For the Election of the New Coptic Orthodox Patriarch
« on: November 03, 2012, 08:37:23 PM »
Perhaps I should have created this thread earlier, but anyway...

Tomorrow is the Election of the new Pope and Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church, please pray that God may grant the Church a good new shepherd.

Through the prayers of The Theotokos and St. Mark the Evangelist, Lord grant this!

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord, guide the election so that we may be blessed to have a good and faithful patriarch to shepherd Your Church in Egypt and throughout the world.

Lord, have mercy.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Severian,

I am sure that God will grant us the shepherd that is suitable to sit on the throne of St. Mark. Consider this; to move the Mokattam mountain, the church fasted for three days and their prayers were answered. On the contrary, this year, we fasted for 9 days for the selection of the new patriarch. If three days of fasting was able to move a mountain, nine days of fasting should be plenty for God to work though the hand of a small child in selecting the new Patriarch.
