Praise and Honor to the Holy One of Israel!!
From Last Sundays Communication we are as a Nation now, entering a fifty days fast beginning 19th August to 07th October 2016. The FAST Will be Launched Friday 19th Aug. by the Vicar Rev. Canon Diana M Nkesiga assisted by Rev John Musa beginning 5:30pm with a Service to be followed by an overnight.
From 2012 Uganda as a Nation entered her Season of Jubilee, we re-dedicated our Nation Back to the God of our Fathers Abraham, Isaac & (Jacob) Israel. We have a fast every year for the nation in a particular aspect. This year we are taking the Fast & Prayer Because of;
THE FAMILY IN RELATION to the Spheres of influence in Society: Psalms 22:27-28.
These are:- Education, Communication or Media, Leadership & Governance, Business, Celebration & Arts, Culture & Social Services. Then the Body of Christ & the Great Commission.
- We all know that if a Family is destroyed the Nation is destroyed!! In the Bible there are Times that A FAST has been called for:
Our Lord Jesus Christ Took a Forty Days Fast in the Wilderness before the beginning of his Ministry Mathew 4:1-25
- John the Baptist and His Disciples used to Fast. However notably in the Book of ESTHER chapters 3,4,5 Following When Harman wanted to annihilate the Jews Queen Esther Called for a fast to save her people. We would like to take this time to pray & save the institution of the Family, hence saving the Nation of Uganda.
