Let us keep the people in South Sudan and the Republic of Sudan in our prayers as South Sudan becomes an independent nation this Saturday, July 9. Other prayer resources may be found on the Catholic Relief Services website.
God of Mercies, we thank you for your great love for us all.
We ask you to guide the leaders of Sudan in the process of nation building, and we pray that you might grant them and all your people
your wisdom, compassion and fortitude.
We give thanks for all who have worked hard for peace and we pray for all who have died during the long years of conflict.
Unite us all in solidarity, people of every race and language, every tribe and community.
God, bless the new nation of South Sudan and bless the Republic of Sudan, as they face the future, a future full of hope.
We ask all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
