The Fellowship of the Middle East Evangelical Churches is appealing to Disciples and other Global Ministries partners for prayer over the volatile situation that is occurring in Egypt. Over the last two weeks, thousands of Egyptians have demonstrated against the authoritative regime led by President Hosni Mubarak. The Fellowship of the Middle East Evangelical Churches is asking people to pray for the Egyptian people, their future, and especially for the church in Egypt.
Requests for prayers have also come from the Protestant Community of Egypt. Recently the member communions of the National Council of Churches, which includes Disciples, joined with Christians in the Coptic Orthodox Church in North America for a three-day period of prayer and fasting.
