Read Egyptian Christians in the Furnace Fire! at Open Doors USA.
How we weep over the plight of Your people in Egypt, people with whom we share faith, people whose once-peaceful lives have been turned into daily tragedy. We pray Your peace to reign over them in the midst of chaos. We pray that You will fill them to overflowing with Your compassion and mercy that it might flow out into the lives of their neighbors, even the lives of their enemies. We pray that You will grant them wisdom, discernment and protection as they stand boldly proclaiming Christ in the enemy camp. Give them times of sweet rest as the war rages around them, that they might persevere to the end. And we call on You to quickly bring peace to Egypt. In the name of Jesus our only hope in times of trouble,
