Here is a prayer from Sudan:
Lead the citizens of Sudan to become well informed
as they prepare to make critical choices that will have a far-reaching impact.
Fill their hearts anew with your Holy Spirit so that they may turn from all forms of violence.
Inspire them to honor, respect and care for one another.
As they exercise their vote, may they do so in safety.
Guide their leaders to plan and conduct a referendum that is free and open and honest.
God, who establishes justice, give Sudan courage to challenge injustice
and to work together to build a Sudan in which all have enough to eat,
where blessed peace prevails and justice is known throughout the country."
