Father of love and mercy, You created our people from every clan, tribe and nationality. It is your will that all our people should live in harmony, peace and unity, because we are all brothers and sisters. We ask forgiveness for the times we failed to live together in peace. Heal our offenses and help us to reconcile With one another. Grant to our leaders your divine wisdom and help us to promote respect, justice and true reconciliation, so that the people of South Sudan may live in unity and peace. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
