No organization has yet claimed responsibility for the ghastly attack, though forces of the Islamic State have carried out similar attacks against Muslims and Christians in Sinai.
We Christians stand with Egypt against such evil.
Please join me in praying for President el-Sisi, Intelligence chief Khalid Fawzi, and the Egyptian security services to swiftly defeat these monstrous terrorists and bring calm and stability to the Sinai and all of Egypt.
Please pray for U.S. and Israeli leaders to provide any intelligence and security assistance Egypt may require.
Please pray most of all for the God of all comfort to comfort all those affected by the attack, for physical, emotional and spiritual healing and comfort in such a dark time.
Rev. Johnnie Moore, one of our Delegates, just reminded me of Isaiah 54:14. “In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you.” It’s a good word. Let’s pray this comes to pass for Egypt, and all the people of the Middle East.
Our Delegation traveled to Cairo
earlier this month to build a sincere and lasting friendship with the leaders and people of Egypt and to encourage them in their important and courageous fight against the forces of Radical Islamism and all such wickedness.
I am sure I can speak for each Member of the Delegation when I say our admiration for President el-Sisi’s resolve to bring the perpetrators of terror to justice, and to provide true peace and prosperity for all Egyptians — Muslims, Christians, Jews and others alike — was deep before we met with him. It has only grown since.
To His Excellency the President and the nation of Egypt, the message of Evangelical Christians is simple: “Your fight is our fight. We need each other. We stand with you. We pray for you. You are not alone.”
