Pray for Sudan

March 26, 2014: (From Christ Church, Alexandria, VA) We pray for the almost five million people in South Sudan who are in need of humanitarian assistance. As rains come early and some fighting continues may you keep people safe, sheltered, and healthy. Amen.

March 12, 2014: Continue to pray for peace and deep healing of the conflicts and rivalries in South Sudan.

February 26, 2014: (From Christ Church, Alexandria, VA)  As the scale of the humanitarian impact of the crisis becomes clearer in South Sudan, we pray for the 3.7 million people at high risk of food insecurity. May their hunger of all types be satisfied. Amen.

February 12, 2014: (From Episcopal Relief and Development) Most merciful God, whose peace surpasses all understanding, protect your children in South Sudan as they struggle for safety amid political unrest; guide them as they seek basic sustenance; and bless them as they forge a new path. Be with our sisters and brothers in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan as they respond to the crisis around them, so that their hearts and minds will be guarded to carry on the work of your son Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, in whose name we pray. Amen.

January 29, 2014: Continue to pray for peace and deep healing of the conflicts and rivalries in South Sudan.

January 15, 2014: Continue to pray for peace and deep healing of the conflicts and rivalries in South Sudan.

January 1, 2014: Pray for peace and deep healing of the conflicts and rivalries in South Sudan.

December 18, 2013: Pray for an end to the internal political strife and violence in South Sudan, for a just peace and reconciliation among those in conflict, and for security for all who live and work in Juba and all parts of the nation. Please continue to pray likewise for the people of Darfur, Blue Nile, and South Kordofan and all others living with conflict and insecurity in Sudan. 

December 4, 2013: Pray for peace in and between Sudan and South Sudan. Pray for the leaders and people of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan.

November 20, 2013: Pray for the needed support and funding to make important initiatives in South Sudan sucessful, especially development of a new constitution, an end to the violence in Jonglei state, and the advancement of peace and reconciliation throughout the new nation. Pray for theological education and the deployment of pastors in Ibba Diocese. And pray for all who are in harm's way in Sudan and South Sudan, especially those in Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile, where Sudan's armed forces are directing a strong effort to eradicate rebellion.

November 6, 2013: Greg Miller's plea for prayer after the attacks in Jonglei state seems fitting far beyond its borders: "Let us pray for the survivors and for the children separated from their families, perhaps forever. Let us pray for peacemakers."
