Prayer against civil war in South Sudan
(©2015 Jon Warren/World Vision)
Lord, today we pray against the conflict in South Sudan. We are sad that this young nation has known almost nothing but conflict. We are shocked by the millions of people who have fled to neighboring countries, or who are displaced within their own. We are dismayed that this displacement prevents farming, and thus causes high food prices and huge obstacles in delivering food to remote areas… which leads to famine and disease, as well as children being recruited as soldiers in the conflict simply to survive. The list of troubles goes on… Lord, please intervene in South Sudan. We pray for the government and rebel forces to come to a peace agreement that will last. We pray for creative access to the malnourished and afraid, so they can be cared-for. We pray for hope for the hopeless, safety for those in flight. We pray for the root issues to be addressed to prevent the loss of further life. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
