Prayer is the heartbeat and the heritage of the Egyptian church. The Stephen’s Children team is challenged to depend on God through prayer every day. Only by prayer and the working of God’s Holy Spirit can our mission be fulfilled. We invite you to join us.


If you want to support the mission of Stephen’s Children and are willing to make a significant commitment in prayer, please inquire about joining our team of prayer partners. We will support you with resources to pray fervently. In return, we will ask you to spend regular time in prayer for Stephen’s Children.

Whether or not you can commit to joining as a prayer partner, our team would be blessed if you could pray for Stephen’s Children right now. If you would like your prayer shared with the SC team in Egypt, simply write it out in the field below. Your name will not be shared, but we would like to share your location with the team. In unity with our brothers and sisters in the Egypt, please consider offering your prayer “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God.” If you will commit to pray for Stephen’s Children, we know that our needs will be abundantly supplied as we carry out our mission for the glory of God and for the good of the children.
