Pray that the Nyang’atom would see the sacrifice that Jesus made for them on the cross, and they would hear His voice calling to them.
Psalm 33:18-19 says “But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.” Pray that the Nyang’atom learn to fear the LORD and see that He watches over them.
Ask God to open the eyes of the Nyang’atom to see the Light of the World (John 8:12), that they may never walk in darkness but have the light of life.
Ask God to answer the cries of the Nyang’atom with awesome deeds of righteousness so that they will turn to Him and that others living near and far will hear of His wonders (Psalm 65).

Pray that Nyang’atom come to know the Light of life, and that via His light shining through them, they will become lights to the world that cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:13)
Pray for peace between the Nyang’atom and their neighbours. Due to years of cattle raiding between tribes, tensions are high, but peace can reign.
Water is often a challenge for the Nyang’atom, they have few wells for the dry season and no way to preserve water during rainy season. Pray that more wells will be dug and that they will turn to the Living Water.
The Nyang’atom area is undeveloped – pray that health care centres and schools will be built and that these places will become avenues for the Gospel to spread in the communities.
