Pray for YWAM in Sudan

Published on: November 6, 2023

The Invitation, November 9, 2023

In the midst of a fierce civil war in north Sudan, a YWAM team of nearly 30 Sudanese staff continue to live and serve. Before the war, which began in April 2023, most lived in and around the capital. All of these staff have moved themselves and their families to safer areas of the country. They continue to look for opportunities to serve in the midst of the war, hosting “revival” meetings in their new locations, gathering women together to encourage them and looking for opportunities for mercy ministry.

Please take a moment right now to pray for the people of Sudan and the YWAM team there, and please also pray with us on November 9, our monthly prayer day for the prayer initiative called The Invitation.

Listen to the Letter
  1. Pray for provision of food, water and medicine for the Sudanese people. Very little international aid has made it into the country due to the fighting and instability. The Sudanese people, including the YWAM team, are struggling to find their daily needs of food, water and medicine.
  2. Pray for ministry to happen in the midst of the war. YWAMers and other Christians carry the good news with them as they are displaced. Many Sudanese Christians have found themselves in remote areas, living among unreached tribes. There is an openness to the gospel and we are hearing testimonies of evangelism and discipleship.
  3. Pray for plans for mercy ministry. YWAM has been involved in mercy ministry in Sudan for the last 20 years. They are now looking for ways to distribute blankets to the displaced as the weather is getting colder in the displaced areas.
  4. Pray for the peace of the country. Both the government army (SAF) and the militia (RSF) have committed atrocities during the fighting in the last six months. Most Sudanese people are not sure who could return their country to peace. Pray for the plans of Satan to steal, kill and destroy to be frustrated. Pray for peacemakers to be raised up in the country.
