An Egyptian Christian

Lift up in prayer Bishoy Boulous Armia, an Egyptian Christian journalist and convert from Islam, who was arrested on 4 December 2013 for airing a report on the persecution of Christians in Egypt. After spending a year in prison, he was released when his lawyer filed a complaint that Bishoy had not been set bail in accordance with the judicial code; nevertheless, the following day, Bishoy (whose former name was Mohammed Hegazy) was re-arrested and remains in prison for blasphemy charges filed against him 2009. At the time of writing, no trial date had been set for these accusations. Pray that the Lord will protect Bishoy and that the charges will be dropped.
