Egypt is Africa’s third most populous nation after Nigeria and Ethiopia. About half of the population live in the cities with the remainder clustered around the river Nile. Egypt has a significant influence culturally, politically and militarily in the Middle East, North Africa and on the whole Muslim world.
90% Islamic – mainly Sunni 9% Coptic Christian 1% Christian
1 February 2011, Mubarak resigned and fled Cairo. Mohamed Morsi was elected president on 24 June 2012. The new government was dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. On 3 July 2013, the military removed Morsi from power in a coup d'état and installed an interim government.
Pray that the political turmoil in Egypt will not spiral into a bloody civil war. Pray for restraint on all especially for hardline Muslims who are enraged at the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood from power. Pray for Christians who are an easy target for angry Muslim groups. Pray for the growth of the evangelical church in Egypt and that Egyptian evangelicals will be emboldened to share their faith. Pray for the Reformed community in Egypt it is not only the largest Bible-believing community in the entire Mediterranean region, but also plays an active role in evangelism, church planting and teaching throughout the Arabic speaking world. He will send Egypt a Saviour and a Mighty One and He will deliver them. Then the Lord will be known to Egypt and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day. (Isaiah 19:20)
