Join us in praying with Pastor Edward Dima, President of the Baptist Convention of South Sudan, who shared a significant prayer need this week. Tribal fighting between the Murle, Dinka, and Nuer is ongoing now in the Jonglei state area of Pibor. Thousands are now on the run to the bush in Pibor, where no food or medicine is available due to the evacuation of non-profit organizations to safer areas. Please pray now for peace within the area and for provision for those forced to flee. We also join Saphano Riak Chol, General Secretary of Faith Evangelical Baptist Church - South Sudan, in prayer for residents in the Bor area who recently had to abandon their homes due to flooding.

A Prayer for Peace

Bless, O Lord, those who hear your word and believe it.
We pray for the people who are in remote areas,
and live in fear of the world of spirits,
that they will know your power as Saviour of the world.
Bring peace to our land
and all parts of the world that are disturbed,
so that the gospel of salvation may be preached to all humankind.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
