On Day Two, the 30 Days of Prayer guide highlights Egypt. “Generosity is the foundation of Egyptian hospitality… and the demands during Ramadan are even greater… With a struggling economy affecting all social classes, issues such as education, employment and income are growing concerns for families.”
- 1 John 3:1 says that God has lavished His love upon us. Pray for the people of Egypt to experience the lavish love of God.
- Relationships between Christians and Muslims in Egypt can be tense. Pray for the culture of hospitality in both to break down barriers and lead to real friendship and witness.
- Pray that young people in Egypt will influence the nation in other important matters, such as increased religious freedom.
