Global Day of Prayer to End Famine

Sunday 21st May is the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine.

UnitingWorld invite congregations to use this resource – download here, which includes a liturgy and prayer for South Sudan, as we join with the World Council of Churches (WCC), the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC) and a range of faith-based partners in response to the hunger crisis.

The liturgy and prayer for South Sudan is to assist UCA members to share their prayers for the people of South Sudan, and South Sudanese members of the Uniting Church in Australia, as their homeland, families and friends are threatened by escalating violence.

UCA Pastor Moses Leth of the Nuer UC Faith Community in Brisbane (below) asks for prayer from the wider UCA:

Armed forces are closing in on villages in Jonglei State in South Sudan in the latest development of tribal and political violence which has swept across that country over the past 17 months. This area includes the home village of UCA Pastor Moses Leth of the Nuer UC Faith Community in Brisbane. Many members of the Faith Community are from that region or have family there. There are grave fears for their home communities and Pastor Moses has sought prayers from the wider UCA for this situation, especially for the elderly, women and children, who are at great risk.
