Urgent request: Pastors and Christians in Egypt

Dear Friends,

Greetings on behalf of Dr. Ramesh Richard. You have no doubt heard of the violence taking place in Egypt, a country in which RREACH has been blessed to minister over the years. We have received requests from some of the pastors there, which are listed below.

Please join Dr. Richard, the RREACH board and the RREACH staff as we pray for Egyptian pastors and Christians – including those who have touched and been touched by RREACH (550 pastors from 19 denominations at a pastors conference a few years ago and 18 young, lead pastors at GPA Egypt last year.)

The situation: 

Amidst protests by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, churches and Christian businesses and homes are under attack in multiple cities in Egypt. Protestors are throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at churches, and there are reports that Christians’ homes have been burned.

The police and army are trying to maintain safety for all people and to disperse the protestors peacefully. In some areas these protests have been going on for up to six weeks, blocking roads and causing a great amount of suffering for people in those neighborhoods and those who commute through those neighborhoods.

Please pray: 

That the situation will calm down and violence would cease

For wisdom for the police and army

For the safety of all churches and congregations

For strength and protection for Christians in Egypt, especially for pastors there

For His glory,
Edie Ross
RREACH Prayer Coordinator
