Prayer

Prayer is such a huge part of God working in Uganda. Without prayer much of the ministry could not exist. Prayer is how God chooses to work in this world. We are trying to teach Tim how to pray. At bedtime we say a prayer and have him repeat key words back. Each night we say, "Jesus, thank you for ____ and help ____. Amen." We try and thank Him for something Tim knows and appreciates and then we ask Jesus to help someone we know is in need. If we don't have a specific request on our mind we look at our prayer map. We have hung up missionary prayer cards around the different places where they serve. Tim prays for the different kids who are serving with their parents.

Last night we had the chance to host a "Uganda Prayer Night." We had an excellent time of prayer. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of our group but we had a good turn out. We had 10 people who came to lift up the needs of Uganda and to pray for its people. I know many of you would have been with us if you could, so I wanted to pass along our prayer requests and ask that you take a few moments this week to pray over this list. Thanks for joining us!
