Lord of all, we join our prayers to those of your children in Sudan, in their tears and pain, especially those of South Kordofan, and all who suffer conflict or violence.
God of Justice, bring your justice wherever there is strife, killing or displacement.
God of Peace, bring your peace which passes all understanding to yearning hearts.
Move the powerful to compassion and mercy, strengthen the weak even as they face persecution, and raise up the nations of this world and all people of good will in opposition to these atrocious acts.
Hasten the dawning of the day when all your children, and especially those in Sudan, can live according to your peace and harmony.
We pray this in the name of God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. AMEN
