The Most Rev Dr Mouneer sends his greetings from Egypt and asks us to join with him in praying for the nation in the wake of disturbances in Cairo over the weekend.

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

I do request your urgent prayers as the situation here in Cairo is very inflamed. Many Christians demonstrated after the incident of the burning of a church building in Mari Nab near Aswan (Egypt). The demonstrations started peacefully as the people were requesting that investigations for the incidents of burning and demolishing churches would be completed and the new law for building churches, that was promised four months ago, would be passed.

This evening it turned to be very violent between demonstrators and the military. More than 20 people were killed and more than 100 were injured.

…I would appreciate your prayers for our beloved country.

Thank you for your prayers.

+Mouneer

Please join with us in praying for Egypt and it’s leaders at this crucial time – the country is scheduled to hold parliamentary elections at the end of this November.

Please also pray particularly for the Most Rev Dr Mouneer as he attends meetings with religious and political leaders to discuss a way out of this difficult situation.
