Christian friends of Bishop Abraham and South Sudan:
Our hearts are heavy this morning as we prepare this Sunday to worship our Sovereign and Loving God for the loss of one of our saints. Kuol Deng Kuol, the beloved paramount chief of the Nine Ngok Dinka, of the disputed region of Abyei was killed in an ambush on May 4, 2013. Abraham is the Bishop of the Diocese of Aweil and Abyei. Kuol was a personal friend of Abraham’s and both he and the South Sudanese people need our prayers today.
Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written:
Because of You we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.No, in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us.For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
Please pray for the martyred Kuol Deng Kuol and his family, Bishop Abraham Nhial, and our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters in South Sudan.
We thank God today for the prayer warriors for our South Sudanese Christian brothers and sisters.
From our hearts in Christ’s precious name,
Martha and Bill
