Since MAF began flying in South Sudan in 1950, we have seen great need, ongoing unrest and suffering, and the need for God’s peace and reconciliation. Will you pray for this nation?


What can I pray for?

Urgent prayer needs:
  • The ongoing unrest which has forced 1.1 million people to be displaced in their own nation and a further 387,000 to flee the country.
  • The impending severe famine meaning 3.9 million people face the threat of food insecurity.
  • The response of the international community to the humanitarian crisis. Pray it will be timely and sufficient.
  • The rainy season has cut off parts of the country, making access difficult. There is barely any infrastructure and insecurity is a real issue. Pray that food aid and medical care can reach those in greatest need.
  • Women and girls are at particular risk of violence and abuse in conflict situations. Pray for God's hand of protection.
  • As for MAF, the demand for flights is stretching us to full capacity in what is already a tough environment to live and work in. Pray for strength and wisdom.


The nation:
  • Pray for the Church as they seek to bring peace and reconciliation.
  • Pray for the government to rule wisely, justly and selflessly.
  • Pray for genuine transformation in the hearts of people deep in a culture of cattle. raids and revenge to peace and the will to build and develop the nation.
  • Pray for peace and unity within and with neighbouring countries.



  • Pray for safety in flying and wisdom to discern airstrip conditions in the rainy season.
  • Pray for strength for our growing team and those we partner with. The heat is relentless and stifling.
  • Pray for good relations with the authorities.
  • Pray for wisdom to prioritise which flights are most urgent.
