Video of Egypt’s All Night Prayer Gathering

I was one of the only foreigners at this month’s historic all night prayer gathering in Cario’s cave church complex. Heres some shaky video that I took. There is some English translation in real time, thanks to my friend Samy who accompanied us. Sound is not great. Just listen harder. I should mention that this is filmed inside one of 7 cave cathedrals and does not show the overflow crowds outside.

In the video you will see prayer for repentance, communal prayer, singing and some serious flag waving. Enjoy. For a better video, go here.
