Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food… yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he enables me to go on the heights (Habakuk 3:17-19).
We pray that the ladies would not feel pressured by their churches, agencies, friends (or themselves) to be producing ´successful´ work in their area, but that they would follow closely after You instead. You are the vine, the source of all things. You work in Your own way, on Your own timeframe, and You value many things other than numbers and accomplishments. Help these women to know this and to resist the pressure to perform in certain ways. Help them to be honest in their sharing about ministry, and give them opportunities to share how they have grown in their knowledge and love of You.
Thank you Lord that Uganda is the first country in the world to cut their massive AIDS problem in half! Both government and churches faced up to the terrible calamity and have successfully worked to achieve this reduction. We praise You for the renewed revival from 1986 onwards. We ask You Lord for the church’s loving unity, continued renewal, and training up of a new generation of leaders. We pray for effective youth programs in churches that will raise up a new generation of followers in You.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
