Sudan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Sudan needs a long-lasting civilian-led government. May the Lord direct Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, the General Commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces, to commit to democratic transition so that peace may prevail in Sudan. The people need to live without anxiety brought on by their dangerous political situation. We proclaim that the Lord is the prince of peace and the glorious ruler over Sudan. May the Sudanese Christian Believers extol Him, God with us, to all peoples this Christmas season. (The Bible, Psalm 117:1).

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.
