Heavenly Father, please be with those who grieve the loss of the eight peacekeepers who died in a helicopter crash in the Egyptian Sinai. We are grieved that a mechanical problem turned their routine mission into the end of their time on earth. We pray for the loved ones of the six Americans, one French national and one Czech national who died on this mission. May their familial and social circles rally around them to comfort and support them during this dark time. Lord, we pray for the one American who survived and is receiving medical care in Israel. We pray for the best medical treatment possible and a quick recovery not only from physical injury, but from the trauma of being the only survivor. We pray investigators will quickly discern the source of the problem and that this will not happen again. We pray for fellow servicemen and women to find reassurance in each other and primarily in you. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
