Pray for peace

Pray for peace

Daily Reading for May 16 • The Martyrs of the Sudan

“So he shepherded them with a faithful and true heart and guided them with the skillfulness of his hands.” (Psalm 78:72)

God is opening doors for our partnership work with the church in Sudan. . . . As God opens these doors, keep praying so that we can walk through them faithfully to bring relief to those suffering, hope to those laboring, and effective support to those working hard to keep the peace. . . .

We pray for the church in Sudan, that it will continue to be an effective peacemaker, leader and teacher.

We pray for all those working to bring about an equitable and peaceful separation of South Sudan and Sudan, for the safety, prosperity, and harmony of both countries, and for the protection of religious freedom in both countries.

And we pray that we will be steadfast in prayers for peace and for our partners in Sudan.

All this we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

From the Sudan Prayer Update by Russ Randle for March 29, 2011, found at the website of the American Friends of the Episcopal Church of Sudan,

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
