Prayer for Sudan

Jonathan Hall, Director of Foursquare Missions sends this urgent prayer request to all the churches:

“As a probable result of the arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court for Omar al-Bashir (the president of Sudan, who will likely stand trial for crimes against humanity and war crimes) many aid organizations are being expelled by the Sudanese government from Darfur and other locations in north and east Sudan. This will leave scores of men, women and children without food, medicine and other life-saving programs.  Estimates state that more than one million rely on the aid provided to survive or receive help of some kind from the aid groups (such as Oxfam, Doctors Without Borders and Care International) that have been ejected.  Please pray.  This has the potential to cause an instant genocide by starvation within days.  The text we are praying is from Luke 1:17 (paraphrase): ‘Turn the hearts of the … disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous.’”

Thank you for praying,
Pastor George
