O heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of Truth
who are in all places and fillest all things:
Treasury of good things and Giver of life:
Come and dwell in us and cleanse us from every stain,
and save our souls, O good One.

As the situation in Egypt worsens there will be hordes of impoverished but still fervent Islamic refugees fleeing the country. Their favorite destination for security and succor will be the lands formerly known as Christendom, not Muslim countries. Wonder if they will have the decency to drop their torches before they arrive.

Should read:

‘The U.S. backed Muslim Broterhood has cut a swath of violence and destruction across Egpyt’

The Egyptian army is doing what it can to stand up to these terrorists.

Praying for all peace loving Muslims and Christians, and every one who is in harm’s way in Egypt from the Muslim Brotherhood.

God’s will be done.

I know he will reward His children, and He knows each one of them by name. I know it.

Dear Father God...

We come thanking you so much for moving lightman to post this thread....and bless him for doing so.

Lord...keep Egypt in the palm of your hand tonight and only allow things to go so far as to accomplish your purposes there....for the nation and each man woman and child.

Praying especially for those who bare your name and those who will yet come to you there... You know each and the very hairs on their heads....guard their minds at this time.... that when decisions must be made and warnings known.. that all might handle this uncertainty and make choices as you would have them..for the safety of all.

Lord, we ask that thru your servants you might make known to those frightened and alone without you, your salvation message wrapped in your love for them...and equip your saints there to discern their hearts rightly as it’s given.

Thank you God for your great Mercy for us...for them...and for those who are yet to come to you.

May your great and Holy name be high and lifted up thru this great time of trouble til they come out on the other side of it all.

Rejoicing now in your truth

In Jesus Name Amen

Thank you for reminding me, Salvation - I have objected to the change from "Our Lady of Victory" to "Our Lady of the Rosary" for some time. Of course, they are one and the same.

On another note, my wife Mary, who brought me back to Catholicism, was born October 7.

The Lord works in many ways, doesn't he?

Prayers up For The Christians of Egypt!

The enemy is attacking all of our Brethren, Copts, Orthodox, Catholic, Baptist, Evangelical, Protestant, and Pentecostal. The muzzies don’t believe in denominations...we are ALL “Infidels” to them.

Dear Heavenly Father,
We lift our Brothers and Sisters up to You.
We ask that You Comfort Them, Embrace them, and Shield Them from the enemy.
We ask that You Strengthen them in this time of fiery trial.
We plead with You on their behalf,
And Pray Your Blessings Upon Them.
In Jesus Holy Name
Amen.

Lord God, Thank you again for raising up those who are willing to secure your places of worship in Egypt. We are so grateful that you will use any who are willing who understand that some things just are not what you seek for men to do. Lord, we pray for the Egyptian Military that they might restrain themselves when possible to do so and that you move among the people there to desire to continue to stand against that which destroys, maimes and kills without cause or reason. We are viewing a war against the Father of Destruction so we pray that soon there may be a victory which over comes... that your goodness might be seen in the hearts and minds of the Egyptian people. In Jesus name...protect those who are protecting your people Lord...that they might continue their work among the Egyptian people without fear. .....amen Human chain protecting chuch today....
