Prayers Needed for the People of Sudan

We are asking you to diligently pray for the people of Sudan, in particular Central Sudan in the Nuba Mountains, Kordofan region.

With Open Eyes has Mobile Messengers (see picture below) and their families in this region that is being bombed and persecuted by the Sudan government. Below, there are links to two videos by an op-ed reporter for the NY Times, detailing the immediate need for action by our U.S. government and humanitarian aid agencies on behalf of the people of the Nuba Mountains. An American, Ryan Boyette, is featured in the two videos as a former Samaritan’s Purse worker that chose to stay behind to document the atrocities and help the people of Nuba even when all aid agencies were forced to pull out in 2011. Boyette was also part of the With Open Eyes original documentary raising awareness of the tremendous needs of the Sudanese people.

Please pray daily for the people of Sudan, listen to the news stories below, share the links, and write or call your state and local government officials.

We serve a BIG GOD that hears the cries of His people. “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27
