 17:6
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
Dear Phil,

The news and images out of Egypt today are devastating.

Coptic Christians on their way to a prayer meeting were ambushed aboard the bus and showered with gunfire. As of this writing, more than two dozen Christians have been killed. Children are among the dead.

Today was the first day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Christians in the region were already on high alert. Today’s attack will only deepen their concern.

The investigation is ongoing—the attack happened today—but Islamic extremists have been increasingly violent toward Christians in recent months. 

Please join us in prayer for the church in Egypt.

Learn more about the Open Doors ministry in Egypt and find out how you can pray and support our brothers and sisters facing persecution in North Africa and the Middle East.

You are such a vital partner—I knew you’d want to hear about this right away. Please consider a special onetime gift right away to help our broth...

In Christ,

Dr. David Curry

For them, the hope of staying alive for another day is indefinite due to their critical conditions.
