Holy Martyrs, pray for us.

Coptic Icon of Mary and Jesus

We join with Christians around the world in praying for the families and friends of the 21 Coptic Christians killed by ISIS. We pray for all our brothers and sisters being persecuted at this time, and the countries in which they live. We pray for the perpetrators of such violence. The names of the Egyptian martyrs are given below. We ask for THEIR prayers, that we, too, may be strengthened for our witness to Jesus.

O God of love, 
your holy martyrs died 
rather than deny Jesus. 
We ask them to pray for us,
that our lives will bear witness to the Gospel 
and be worthy of their sacrifice. 
Through Jesus Christ, your Son,
who is alive and reigns with you 
and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
