Gracious, loving Father, we lift up our brothers and sisters in Sudan. We pray that any new government leadership will end the persecution of the church there. We pray that in this time of uncertainty, the church will be reminded that there is no uncertainty in your nature. You, God, are still in control even when we think things are out of control. Strengthen the Sudanese Christians this day. Encourage them. Provide more opportunities for them to be a light in the darkness that surrounds them.
