Again we pray for the suffering people of Egypt, Syria, Ukraine, and Pakistan and throughout the world who are being persecuted for their Christian faith, especially Father Cyril he is persecution for Christian faith and preaching in nonbelievers.
Again we pray to Thee, O Lord and God, for the repose of those who have departed this life in these ungodly, horrific and evil persecutions; especially those whose earthly sojourns have ended suddenly, without repentance; give them rest where all sickness, sorrow and sighing have passed away: hear us, O Lord, and have mercy.

It is a common Orthodox practice for the faithful to give thanks to God in prayer for positive outcomes in their lives. One of the Mission’s parishioners, Angelina Rashida, invited Father Cyril to perform a thanksgiving prayer service with his family. Her mother Rehmat Bibi recently recovered from a long illness and the family wanted to give thanks. Father Cyril presented a homily and explains the importance of thanks giving.
