a prayer for peace in South Sudan

Most merciful and loving God, how precious is your Name. This morning I pray for all those in distress from war and violence in every land. I especially lift up the people of South Sudan where peace is so desperately needed.

Let your grace abound and let the power of of your Holy Spirit minister comfort to all those most in need. Fill your people with the hunger to minister to the needs of the poor and hungry providing food for both body and soul.

And for all of us, we pray that your perfect will be done. Guide us and direct us in thought word and deed so that we continue to move our world toward a place of peace and justice. AMEN
