Prayer Points

Prayer Points.

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! 

JANUARY 2019

20/1/19 Pray for Mothers’ Union members and other Christian women who visit women in prison and for families suffering extra hardship when a mother or father is in prison and it may be difficult to get news.

27/1/19 A recent visitor to Sudan from the Diocese of Leeds wrote, “The value of a link is to take us outside our boundaries and feel the deep things of life afresh. The problem always is to translate these things back into daily living, so they are truly transforming.” Pray that more may experience such value, whether through the direct experience of visits or through learning, caring and praying about the lives of partners.

FEBRUARY 2019

3/2/19 Towards the end of last year a group of women in Kadugli undertook training in leading liturgical worship. Pray for them and that they find opportunities to use what they have learned and that those who hear them may be touched by their ministry.

10/2/19. Protests triggered by hugely increased costs of bread and fuel have taken place in Khartoum, Omdurman and other towns. Peaceful demonstrations have been met by tear gas and live ammunition. Pray for those injured and the families of those killed and for people who are most affected by price rises. Pray for Sudan at a time of growing unrest.

17/2/19 Pray for those licensed as Lay Readers and Mothers’ Union leaders in Wad Medani Diocese during Archbishop Ezekiel’s visit last year and give thanks for their unselfish service to their local churches and communities.

24/2/19 Pray for those responsible for the Provincial Headquarters building which is being extended to provide much needed office space and eventually a guest house. Give thanks for the completion of the first phase by an enthusiastic team of builders with limited equipment, and pray that funds will be found to finish the building and bring it into use.
