Call to join together in prayer and fasting

The Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland
Calls all to join together in prayer and fasting
Wednesday 2-Friday 4 February, 2011

My dear friends,
Grace and peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ.

"When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place."
(Acts 2:1)

At this time our thoughts are with all those in Egypt: our families, friends, brothers and sisters, as well as the country with which many of us feel very deep connections. I would like for us all to join together in three days of fervent prayer and united fasting, with one accord, that God may grant stability to Egypt, asking: protection for the protestors, restraint for the army and police, wisdom for those in power, and peace and protection for the whole blessed land.

I leave you in the love and care of our gracious Lord.
