From September 21st 2010 (UN International Day of Peace) and January 1st 2011 (World Day of Prayer – Catholic Church) Solidarity with Southern Sudan (SSS) in collaboration with :

  • Catholic Relief Services (CRS)
  • Sudan Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SCBC)

is initiating a prayer campaign for peace in Sudan called “101 Days of Prayer for a Peaceful Referendum in Sudan.”

During the 101 days many prayer and peace-building activities are being planned within Sudan. We invite the international community to join in solidarity with the people of Sudan at this important time in their history. 

Please join with us and invite members of religious congregations, dioceses, parishes, schools, families, friends, JPIC and other networks to do so. The peace prayer, a booklet of prayers and reflections and other materials will be available shortly on the Solidarity with Southern Sudan website :http://www.solidarityssudan.org/

Prayer for PEA CE
in Sudan

Lord Jesus, you who said to us ;
“I leave you peace. My peace I give you.”
Look upon us your sisters and brothers
in Sudan as we face this moment
of referendum.
Send us your Spirit
to guide us.
Give us the wisdom we need to choose
our future where we will know
your true peace.
You call us out of slavery, oppression,
and persecution so that we may
have life in abundance.
Grant us peace with one another.
Give peace among ethnic groups.
Help us to work together for the good of all.
We ask this in your name,
Jesus our Lord.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
