Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the grace we receive from You each day. Today, we pray for Muhammed Hegazy (Bishoy Armia Boulos), recently detained in Egypt for nothing more than practicing his belief and faith in You. We pray that You will sustain and protect Boulos. We pray that his high profile will lead to his swift release. We pray also for his wife and two children; they are believed to be abroad. We continue to pray each day that Egypt will become a nation where religious freedoms are enshrined in the constitution, upheld by officials and respected by Egyptian society at large.
In the name of Your Son, Jesus, we pray. Amen.
"...Boulos's friends believe his arrest was yet another attempt to persecute Egypt's 'best-known convert from Islam.' Boulos was the first Egyptian ever to file a legal suit to seek to change his religious identity on his ID card. As a result, he received death threats, forcing him into hiding. He had previously been arrested and tortured because of his conversion."
