Lord, we pray for Cairo police as they continue to battle insurgents in the Sinai Peninsula. We condemn the consistent terrorist attacks in this region, including the roadside bomb that struck a tourist bus near the Giza Pyramids Monday, wounding 17. We are thankful the police are making progress, having killed 16 militants in raids Tuesday--without any casualties among their own forces. We are also thankful for the success the police forces had in tracking down militants on Monday after the roadside bombing. Lord, we never like to hear of gunfights or deaths, but we also know these terrorists are intentional in killing innocent civilians whenever they can. We pray against their harmful work, and we pray that the police will continue to uncover Islamic militant rings in the Sinai Peninsula. Amen.
