From 6am on Wednesday 4th May for 24 hours, Oxford Prayer Room will host a special installation designed to help us pray for Sudan with maps, photos, personal testimonies, interactive media, personal audio and much more! Please drop in any time 6am Wednesday 4th – 6am Thursday 5th to take part. There will also be corporate prayer at 7am (liturgical style) and 7pm (open prayer), all welcome.


Many of us prayed for Sudan in the lead up to January’s referendum in which 98.8% of Southern Sudanese voters opted to secede from the North. But we need to keep praying. Secession is due to take place in July, but there is no agreement yet on borders, resource-sharing or the rights of Southerners living in the North. The contested region of Abyei has witnessed ethnic cleansing with villages burned down and tens of thousands displaced and living in the open air without food, water or shelter.


Both those who have been praying for Sudan for years, and those who are complete Sudan novices, will find the installation thoughtful, informative and prayer-provoking. God has a plan for Sudan. Let’s participate in that plan, calling on the Lord to complete what He has started, seeking His heart, suffering and rejoicing with the Sudanese people.
