MIA Prayer Intention: Peace in South Sudan
Next Monday, 9 July, marks 7 years since South Sudan became an independent country. Last Wednesday, President Salva Kiir, and his rival and former deputy, Riek Machar, reached an agreement to end their country’s four and a half year civil war which has resulted in what is being described as the world’s most catastrophic humanitarian crisis.
Prayers are asked for the success of this peace agreement:
'May [God's] justice tower over the
people of South Sudan:
Upholding the righteous,
Protecting the widow and orphan,
Staying the hand that seeks violence,
Reconciling brother with brother,
Sister with sister,
Your children with each other...'
