The custodial death of former President Mohamed Morsi has raised serious questions among human rights organizations and among several western governments. In view of this tragic development, the Egyptian government, in an effort to save face, has greenlit the legalization of 127 congregations that were previously operating without a government permit in the latest wave of recent church approvals.

Pray for this exercise speed up and cover all 3000 Churches throughout Egypt (The Bible, Hebrews 11:1).

Since President Shavkat Mirziyoev came to power he has been steadily introducing reforms. For the first time in decades, the US has removed Uzbekistan from its list of worst religious tolerance. More than 1,500 religious prisoners have been released and 16,000 people blacklisted because of religious reasons have now been allowed to travel again. In 2018 the first church in eight years was officially registered. Bless the government for its endeavors to reform.

Pray it will increase and also deepen its reforms.
Pray that more churches will be successfully registered, evidence of a deeper, truer change, not just lip service (The Bible, Joel 2:13).
