Prayer about tour bus bombing in Egypt
Father, today we pray about Friday’s bombing in Cairo, Egypt, that claimed the lives of four people and injured several others. At this time, we do not know the source of the attack. We pray that this is an isolated incident, that the perpetrators are apprehended quickly, and that you will guide authorities in protecting tourists and Egyptian citizens from future threats. We pray for the families of the victims and for the surviving tourists as they process through their grief and shock. Help them to embrace your peace and drive out fear. We ask for cooperation between Egypt’s interior ministry and the Vietnamese embassy and for a prolonged positive relationship between these two countries. Father, we know this type of incident can impact those whose livelihood relies on the tourism industry. Please continue to meet the needs of the workers despite any potential decline in revenue. Sin has far reaching impact, but we pray fervently against it and continue to trust in your provision and unwavering love for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
