CPA Praying Together 14.04.20

Please join us and feel free to pass on to friends

Jehovah Shalom, Lord of Peace, we pray for those currently living in isolation and fear. May they know your presence in their isolation, your peace in their turmoil, and your patience in their waiting. Prince of Peace, you are powerful and merciful.

In these unprecedented times in which we are living, feel free to use this short update to help you pray for our friends in Africa.

  • Many will be unable to gather in their churches to celebrate the risen Lord, pray that they will know the presence of Jesus and His comfort at this time.
  • Every day will bring the everyday toil and survival for many. Pray that individuals, families and communities will know some form of Sabbath Rest and a restoration of mind, body and soul.
  • Continue to pray for wise and discerning leadership by both community and national leaders and their governments: President Sahle-Work Zewde of Ethiopia; President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda; President Faustin-Archane Touadera of Central African Republic; Prime Minister Saadeddine Othmani of Morocco; President Abdul Fattah el Sisi of Egypt.
  • Please continue to pray for the Komamboga children and their families in lockdown in Kampala. We have heard that some of the young adults have moved in together for mutual support.
  • Please pray for the children, guardians, project workers, teachers and social workers in Rukungiri.
  • Pray provision for Bishop Benon and the North Kigezi Diocese (of which St Paul’s School is a part) as they try to support 500 needy families who face starvation.

Bishop Benon says, “The Country now is also in total lockdown. This hasn’t only affected the businesses but also daily bread earners especially families who grow foods to sell and these families are now doing badly with no food to survive on during this lockdown. With children from schools going back home, some families are now going hungry or surviving on a single meal. People are completely confined in their homes.

Thank you for your cooperation as you stand with us in prayers.”

May El Shaddai, the Lord God Almighty, who loves us, protect us and our African friends.

May Jesus Christ His Son, who died for us, save us.

May the Holy Spirit, who broods over the chaos and fills us with his presence, intercede for us and in us, for others at this time. Amen.

Thanks for praying with us.
