Release International Prayer Shields, Egypt


The husbands of the women supported by the Strength to Stand groups have seen the change in their wives and asked church leaders to set up similar support groups for them. Thank God that this is strengthening the church in Egypt.


Thank God that He is building up the faith of the women supported by Strength to Stand groups in Egypt. Many face ongoing sexual abuse as well as poverty and oppression.


Ask God to protect leaders of the Strength to Stand groups in Egypt who go out to visit women in their homes. Two of them were recently threatened with kidnap.


Pray for the Strength to Stand groups that Release International supports in Egypt. Despite Covid restrictions, they have continued to visit the homes of women they support and have maintained regular contact through WhatsApp.


Thank God that, through the generosity of Release International supporters, our partners in Egypt have been able to distribute food packages to families who have lost their income through the pandemic.


Christians in Egypt, who were already among the nation’s poorest, have been hit hard by the economic impact of Covid, particularly those who live in rural areas of Upper Egypt. Ask God to provide for their needs.


The Nile Christian Bookshop in Cairo is run by a Release International partner. Pray that it will have a great impact on the thousands who walk past it each day.
