Sudanese Authorities Campaign to Destroy Christian Churches

When the southern part of Sudan seceded six years ago and became an independent nation of South Sudan, it split along religious lines. Most of Sudan is Muslim and most of South Sudan is Christian, but that did not mean that no Christians live and worship in Sudan. There has been a deliberate government campaign to weaken the church in Sudan. Ownership of church property has been challenged. 27 churches have been designated for demolition. Two churches have already been crushed. Christian pastors have been jailed on trumped up charges.
 
Authorities claim the churches violate the designated purpose for the plots of land, yet they refuse to designate any plots to be used for church buildings. They claim that there is no need for new church buildings while at the same time they are systematically destroying the ones that exist! Christian Believers have found little recourse for their complaints of unfair and illegal destruction of property. This systematic destruction calls for systematic and focused prayer for God's intervention! Increasingly, Sudan makes the headlines for its violation of human rights. This purposeful destruction of churches is just the latest violation.
 
The nation of Sudan has risen from 7 to 5 on the 2017 Open World Watch List of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world. Window International Network partners pray for Sudan on Day 2 in accordance with the Praying Through the Window 9: Global Terrorism and World Religions prayer calendar.

Please pray for:
  • Government efforts to demolish or confiscate church properties to cease. May God intervene and save His people (The Bible, Exodus 15:9-10).
  • Wisdom, patience and peace for church leaders and members facing ongoing harassment, unfair treatment, and persecution (The Bible, Proverbs 19:11).
  • Those responsible for these acts of hostility and destruction will love mercy, act justly and learn about Jesus Christ and choose to follow Him (The Bible, Micah 6:8).
  • God to arise and His enemies to be scattered (The Bible, Psalm 68:1)
