CAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)-- Last week more than 70,000 prayed all night in Cario, but they weren't Muslims.

The largest Christian event in Egypt for more than a millenium was held at St. Simeon the Tanner Coptic Orthodox Church in Mokattam, Cairo's largest "garbage city". An Egyptian Christian leader called it the beginning of a revival, even though there was no promotion for, or media coverage of the all-night event.

Back in September 2009, during a prayer meeting in Egypt, the event's organizer prophesized that President Mubarak would receive "no grace" in 2011; the Spirit further revealed that there would be bloodshed, persecution and the destruction of churches, but if God's people would hear His voice and repent, then He would hear their prayers.

Fast forward to Oct. 9, 2011, when many Coptic Christians were killed in Cairo; in response, Christian leaders met for 3 days of prayer, after which they announced their intention of an all-night prayer event for all of Egypt.
