Prayer for Christianity in Egypt

On Mar 24, 2016 04:27 PM EDT


Answer to Prayer

Large-scale Bible distribution and creative ways to maintain a public presence make The Bible Society a highly strategic ministry. Scripture is more accessible than ever, especially to young people, and Christians and the Christian message have greater exposure in the media.

 

Challenges to Prayer

Egypt is arguably the intellectual centre of Sunni Islam, and Islamist groups such as The Brotherhood have grown greatly as they push for a more Islamic state. Their slogan (now "illegal"), "Islam is the solution", will never actually be tested unless they attain power. The stridency and harshness of some of their teachings and actions cause many to question this, yet they are also generous providers of social welfare. Pray that their leaders, their members and those disillusioned with conflict might discover the Light of the World.
