Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
Egyptian Christian girls and young women are frequently kidnapped by Muslims, raped, and often forced to convert to Islam. Many of the victims vanish and are never seen again. Some manage to escape or are rescued, but their lives are permanently blighted in a society that highly values virginity. Some kidnappings are carefully planned, on the orders of Islamist consortiums who are reported to pay the kidnappers as much as £2,300 ($3,000: €2,700) per girl. Pray to “the God who sees” (Genesis 16:13) for the protection of our sisters in Egypt. Pray for healing – emotional, mental and physical – for those who have been through this ordeal, and above all pray for strength, hope and faith for those still captive.
