South Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

Praise God that throughout fifty years of struggles, South Sudan’s different Churches have remained faithful. Praise God for Christian Believers from Uganda who are able to fly a small plane into South Sudan and visit with rural communities, offering Biblical teaching and discipleship and encouraging the local churches in South Sudan (The Bible, Isaiah 40:29).

Prayer Requests

Pray that amid destruction and failed politics, Church leaders will emerge as people of credibility and national recognition (The Bible, Ezra 8:23)

Pray that God will enable the Christian leaders to effectively lobby the international community to support peace between communities torn apart by war and ethnic strife (The Bible, Luke 22:26).

Call to Salvation

We declare God’s rule and reign over South Sudan. May the Christian Leaders encourage national unity. Embolden the Church to overcome acts of intimidation and enable the Christian Believers to boldly profess their faith in Christ (The Bible, Mark 13:10).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Salva Kiir Mayardit is the President. and Abdalla Hamdok was appointed as Prime Minister by the Sovereignty Council on 21 August 2019, as part of the country’s transition to democracy.

South Sudan, a nation of roughly 11 million people, is seen as one of the most diverse nations in the region, consisting of more than 60 different ethnic groups. Around 60% of its population identifies as Christian. Although it attained independence from Sudan in 2011, in recent years, political disputes have largely fallen along ethnic lines. South Sudan is only recently emerging from a devastating, multiyear civil war. However, it has been mired in political instability and violence since 2013. Although the new outbreak of war caught the Church unprepared in South Sudan, it has played a major role in protecting people and mobilizing humanitarian support, and in mediating local peace and reconciliation processes rebuilding the capacity of the nation.
