Egypt Prayer Day - Saturday 12 November 2011

Letter from His Grace Bishop Angaelos

Friday 21 October, 2O11

Your Graces, Revd Fathers, dear Sisters and Brothers, 

Grace and peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ. These last ten months have been filled with excitement, turbulence and tragedy in and for Egypt. This is a formative stage in Egypt's contemporary history, and a time where the country and its people attempt to transition from one era to another.

Egypt is now in need of our support; the government and her people are in need of divine guidance and the wisdom that can only come from God. Over these past months, and especially in these last two
weeks, we have seen the destruction, and even death, that can come about when there is a confused transition that does not encompass a spirit of inclusion and cohesiveness, and a vision that looks to a more equitable and less discriminatory existence.

For this reason we are gathering together on Saturday 12 November, 2011 from 2pm to 4pm, in partnership with our friends from Christian Solidarity Worldwide, to pray together for Egypt, her leadership, her government, her army, and particularly for her people, that as the proposed elections approach, and as these people try to redefine their future, God's guiding hand will be there in their midst and His comforting Spirit of peace will overshadow them.

I ask you to join me on that day in the Cathedral of Saint George to raise all of this in our prayers, as well as remember those who have lost their lives, have been injured, or have lost loved ones. The address is:
Shephalbury Manor, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Hertfordshire SG2 8NP, United Kingdom

Please accept my apologies for the lateness of this invitation but our attention has been focussed on the Maspero demonstration and the resulting death and destruction that has touched our community both here and in Egypt.
I look forward to seeing and praying with you, and leave you in the care of our gracious Lord.
