Friday Prayers for Egypt: Internal Organs

Flag Cross Quran

God,

Inflation hit a high of 20 percent this month. Egyptians are suffering as the state seeks to stop years of internal bleeding.

But the response of some only does more damage – to themselves and the country. Egypt this week arrested a ring of doctors involved in the illegal trafficking of organs, attached even to prominent hospitals and medical schools.

Poverty has driven some to desperation. Greed has driven others to exploit them.

God, thank you for exposing this circle, and may it lead to finding others. Protect the integrity of the medical profession, upon which so much depends.

But protect also the integrity of the citizen, to live within a healthy means. Too many are adversely affected by the economy, no matter how necessary the reforms.

And in this, God, protect the integrity of the state. Give wisdom to balance the needs of the budget with the needs of the poor and middle class. May none grow rich on the sufferings of others.

In the end, God—and may it be soon—ensure these days strengthen the organs of Egypt. A society free from corruption. An economy free for enterprise.

And a people free to develop their nation. God, gird the loins of Egypt; bring her to peace and prosperity.

Amen.

One thought on “Friday Prayers for Egypt: Internal Organs

  1. Well put Jayson and presumably befor the news from Giza broke, so hope you don’t mind if I ask for more prayers .
    Please pray for the family, friends and colleagues of those killed and injured. May they not hate, also pray for the perpetrators. May they see the futility of their actions, and really find God,
    May the British and American governments and the BBC with other media companies wake up to the fact that the Muslim brotherhood, are terrorists, and kick them and their headquarters out of London.
    Please to continue to pray for this land favoured by God and help it come back to the great company it was in years past. Between the terrorists and overseas media the country is losing the opportunity to get back on its feet, as so many will not visit.
