Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
According to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, in the last seven years the authorities in Sudan have demolished, damaged or threatened with demolition almost 50 church buildings and have arrested almost 200 Christians, many of them for protesting about the demolition or expropriation of church property. This is all “part of a broader campaign to shrink the space available for Christians to practise their faith” on the pretext that, since mainly-Christian South Sudan became independent in 2011, there should be no more Christians left in Sudan itself. This goes way beyond the restrictions of sharia law, according to which Christians can live in an Islamic state (such as Sudan) albeit treated as secondclass in comparison with Muslims. Pray for a complete change of attitude of the Sudanese government to the Christian minority (estimated at 3%), who cling to their faith despite such pressure.
