“The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.” – James 5:16

The people of South Sudan desperately need our help. Years of conflict have ravaged their nation leaving thousands of refugees, widows, and orphans. It also left a swath of unimaginable hunger, homelessness, and medical crises.

Both the suffering people of South Sudan, and partners on the frontlines dedicated to helping them, greatly need our prayers.

Perhaps you’ve followed Sudan Relief Fund posts and you’re familiar with the plight of this nation. Or maybe you’re learning about South Sudan for the first time. Either way, we hope you will join us in lifting up the people of this country in prayer.


Lifting Up South Sudan is a collective of caring individuals who want to help in this mission, to bring light into struggling lives and share God’s love by sending up the gift of prayer.

If you’re reading this, you know what the power of prayer can do. You know that your prayers make a difference.

Each week we post a new prayer request. You may pray for urgent needs, immediate crises, or strength for our partners who work in difficult places. With your help, Lifting Up South Sudan can be a powerful force to move mountains in a troubled region.

Imagine the collective prayers of partners mobilizing all over the world, going up in solidarity to battle suffering and oppression – a battle fought on our knees and in our chapels.


You can be part of this vital team. Invite friends and family to receive our prayer requests and praises. Take them to your small group or your church. Share! Prayer changes things.

As a Lifting Up South Sudan prayer partner, watch for new prayer requests in your email each week. Pray for an orphanage today, or a child who needs healing. Next week pray for volunteers toiling in a remote hospital in the Nuba Mountains. We’ll also rejoice together in praises.
