Prayer for the people of South Sudan

God of grace,
God of justice,
God of peace,
you create us to live together,
to honor and respect one another.
Hear us as we pray for South Sudan.

We pray for the people of South Sudan.
Grant courage to turn from violence;
grace to see each other as sisters and brothers;
strength to work for justice for all;
passion to seek peace;
and all that is needed for the living of these days.

We pray for the leaders of South Sudan.
Grant vision for a just and peace country;

wisdom to govern wisely;
strength to work for justice for all;
passion to seek peace;
and all that is needed for the living of these days.

We pray for the peoples and nations of the world.
Grant compassion for the people of South Sudan;
commitment to act in ways
that enhance the well-being of all the people;
strength to work for justice for all;
passion to seek peace;
and all that is needed for the living of these days.

God of grace,
God of justice,
God of peace,
you create us to live together,
to honor and respect one another.
Bless South Sudan and her people.

We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

The Rev. W. Mark Koenig
