urgent prayer request for Christians in Egypt

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you may have already heard, a deadly explosion in front of the Saints Coptic Orthodox Church in Alexandria killed 21 and injured 80 worshipers as they exit the Church after New Year's Eve Prayers. The perpetrators are still unknown; however, Alexandria’s Governor blamed al-Qaida for the attack. Christians in Egypt has been suffering persecutions at the hands of radical Muslims for many years and this attack is the latest of many attacks that targeted Christians and churches in Egypt. Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7th and many churches have canceled Christmas celebrations this year.  The Church in Egypt and the Middle East is in great need of our prayers and we urge you as members in the body of Christ to remember those martyrs and their families in your prayers and also to pray for peace in Egypt and the Middle East.
