Daily Prayer - Thursday 28 June 2012
Since mid-2011, South Kordofan and Blue Nile in the border region between Sudan and South Sudan have been under sustained attack by the Sudan Armed Forces. The Nuba Mountains area, which is around 30% Christian, has been one of the worst hit. It is the latest genocidal campaign by the Sudanese government, which wants a purely Arab and Islamic state. Thousands of people have been fleeing to the mainly Christian, mainly African, South Sudan, which is under severe strain; a major food shortage is expected in 2012, as drought has ruined crops. Pray that South Sudan will have the resources to cope with the influx of refugees, and that Sudan will stop bombing South Kordofan and Blue Nile.
