Prayer for Egypt, April 9, 2017

Hosanna, God, please save us.
Blessed is the One who come in God’s name.

Blessed today in Egypt
are those who die in your name
with palms in their hands,
songs of children on their lips,
a story of a donkey
leading the way
to a brave entering, a sad going out,
and an alleluia
that can never be denied.

Hosanna for God’s children in Tanta.
Hosanna for God’s children in Alexandria.
Wrap, O Risen One,
not only the bright but brittle palms
of this morning around them,
but gather each to you in paradise,
and send angels of comfort
to push away the heavy stones
of your Coptic people who mourn.
