A major part of SCA’s ministry is the flow of information from the churches in South Sudan and Sudan to SCA’s prayer supporters.
This information sharing is achieved through the SCA committee, the SCA Review and our website.
Please pray for South Sudan and Sudan’s current prayer needs. We know that as we pray in faith our prayers have a huge impact!
18/11/18 Pray for displaced people throughout Sudan, for the poor and homeless, for those unable to find work. Pray for the work of the churches and those of all faiths who work for justice and peace.
25/11/18 A young Christian woman in Khartoum says, “Although I grew up with no parents, I always knew Jesus was with me.” She speaks with pride of her faith and leads projects to help women and children. Her story is in the recent leaflet produced by the Leeds Diocese Sudan group, headed “Together in faith we can…”.
Pray for that young woman and that the leaflet is widely taken up and leads to more understanding and commitment to being part of the whole family of God.
2/12/18 Pray for the Diocese of Kadugli. A message in their newsletter tells of a church in good heart in this troubled area, planning a mission in December to bring the Gospel to unreached people. Pray for this and for Assistant Bishop Hassan’s aim to have a primary school and kindergarten operational by the end of the year.
9/12/18 Pray for the Diocese of Wad Medani and Bishop Saman. Pray for the newly completed St Philip Primary School in Kenana which aims to give basic education to poor Christian families, orphans and others in need in the community.
16/12/18 Pray for the Diocese of Port Sudan and for Bishop Abdu. Kassala, one of the major towns in this diocese, is almost 300 miles south of Port Sudan. In summer the region around Kassala was devastated by floods. Pray that people there have been able to rebuild their lives and that the damaged church school is once again providing Christian education. Pray for the struggling church school in Port Sudan.
23/12/18 Pray for the Diocese of Khartoum, for Archbishop Ezekiel and Christians throughout Sudan as they celebrate Christmas – no public holiday, none of the traditions and commercial accretions we have grown used to and risk being swamped by, but the joy of the Word made flesh and dwelling among us.
30/12/2018 Pray for the Diocese of El Obeid and for Bishop Ismail. Pray that the shops they have established continue to prosper, providing service for the community and generating income which will allow some payment to pastors early next year. Pray that they will be able to fulfil their plans to extend and improve schools in the region.
