Egypt: Water… Peace… at this time of Pentecost…

Thank you, Lord, for the Nile …
A wonderful gift which you have given to Egypt, our beautiful land …
This Nile that Pharaoh valued, loved, and looked after for so many years …
Help us Lord to care for the Nile and to protect it from harm …

Lord, give water always to all those who need it …
This water which is the symbol of the living water for which all thirst …
The water of which you spoke to the Samaritan woman, and which we all ask for …
The water of our baptism, which renews our lives …

Bless Egypt, which sheltered you when you were a child, with Our Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph … and bless the whole world …
Keep Egypt in your peace, and give this same peace to our days …
This peace which is yours, and that You give not as the world gives …
