PRAYER REQUEST ALERT: Egypt – Pray for Naglaa el-Emam, Detained for Contempt of Islam

Naglaa el-Emam, a well-known human rights lawyer and Christian convert from Islam, was detained on Feb. 24 by State Security on charges of “insulting Islam” in Egypt. Following her conversion to Christianity in 2010, she was fired from her job and disowned by her Muslim family. The outspoken activist, who has shared her faith publicly, has been repeatedly harassed by government officials and slandered by Muslim extremist groups.
