The Church of Egypt Prays for Egypt

My dear sisters and brothers,

Grace and peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ.

Over the past few weeks there has been a level of uncertainty and instability connected with Egypt and its future, but we have seen millions cling to God, confident in His love and promises, both for the land and its people. At the same time, we see this is a moment for the celebration of a new era in Egypt; we are thankful for God’s blessing, and excited about the changes and His work through them. We pray for our Lord to provide wisdom, direction and guidance now as we enter a new phase of change, that He may oversee the provision of unity, equality, prosperity, safety, joy and peace for all. Indeed it is time to remember and be thankful for His loving message in the Book of Isaiah “Blessed is Egypt, My people...”

I invite you to join me and hundreds of other Egyptians for a day on which "The Church of Egypt Pray for Egypt Day" at the Coptic Orthodox Church Centre on Saturday 5th March from 10.30am to 4.30pm. This will be the day that Egyptian Christians in the United Kingdom from various denominations come together with one heart to pray together for Egypt, joined by members of the wider Egyptian community.

We will share in both Liturgical and non-Liturgical prayer and worship. Lunch will be provided, and the day will be a wonderful opportunity to gather in fellowship.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at Events@CopticCentre.com

I look forward to seeing you on the day, and leave you in the love and care of our gracious Lord.
