Prayer for Tuesday 13th May

Today from our church family we pray for Margaret Jones.

As part of Christian Aid Week, we pray today for the people of South Sudan. Since last December, 700,000 people have been forced to flee their homes amid escalating violence, with over 10,000 people estimated to have been killed. Christian Aid is among the agencies working to supply food and medical supplies to refugees, but the onset of the rainy season has made the situation increasingly difficult, making  large parts of the country inaccessible to aid convoys. We pray for the people of South Sudan, who have suffered so much in civil war both before and since independence. We pray for the work of organizations such as Christian Aid partner Hope Agency for Relief and Development (HARD), which provides refugees with materials to build new homes and start their lives again. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
