Prayer, Plain and Simple


EgyptProtesters2_20110210_181542.jpgThe streets of Cairo are roaring with protest after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced that he has ceded authority to his Vice President, Omar Suleiman but will not step down from the title of President until elections next September.

Earlier in the day reports had been leaked that Mubarak would resign immediately and turn the government over to a committee of military leaders. This did not happen and the more conservative move ensures that the Mubarak regime will retain control during the reform process. It also leaves Egypt’s military leaders in an uncertain position of their authority.

“God, once again, we pray for order and clarity and civility in Egypt!”
