We thank God and give Him the glory for the success. He gave us on our quarterly National Day of Prayer, 27 October 2018 at Namirembe Resource Centre (NAREC) the attendance was encouraging! We were twenty seven participants- three quarter of these being young women of excellence. The theme of the day was drawn from Isaiah 22:4 “…let me weep bitterly. Do not try to console me over the destruction of my people.” 

       Our first Devotional speaker was Rev. Moses Ahimbisibwe of All Saints Cathedral Nakasero Kampala Diocese He encouraged us to weep over the destruction of our people in Uganda because a lot is going on that is destroying our people, especially the young people.
He also encouraged us to pray for our leaders, to begin with, “Parliament because it’s the heart of the Nation”. If the Parliament (heart) is sick, then the whole Nation is sick! Such truths were a strong motivational force for our concern to prayer. We prayed for leaders from as many sectors as we were able to. We prayed for the Church of Jesus Christ which is the custodian of God’s truth in the society.

        Our second speaker was Dr. Irene Lubega a researcher in Pediatrics at John Hopkins University centre at Makerere University. Her emphasis was on “How we should pray effectively “prerequisite to this is; Aright relationship with God i.e. having a humble repentant heart- which is clean. We then should pray according to the Lord’s instructions in Mat. 7:7-8, Ask and it will be given to you, Seek and you will find & Knock and the door will be opened to you”
One of the new things she taught us was the various Hebrew words describing “Praises to God” during our time of worship and praise! Very interesting!

        The other thing we did at one point during the day of prayer was we took a moment to observe silence in memory of our beloved sister who went to be with the Lord late Dr. Sheila Ndyanabangi- She would always make time to come and minister to us whenever called upon her, we miss her though we know that she is in the wonderful place with the Lord whom she loved and served diligently.

 “To God be the glory for the successful Day of Prayer & Fasting”
