MAMA MAGGIE’S PRAYER FOR EGYPT
STATE OF EGYPT
Egypt’s people are starved for stability,
desperate for dependability. Many are
Christians who need somewhere to turn.
The deeper the pain, the greater the joy and victory.
In all of our troubles, we have much comfort and great joy.
Love, endurance and tolerance of the Christians of Egypt and most Egyptians is a great sign of:
The eventual victory of humanity toward
Our prayer is that
every human would
come to his senses
until he finds his inner peace.
For the one who finds
reconciliation with his own self

and he will bring healing and joy to the whole world.
Our call now is:
Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
until you reach the light within.
