Another murderous attack on Copts in Cairo

A gunman opened fire on worshipers and Egyptian security forces stationed outside a Coptic church in a Cairo suburb on Friday, killing at least seven people. Further details still coming in, apparently.

Prayers for the Coptic Christians of Egypt and for the killed and injured and for those
trying to protect them who are also being targeted.


I’ll also be offering prayer for our Coptic brothers & sisters.

Sad how we’re remembering all these martyrs from hundreds of years ago this week, like St Stephen & Thomas Becket, while in this very day Christians are still being martyred in the Middle East.


There was an earlier attack on a church outside of Cairo. That time they just destroyed the building.
