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.
