The prayer rally

On August 24, dozens of people representing several evangelical churches in Rome gathered to pray for peace in the country and for protection for the Christian minority. Recent reports from Egypt were read, together with biblical passages assuring that God is in control and cares for his people. A letter to the Ambassador was signed by the participants expressing concern for the dangerous situation in which the Christians find themselves and the hope that action will be taken to secure protection and religious freedom for all.
