Pray for the Nyang’atom community. There are 3 churches in this UPG! These churches are going on well and each church strives to fulfill the great commission. Nyangatoms are so receptive and they are the right community to impact the Toposa and Jie since they share similar language and culture. Pray for effective outreach among their own people and among the Toposa and Jie.
Pray for Joseph, a Nyang’atom believer, who we’ve assigned to help the church in Lotimor and to make more disciples in targeting to reach the Toposa. Pray for him for God’s guidance, support provisions, and the churches to grow and reach out to their neighborhoods the Toposa.
Pray for support for Pastor Joseph who wants to work with both the Nyangtom and the Toposa. Pray for Nyangatom to catch the vision for DMM and be using it in their communities.
Pray that the harmony between the Nyang’atom and many of their neighbouring tribes will be used to share the Gospel from one unreached people group to another.
Many of the Nyang’atom have never heard the Gospel; pray that as God is softening their hearts and drawing them to Him, someone will be sent to the Nyang’atom to share the Gospel with them.
Pray the churches among the Nyang’atom would see the Great Commission as a command to tell those around them the Good News, and through them their brothers in South Sudan would hear and respond to the Gospel. Pray that they would “tell of the kindness of the Lord and the deeds for which He is to be praised” (Isaiah 63:7).
Pray that the Christians among the Nyang’atom living in Ethiopia will use what they have to share the Gospel with their family and friends, especially those living across the international border in South Sudan.
Pray that a Gospel movement may come from the Nyang’atom church.
May the churches in Nyang’atom believe the Great Commission and take the message to the Toposa and other surrounding tribes as they obey.
May the Nyang’atom believer continue steadfast in the Word. ‘Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.’ (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)
Pray for the believers who live among the Nyang’atom on the South Sudan and Ethiopia sides of the border – that they would be bold with sharing their faith and through this a community of believers would be started that would bring peace to the Nyang’atom community.
