Coptic Christians Praying for Egypt's Believers

Ad Feedback

A Coptic Christian leader in the United States and his flock are praying for fellow believers in Egypt.

Bishop David of the Coptic Christian Association of North America said he's hopeful Mohammed Morsi will allow Christians to worship freely.

Most Copts supported the secular candidate out of concern that the Muslim Brotherhood will institute strict Islamic law.

In some nations where Sharia law is practiced, Christians face harsh persecution and anyone who leaves Islam to follow Christ can be put to death.
    
Bishop David said Copts believe that rulers are ultimately appointed by God.
