Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Blessing Christians in Egypt

Christians in Egypt are living in heighted fear of persecution, and political change may not be a change for the better.  Christian demonstrators have been praying peacefully with Muslims in Tahrir Square in Cairo. But as turmoil in the streets leads to upheaval in the government, it’s clear that Egypt’s Christians – 10 percent of the population – will likely be marginalized by a new regime even less tolerate than President Hosni Mubarak has been.

A similar fate befell Christians in Iraq following regime change. Sadam Hussein was fairly tolerant of the Christian minority. But the new government has covertly and even overtly endorsed hostility against Christians. Thousands have fled Iraq as a result. As turmoil now spreads in Egypt and potentially to the rest of the Muslim world, Christians fear for their security.

“God, bless Christians in Egypt and across the Muslim world. Bless Christian families. Keep them safe and strong and confident in your promises to be with them. Guide Christians to make prudent and shrewd decisions in this time of turmoil. Turn away the hand of violence from them. Give them restraint from lashing out foolishly against fear. Jesus, keep your Church, your Bride in Egypt and across Middle East secure and whole and safe from harm.”

    This is so one-sided. You should be praying for the freedom from a dictator that Christians and Muslims are working for. And you should pray for the safety of everyone. Have you no morality?
