Lord have mercy! My fiance is telling me that over 15 churches in Egypt have been burned down or ruined in the last day and a half, and many people killed.  :'(

Lord, have mercy on your children.
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.

Σῶσον Κύριε τὸν λαόν σου, καὶ εὐλόγησον τὴν κληρονομίαν σου, νίκας τοῖς Βασιλεύσι, κατὰ βαρβάρων δωρούμενος, καὶ τὸ σὸν φυλάττων, διὰ τοῦ Σταυροῦ σου πολίτευμα.

The word barbarians is particularly apt.

Most Holy Theotokos, save us.

Lord, have mercy!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

My prayers that God may grant them peace and shelter to avoid disturbances of evil and cosmic war. Through prayer the spiritual level war is won, and so is the cosmic war aswell.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

He left the country, and is in UAE now thankfully. Things are somewhat calmed down there compared to before...for now.
