On Palm Sunday, two explosions at Christian churches in Egypt killed over 40 people and injured more than 100.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks through their media agency, shortly after their promise to target more Christians.

According to Fox News, the first explosion occurred at St. George Church in Cairo, where a bomb was planted under one of the seats.

The second terror attack happened just hours later at the St. Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria. A suicide bomber attempted to walk into the church, but officers stopped him, resulting in less killings and injuries.

People all over the world are coming together in prayer for this great tragedy including major leaders, like President Trump and Franklin Graham.

Please join us in prayer for the victims and their loved ones. May God bring peace, comfort and justice!
