Set aside time to PRAY, wherever you are. Join the church in the Sudans for this Sudans Prayer Focus.
Every year during the month of October, PRAYER for the Sudans is highlighted at the SSNet (Sudan Support Network). This year is no different. We remember so well the International day of Prayer on October 2, 1999. A prayer team was in Port Sudan on that day. For this year Sudan’s prayer summitis from October 7-9, the prayer hub will again be in Port Sudan. Only difference this yea is it will be exclusively local Sudanese believers raising the banner for prayer. May God bless you for that. Let’s rally around them in this very challenging time in the history of the Sudans. The lives of a multitude is at stake, even for the Sake of eternity.
The war in South Sudan has been declared EVIL AND IMMORAL. This lion needs to be slain. Stand in the gap for South Sudan and Sudan during October 7-9.

Pray for Muslims on October 2-4 during the Hajj
This is a call for Christians to pray during October 2-4, 2014. The Hajj, one of the five pillars of the Islamic religion, begins on the 8th day of the 12th month of Dhul Hijjah of the Islamic calendar. Because the calendar is based on the moon’s cycle, the Hajj beings nine days earlier each consecutive year. IN 2014, the Hajj will start on October 2nd and last 3–4 days. During this time, Muslims from all over the world will flock to Mecca to perform the rituals and follow the steps of Muhammad, their prophet.
Thank you for your participation and may God bless you as you pray.
October: News from the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan
Moderator Rt. Rev. Peter Gai and General Secertary Rev. John Yor are on a lengthy ministry of trying to visit congregations and presbyteries throughout South Sudan. The object is to encourage the pastors and congregants to keep faith during the dark period of horrible conflict and to seek prayers for peace. We in Trinity South Sudan Ministry admire this effort and report to you that it is typial. During the early phases of the civil war, Rev. Peter litteraly stood in the door of the church compound in Malakal and through the power of Christian persuasion prevented both government and opposition forces from invading the compound and killing those who sought refuge there.
Trinity’s Sudan Ministry team seeks to financially support these visits and awaits only a specific request so that we can both comply with U.S. law and assure good stewardship of the funds which you provide.
Please pray that God will provide wisdom, protection and endurance to these church leaders as in true servant fashion they encourage the existing church and spread the good news of Christ among many “half” believers.
