Needing to hear

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.

May the church reach out

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).

Sharing across borders

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.

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

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 boldness to bring peace

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.

To fear the LORD

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.
