Tearfund: Living Water Day 16
LIVING WATER: East Africa Crisis Appeal
Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. (Psalm 55:17)
What do you do when facing suffering of an almost unimaginable scale?
That’s the current situation in East Africa. Successive droughts, often combined with conflict, have left 16 million people in urgent need of food, water and medical care.
Famine has already been declared in parts of South Sudan, and Somalia is likely to experience famine this year. Parts of Kenya and Ethiopia are rapidly heading towards crisis stage.
It can seem as though we are powerless in the face of situations such as these – but we’re not. We have a God who hears our prayers; whose heart is broken by the cries of His people.
Prayer can move heaven and change nations. Our first response to suffering should always be prayer – evening, morning and noon. Please join with us today as we pray for East Africa.
Thank you that you hear our prayers.
Today as one people we cry out for East Africa.
We pray for your protection and your provision
For all who are vulnerable.
We pray that your Mighty Hand will rest upon these nations;
That dry lands will be quenched with rain,
And that the fires of conflict will be extinguished
By your peace.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
