South Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Motivate and inspire every Christian Believer in South Sudan to put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, they may be able to stand their ground, and after they have done everything, to stand. Command the Churches to fulfil the great commission of the Lord Jesus Christ by boldly sharing the good news. We declare the victorious acts of God over South Sudanese and hoist the glorious and triumphant flag. Bring an immediate halt to infighting between rival military factions in South Sudan causing the immediate cessation of hostilities. Revitalize and rejuvenate the strength of the feeble people of the country to fearlessly fight the evil done to them and hold their peace and ultimately turn to God in their need and pain (The Bible, Ephesians 6:13).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

South Sudan in northeastern Africa is the world’s newest country. It faces widespread poverty linked to its weak, underdeveloped industry and infrastructure, resulting from decades of civil war with Sudan. Lack of jobs and training opportunities, ingrained war culture, tribalism, vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, and high levels of illiteracy challenge the South Sudanese, especially women and children, who are often victims of violence, poverty, rape, slavery, and human trafficking. The South Sudanese church is growing rapidly in numbers due to religious freedom and a mass population movement from north to south.
