QUARTERLY DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING – 2020
We held our last quarterly Day of Prayer and fasting of 2020 on 7th November. We held it virtually, on whatsapp forum. However, this time, we increased time from two hours as previously to three hours duration; ie 9am to 12noon.
Invitations were sent out to all ladies who have attended our conferences and are on whatsapp. 75 attended.
Theme: Our Theme for this day was “The Responsibilities of the Righteous when the foundations are shaken” based on Psalm 11:3
Speaker: Our Devotional Speaker was Prof. Mrs. MONICA CHIBITA
Mcee: Mrs. ANITA NSHAKIRA
Technology team comprised of Ms. Musenero Prossy and Mr. Kamba Ivan
The Speaker was such an effective speaker, and challenging, too, as she reminded us of where we, as Ugandans came from, as far as our spiritual roots were concerned. The Uganda Martyrs resolved to live for Christ and honor God, and refused to live by traditional beliefs! She also pointed out as to how that resolves of the Martyrs, bathed in the East African spiritual which broke out in the 1930’s influenced our country Uganda Moto. “For God and my Country” and our National Anthem “Oh Uganda my God uphold, we —”
She challenged us about the complacence and diminished fear of God in this generation.
She pointed out the fact that these are the days when there is such familiarity with the Name of the Lord; people calling businesses eg “El Shadi— or Jehovah Shamma—” etc
She said that what is going on and more shows us, obviously that the foundations on the word of God, are being shaken.
What is the responsibility of the Righteous?
She quoted from our theme Psalm 11:1-4
“In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: Flee like a bird to your mountain? 2 For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings, to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.”
Vs 4 “The Lord is in His Holy Temple; The Lord is on His Heavenly Throne!”
This assures us that the Lord is in charge of His World. Therefore, we will not fear when the foundations are shaken. We will stand firm in Him, trust in Him and do our part of living for Him and doing exploits for Him.
We praise God and thank Him for His presence with us, both in listening to His word and learning, and for the assurance of answered prayer.
