Cairo, which in Arabic translates, “The Victorious”, is the capital of Egypt and the most populated metropolitan area in Africa. Cairo is a sprawling, ancient city that lies along the banks of the Nile, and is the home of many world heritage sites, historic figures, peoples, and languages.
Roughly 10% of all Egyptians identify as Coptic Christian, though religious intolerance from the Muslim majority and religious baggage holds the existing branch back from advancement. Egypt is also home to 1.7 million orphaned children, most of whom roam the streets of Cairo resorting to begging or petty theft to survive.
These challenges provide an incredible opportunity for the network of Jesus followers in the victorious city to adopt a generation and raise an army of more than conquerors.
Pray for boldness and courage over the underground house churches as they send teams to the 31 languages spoken in this city, especially to the Egyptian Arabs, Saidi Arabs, and the Libyan Arabs.
Pray for the SURGE teams as they risk everything to plant churches; they need courage, wisdom, and supernatural protection
Pray for unity among the church, and boldness for Christians from traditional and Orthodox backgrounds in sharing the Good News.
Pray for the Kingdom of God to penetrate universities, coffee shops, homes, and factories.
