PRAYING FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH
 
 

Overview:

Egypt has the fastest-growing population in the Middle East and also the largest Christian population among majority-Arab nations. It remains a base for Christian activity throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Many well-established evangelical churches and parachurch ministries in Egypt are working to reach both cultural Christians and Muslims with the gospel. Several of these groups also send their own Egyptian missionaries throughout the region. While overt Christian activity results in persecution, church growth and the establishment of Egypt as a regional base of missionary activity are encouraging developments.

 

Major Religion:

87 percent of Egyptians are Sunni Muslims. 13 percent are Christians, including 4 percent who are evangelical Christians.

 

Persecutor:

Various Islamic extremist groups operate in Egypt, including the Muslim Brotherhood and the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS).

 
 

What It Means To Follow Christ In Egypt:

Christians who are outspoken about their faith are often beaten or imprisoned. When Christians are attacked or kidnapped by Muslims, the government rarely provides protection or assistance. Christian converts from Islam face the most problems, including being expelled from their families, being divorced by their Muslim spouses, losing their children and losing their jobs. Additionally, because their government-issued identity cards identify them as Muslim, it is difficult for them to attend church, to marry, to register their children in school, to get a job or to emigrate elsewhere. Christians charged with apostasy or proselytizing Muslims are generally imprisoned for a week or two, with a few notable exceptions.

 

Access To Bibles:

Bibles are readily available at Bible societies, churches and bookstores in a variety of formats, translations and languages. However, not all Egyptian Christians can afford a Bible, and persecution and high illiteracy rates make Bible distribution an ongoing challenge.           Give Bibles

 

Voice Of the Martyrs Work:

VOM responds to widespread persecution needs, provides Bibles and Christian literature, distributes assistance, and trains pastors and other leaders.
 
 
 

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for the encouragement and growth of those who receive Bibles throughout the country.
  • Pray hat Egyptian believers will forgive and bless their persecutors.
  • Pray for Ali, whose father tried to kill him when he became a believer through a satellite TV program.
  • Pray for Kadisha, whose family tortured her for her faith. She escaped and is now in hiding.
  • Pray for Wadia and her son, who are in hiding after suffering persecution from family members.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Verse of the Day

“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”” — John 3:20-21 Listen to chapter . Powered by BibleGateway.com.
