NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, 10TH MARCH 2017

Prayer for South Sudanese Leaders


Led by Rt Rev Moses Deng Bol -Bishop of the ECSS Diocese of Wau

1) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realize that the people, the land, the rivers, the trees, the birds and the insects of South Sudan do not have any problem at all.

2) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realise that the international community (the UN, the AU, the IGAD etc) is not the problem of South Sudan.

3) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realise that he and his Generals are the problem of this country because they have refused to abide by the rule of law, instead they are promoting the rule of guns resulting in the massive loss of lives and properties of innocent civilians.

4) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realise that he and his Generals are the problem of this country because they have refused to hold people who have committed atrocities against innocent civilians accountable instead they are being treated as heroes and heroines.

5) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realise that he and his Generals are the problem of this country because they have denied South Sudanese one of their basic rights and democratic principles, the freedom of speech and expression. FM radios and newspapers are being shut down by security personnel and their reporters given death threats by the infamous unknown gunman. Similarly civil society organizations and individuals including Church Leaders who dare to correct the Government where it has gone wrong are being categorized as Politicians or rebel supporters.

6) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that Lord to touches the heart of our President in order to realise that he and his Generals are responsible for the suffering of our people because they have refused to hold people who have stolen hundreds of millions of public funds accountable instead they are calling themselves Bishops as if Bishops don’t hold thieves accountable.

7) Brothers and sisters we have come here to pray that the Lord touches the heart of our President in order to realize that associating himself with self-appointed tribal group, particularly the so called Jieng Council of Elders is damaging the unity of South Sudanese and the future of Jieng (Dinka) community.

Let us pray.
