The main problem – for the terrorists – is that Egyptian Christians are publicly forgiving those who murdered their families since 2014.
This is unheard of, particularly in the Middle East where killings like this are remembered (and avenged) over generations. It is a problem for the terrorists because it is blowing the minds of millions of Egyptians and other people in the Middle East who watch these testimonies on the news. It is leading many to secretly (and sometimes not so secretly) consider the path of Jesus. This path is so clearly contrasted in its love and forgiveness with the path that those who are killing with hatred in their hearts.
Prayer Point :
- For God’s power and love to manifest in the lives and testimonies of the persecuted.
- For persecuters’ minds to open and hearts to be turned around that they will have supernatural encounter with the God who forgives.
- For believers in Egypt and the Middle East to remain strong in faith and trust despite physical and psychological abuse.
