Readers are probably aware of the civil unrest in Egypt and the people’s efforts to achieve democracy in their country. Egypt is not the other country making the new for revolution. Tunisia and Ivory Coast are others and there is speculation that demands for democracy will spread across the Middle East and Africa.
The WAVE Women’s Service Mission is organizing a prayer vigil this where WAVE readers join together in prayer for peace and democracy in the Middle East.
Please join us Tuesday evening, February 2nd at 8:00 p.m. in prayer, as families and individuals, for the Lord’s blessing and assistance of these countries in achieving what its citizens hold so dear.
We cannot help but think of the American legacy of revolution that achieved democracy for the United States. Our hearts go out the people of these countries who are in the midst of that struggle and in our prayers we include petitions for their safety and for their needs to be met as well as wisdom to act responsibly.
To learn more and to follow one Mormon who has lived in Egypt formerly, read at By Common Consent.
So again, please join together as fellow WAVErs in support of voice and equality for the people of Egypt, Africa and the Middle East on Tuesday February 2, at 8:00 pm.
It is our hope that our wave of prayers can help God’s will to go forward in these regions of the world.
