“Prayer is essentially a partnership of the redeemed child of God working hand in hand with God toward the realization of His redemptive purposes on earth.” ~ Pastor Jack Hayford, Prayer Is Invading the Impossible.
At Africa Renewal, prayer is a vital part of our ministry and one of the most important ways that we can get involved. We believe that we will not accomplish anything of lasting value without the power of God, and that means prayer is not only essential, but it’s how we join God in His redemptive purposes. Through prayer, we can directly impact the lives of those we serve and invade the impossible problems of this world with hope and assurance.
Prayer is a vital weapon in the battle against poverty, injustice, corruption and exploitation. We have a choice to retreat from these distressing realities or to respond with hope and love. Now is the time to unite as a global body of believers in Christ, engaging with the greatest needs of our day. We entreat you to lift up families and children in need, vulnerable communities and the whole country of Uganda in prayer.
Here are four things you can pray over today, that are central to Africa Renewal’s mission:
- Children in Need: The children in Uganda today will be our next generation of leaders, and they also make up some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. Please pray for them as we work to provide for these vulnerable children.
- Vulnerable Communities: We partner with local churches across Uganda to aid vulnerable communities by empowerment, sustainability programs, and the transformational message of the gospel.
- Education and Healthcare: At the core of our mission is a commitment to healthcare and education. Pray with us so that we may provide and sustain a higher quality of life through holistic care and educational programming.
- The Gospel of Jesus Christ: Please join in praying this for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Uganda.
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places…
