Muslims Come to Jesus in Egypt

Bashir (pseudonym) is passionately excited about how God is working in Egypt. “God is doing something wonderful in our region and is restoring the inheritance of what God left for us many years ago,” he said, and the persecution they face is not deterring them. Bashir explains, "There was a wonderful Christian couple from a Muslim background living quietly in their home for five years until they were reported for not attending the mosque. They were beaten and taken to the police station, and accused of being infidels. The police then beat the believers badly again. A week later the police advised them to leave their house. We had to re-settle them in a safe location. However, all of these persecutions are not stopping Muslims from coming to the Lord.”
Prayer Points:
*Pray for the Muslim-background believers who experience severe opposition from their family and community when they decide to follow Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 10:32f)
*Pray for the Christians who were unable to bear the persecution and have denied Jesus; pray that they will receive God’s forgiveness, grace and mercy. (Matthew 26:41)
*Pray for the Christian leaders and their families in Egypt who risk their lives serving newly converted Muslim-background believers. (Philippians 1:4,5)
