Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
The Christians of Koum al-Raheb, near Samalout, Egypt, had to hold a funeral service in the village streets in February because their church building remained sealed by the police. The church had been closed down on the very day it first opened for worship, 9 December 2018, because it was not officially licensed. The Egyptian government has put measures in place to license all church buildings, but progress is slow and many Muslims are implacably opposed to Christians having places of worship. Pray for the church licensing to progress quickly so that police have no reason to close church buildings. Pray also for more Egyptian Muslims to support the Christian minority, like those who gathered in the streets of Koum al-Raheb to mourn with the Christians during the funeral.
