A Call to Prayer for Egypt

BY ccrossley | 2 February 2011 |

These are, indeed, hard trying moments in the history of the churches of the Middle East in general, especially to the churches in Egypt these days, as they face the “unknown” – a word used by all who I could contact (after strenuous attempts) expressing their fears and worries about the situation; yet affirming their Faith that God is the Lord of history, the portion and cup of their inheritance, maintaining their lot (Ps16.5). This is our apostolic faith – we who live in areas of turmoil and uncertainty.

Churches of the Middle East have undergone all manifestations of trials during their history, as of a blazing furnace, and come stronger than ever, testifying to the presence of that “whose form is like the Son of God” (Dan3.25) amongst and with them. Right now we are very worried about the flock of Christ, and the people, in Egypt. We feel impotent, being aware that they have been subject to these kinds of fears and uncertainties for decades, without any practical steps from the Free World – so called by many “the Christian World”!
