Prayers of the people for South Sudan
“God, help all of us love peace. Use your wisdom to guide the leaders of all countries, so that your peace may grow until the world is filled with the knowledge of your love, now and forever. Amen.”
“Almighty God, the Father of all humanity, we offer up the crisis in South Sudan; turn, we pray, the hearts of all peoples and their rulers, that by the power of your Holy Spirit, peace may be established among the nations on the foundation of your justice, righteousness and truth.”
“God of love, whose compassion never fails, we bring before you the grief and perils of the peoples of South Sudan; the necessities of the homeless; the helplessness of the aged and weak; the sighing of prisoners; the pains of the sick and injured; the sorrow of the bereaved. Comfort and relieve them, O merciful Father, according to their needs. “
