International Prayer Hour
"Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly. And he said:
“I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
And He answered me.
Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice." (Jonah 2:1-2)
When trials and troubles strike, the Church knows no greater weapon than prayer. Jesus said, "Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." What about two or three thousand? Two or three million?
In recent days, more than 50 Coptic Churches were burned to the ground in Egypt. Christian shops and houses have been attacked, looted and destroyed. Egyptians - both Christians and Muslim - are dying by the hundreds. As civil unrest continues to blaze, the body count is getting higher every day.
On Monday 26th August, We invite you to take part in an International Hour of Prayer for the peace and safety of Egypt. Between the hours of 8-9pm local time Copts all over the world will come together and pray. We will pray for our brothers and sisters who are suffering in Egypt, and for those who are causing them to suffer. In love and humility, we will pray for peace, to the King of Peace.
"Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer ..." (Rom 12:12)
