Friday Prayers for Egypt: Depreciation, Again

Flag Cross Quran


Value the Egyptian currency properly. Value more the lives affected by its fluctuation.

But aid also the greater factors: Return tourists, attract investment, stimulate entrepreneurship.

And limit also the greater consequences: Curb inflation, fight gouging, shelter the poor.

Yet reform also the greater context: Simplify laws, expose corruption, grant stability.

God, much is wrong in Egypt, but much is also possible. Give wisdom to political and economic leaders to set things right.

Give courage to officials to implement. Give patience to the people to endure. Give rebuke, as necessary, to beneficiaries of current dysfunction.

Properly distribute the currency, God. Value the people, and answer the persistent fluctuation of hope.

Float Egypt on a high and rising tide.
