Prayer requests from Jonglei State

Our partners in the Presbyterian Church of Sudan and the Sudan Council of Churches have made the following specific prayer requests:

Sharon Curry, PC(USA) mission co-worker serving as a regional health and development consultant with the Presbyterian Church of Sudan adds the following request:

My prayer request is that God will help the youth find the solutions that will convince their friends, family members and peers to lay down their weapons, set aside their anger and vengeance and take up the branch of peace that will help them rebuild their country.

In addition to these requests, prayers for all the people of South Sudan and Jonglei State - particularly those who have been killed, injured or displaced, for peace, for justice, for a turn from violence all remain needed.

  1. Please, may I add one more prayer request to the list for the people of South Sudan and Jonglei in particular? I was standing at the airstrip in Akobo yesterday, preparing to be evacuated. Many people came to see me off. I was talking to some youth who were asking me how to end all of this violence and to stop the killings. I don't have answers for them, but we all know that God does. My prayer request is that God help the youth find the solutions that will convince their friends, family members and peers to lay down their weapons, set aside their anger and vengeance and take up the branch of peace that will help them rebuild their country.
