Pray for the Egyptian People

For thirty years the United States backed a corrupt and totalitarian regime disguised as a democracy in Egypt. Many people were imprisoned and many people were given unearned positions of authority because of loyalty to that regime.. All of this was because Mubarak was an “ally” of America. Human rights and the democracy America so often voices were sacrificed when “national interests” were at stake.

When will believers learn that the American government, or any government for that matter, is not the way of Jesus? Let us pray that the quickly unfolding circumstances in Egypt will provide a platform for the gospel, and that the Christian church in Egypt will not only be protected, but will be given the grace of boldness for Jesus. The Egyptian people are loved by God and they need Jesus.
