The Coptic Evangelical Church in Heliopolis posted a video on its official Facebook page showing Christians dedicating a prayer for fasting Muslims, asking that god support them, protect their health and accept their loyalty.
The video shows the leader of the choir wondering how Muslims can stand abandoning water in this scorching weather.
“I really don’t know how they are fasting and how they are able to bear this weather, let’s pray for them who despite the hot weather they insist to fast, let’s ask god to reach them and protect their well-being,” she said.
The video went viral on Facebook, gaining thousands of likes and more than 26,000 shares from people who praised the stance; “Thank you for your kind words and feeling,” one Muslim user wrote.
This is not the first time the Evangelical Church has dedicated a special prayer, as they have also prayed for the country and its safety.
