40 Days Of Prayer To Answer The Cry

 

HOLY WEEK: DAY 3

 

Yesterday we focused on Jesus' words of calling: "I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit." These words, set alongside our Bible verse for today, make for sobering reading in the aftermath of the bombings in Cairo on Palm Sunday just a few days ago.

 

"Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will." Mark 14:36

 

Our SAT-7 office in Egypt said: "Our hearts are crushed with pain because of these horrifying terrorist crimes at St George Coptic Orthodox Church in Tanta and St Mark's Cathedral in Alexandria. We lift up our eyes to the living God asking for consolation for all the families of the martyrs and healing for all the injured."

 

SAT-7 production crews visited both churches and spoke with those reeling from the shocking events. On Monday it broadcast a special programme giving voice to the grieving and the shocked witnesses of Sunday’s events. It also spoke with representatives of Egypt’s Orthodox, Evangelical and Catholic Christian communities to express the unity of the Church as it "weeps with those who suffer".

 

PRAY: for all those grieving in Egypt, Sweden, London and other locations following recent attacks. Please uphold particularly the Christians of Egypt at this time, that they would be strong in their faith and calling and be able to pray: "everything is possible for you."
