Father, we come before you with heavy hearts for our brothers and sisters in Egypt who were killed in the shooting. We rejoice because we know they are with you, but we grieve the violence under which they died and we grieve for their families. Good Father, I pray that you would strengthen all Christians in Egypt and around the world where persecution takes place in any form. I pray that the global Church would stand firm with each other and stand firm in your grace. Thank you, Father.
