General Secretariat
To the World Council of Churches member churches and central committee members
Letter inviting a special day of prayer for the South Sudan peace process
The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective James 5:16b
We greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In April this year, the Word Council of Churches (WCC) in collaboration with the South Sudan Council of Churches convened twenty church leaders and representatives from South Sudan and Ethiopia, along with related agencies, in Addis Ababa, to reflect on the tragic situation of conflict in South Sudan, the recent collapse of peace talks among the parties to the conflict, and fresh ways forward.
The crisis in South Sudan erupted in mid-December 2013 when political debates on reforms within the ruling Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM) Party turned violent. As a result of the crisis, tens of thousands of people have been killed, more than one million have been internally displaced, close to a million have been forced to flee to neighboring countries to take refuge, and close to four million people are threatened by hunger and disease. As the violent conflict moves into its 17th month, the South Sudanese are waiting in excruciating pain for the return of peace.
On the foundation of the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, the WCC, represented among others by general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit and Dr Agnes Abuom, moderator of the WCC Central Committee, invited the Heads of Churches from South Sudan immediately after the collapse of the peace talks (6 March 2015) to consult on the practical advocacy action that they have to undertake to bring back the warring parties to the negotiating table and settle their differences.
The Heads of Churches have now developed a pastoral letter with a powerful message to the warring parties, the mediators and the international community to end the war in South Sudan. The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) are preparing to launch a new mediation panel, called IGAD-Plus, which is to include Algeria, Chad, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Africa. And the Heads of South Sudanese Churches are planning to meet the leaders of the different parties, the IGAD mediators, regional leaders, regional and international church bodies, and the international community to impress on them the urgency of stopping the killing at this defining moment in the life of a new nation.
Therefore, the WCC invites its member churches and Christians worldwide to offer special prayers on Sunday, 10 May, to restore hope to all people affected by this situation of conflict, and to strengthen all well-intended initiatives.
A service of common prayer has been developed as a helpful resource for parishes and congregations, which includes a prayer, hymn and photo-slideshow on the theme of life in South Sudan. These can all be adapted according to the different calendars, liturgical styles and church traditions, and can be found at: Day of prayer for the South Sudan peace process.
As we are called to pray without ceasing, let us together lift our voices in longing for justice and peace.


Yours in our Common Lord,

Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit
WCC General Secretary

Dr Agnes Abuom
Moderator of the WCC Central Committee
