Lord Jesus, you said to us:
“I leave you peace. My peace I give you.”
Look upon us your sisters and brothers in Sudan
as we face this moment of referendum.
Send us your Spirit to guide us.
Give us the wisdom we need to choose our future where
we will know your true peace.
You call us out of slavery, oppression, and persecution
so that we may have life in abundance.
Grant us peace with one another. Give peace among
Help us to work together for the good of all.
We ask this in your name, Jesus our Lord.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
