Prayer Points

Prayer Points.

A major part of CASSS’s ministry is the flow of information from the churches in South Sudan and Sudan to CASSS’s prayer supporters.

This information sharing is achieved through the CASSS committee, the Sudan Church 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! 

June 2020

7/6/20 In May the inflation rate in Sudan was reported as close to 100%. Food, cooking gas, charcoal and firewood are all expensive and in short supply. 

Pray for a generous response from Leeds diocese and that emergency help may quickly and safely reach the places of greatest need.

Prayer for the nation of Sudan at this time of international crisis is an on-going need. Christians are among the poorest members of society, so let us pray, focussing in turn on those in the different dioceses of this geographically huge Anglican province:

 

14/6/20  Covid-19 infection is present in all parts of Sudan, with the highest numbers of cases and deaths in and around Khartoum. Pray for Christian clergy and congregations there and for Archbishop Ezekiel with responsibility for Khartoum Diocese and the Province of Sudan.

 

21/6/20 Pray for Bishop Samaan, his clergy and congregations in Wad Medani Diocese.

Pray for Bishop Abdu and the Diocese of Port Sudan. This diocese includes the Red Sea State, the poorest state in the country.

 

28/6/20 Pray for Bishop Ismail and his small number of helpers in El Obeid and for Bishop Hassan and Christians in Kadugli.

July 2020

5/7/20 Pray for leaders of the Episcopal Church of Sudan and particularly for Archbishop Ezekiel, for his leadership and responsibility for the needs of the church throughout the five dioceses, and as he and other faith leaders continue to work with the government.

12/7/20 Pray for the Sudanese government, described in a recent briefing from the European Council on Foreign Relations as “struggling to navigate a political transition amid a deep economic crisis.”

The UN high commissioner for human rights warns of untold suffering in Sudan unless the country receives greater international assistance.

Pray that Western government policies enable aid funding to reach areas of greatest need quickly.

 

19/7/20 Pray for church building and self-sufficiency projects as inflation pushes up the cost of materials. Pray that work on two classrooms planned at El Fashir in El Obeid Diocese are able to go ahead. ( a reminder of the distances involved – El Fashir is 600km by road from El Obeid, with an estimated journey time of  8 – 9 hours)

 

26/7/20 Pray for our Christian brothers and sisters throughout Sudan, for their safety and wellbeing, but above all that throughout these times of trial they may feel the love, mercy and protection of God.
