South Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

There have been recent, unprecedented floods in South Sudan. People are suffering from famine. We pray for God to speak to those in leadership to wisely handle internal conflicts, economic needs, and the refugee crisis. We declare the new life that His first advent brought to everyone in South Sudan. May the light of the Lord shine upon those who are living in darkness so that their sin may be revealed and forgiven. Open the eyes of understanding of the Christian Believers to comprehend the redemption plan of God and appreciate the indwelling Christ, the Emmanuel. We pray for the Church to spread the light in South Sudan during this Christmas season. (The Bible, John 1:4-5).
