Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The army’s rule in recent years in the country has ended Sudan’s transition to democracy. It has made the nation plunge into a deep economic crisis. The power grab by the generals of the army has caused a deterioration in the living conditions of the people. There are continuous protests by tens of thousands of Sudanese all across the country. People are trying to defy the police restrictions and even the tear gas firing. Pray for God’s greatness, power, glory, victory, and majesty to be revealed and manifested in this poverty-stricken country. May this highly indebted poor country in the world be transformed by the power of God. Pray for the suffering Sudanese Christian Believers to gain strength in God’s grace, who has called them to His eternal glory in Christ. Pray He will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish them (The Bible, 1 Peter 5:10).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Sudan is listed in 13th position in the World Watch report 2021 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. Incumbent Abdalla Hamdok is the present Prime Minister of The Republic of Sudan.
Religious minorities, especially Christians have been treated badly for their faith in Christ. They have endured hate speech and terrible abhorrence. There was a military-led coup in Sudan on 25th October 2021 leading to the detention of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and several key Sudanese government officials. Sudan has been in a tenuous situation ever since a coup in 2019 eliminated the rule of long-term dictator Omar al-Bashir.
