Lord God, we ask for your help with the large container ship currently blocking Egypt’s Suez Canal. Knowing that traffic is currently backed up and that lines will only get longer, we are eager for the Ever Given to be refloated and on its way. While a stuck vessel may seem insignificant to some, we are concerned about global trading being delayed and the fact that international oil prices are already rising in response to this situation. We pray for the safety and effectiveness of the eight tug boats that are working to refloat the ship and for the diggers on the ground that are removing sand from where the ship is wedged into the side of the canal bank. We are thankful that no one has been hurt so far and we pray that continues to be the case. We pray for traffic to return to normal on the Suez Canal as quickly as possible. In Jesus’ name, amen.
