Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, encourage the Christian Sudanese Believers to understand that You have promised Jesus Christ. Help them to have peace in all their tough situations.  Empower them that they will be able to face the troubles in life courageously. Inspire them that they will take heart and not lose hope since You have overcome the world. Urge the Sudanese authorities to take practical steps to get justice for victims of the Darfur conflict and hold those responsible for atrocities in the region accountable. Bring to justice the militias accused of mass killings and rapes. Up to 300,000 people were killed and 2.7 million were driven from their homes. Lord embolden the Churches to proclaim the victory of Jesus Christ over sin, sickness and satan to the people of Sudan (The Bible, John 16:33).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, a dictator known for brutal policies against Christians has been forced to step down in Sudan after 30 years in power. Bashir’s military is also responsible for bombing civilians in the Nuba Mountains, where a significant Christian minority lives. Christians there are often subject to brutal treatment from the surrounding culture and from authorities; conversion from Islam to Christianity is punishable by death. Church buildings are regularly attacked and burned. The Christian community in Sudan is waiting and watching the uncertain future along with the rest of the world.
