Prayers for those in Egypt

This evening at our Mother House, we will be offering a Trisagion Prayer Service for those affected by the violence in Egypt.  Below is the most up to date list of churches that have been burned, attacked, or threatened that I have been able to put together from various resources around the internet.  Each of these we will pray for by name this evening.  While we cannot be there in person to help protect, it is our hope that those in Egpyt affected by this violence can draw stength and courage from knowing that their plight does not go unheard and that their Christian brothers and sisters across the globe are with them in prayer.

For those that cannot be with us in person, I ask that you set aside time to pray for these churches and all those affected by the recent unrest in Egypt.

Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One,
Have mercy upon us.

Let us pray for those who lead the faith:

Egypt’s Grand Imam, Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb

Coptic Pope, Tawaros II

Coptic Catholic Patriarch Ibrahim Isaac Sidrak

Anglican Bishop Mouneer Anis
