Friday Prayers for Egypt

God,

As people observe their first full week of Ramadan, honor their fasting.

God, sometimes prayers are hard. What can be asked that has not been asked before?  God, bring good to Egypt. Bring freedom and justice. Restore hope. May more and more turn their hope to you, even as they rightly strive, in whatever direction. Protect Egypt from harm. May this nation know your grace, your love, and may this be lived out among the people. There is so much good here, God. Preserve and multiply it.

Where there is sin, God, forgive and redeem it. Where there is division, heal it. Teach Egypt your way, God, and help her to walk in it. Make this nation great, and an example to all. You have given so many blessings so far. May people, this month especially, reflect and give thanks.

Amen.
