General Overseer of the National Alliance of Pentecostal and Evangelical Churches in Uganda and senior pastor of Grace Assembly Church Bishop Joshua Lwere was among several leaders who on Saturday graced the second National Prayer Day to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hosted by President Yoweri Museveni together with the First Lady and Minister for Education and Sports, Mrs Janet Museveni, the prayer event was conducted under the theme ‘God’s power is complete’ inspired by Psalms 46:10.
Bishop Joshua Lwere used his prayer to reveal that Uganda is faced with a ‘pandemic greater than Covid-19.’
Read the full prayer below:
‘Lord we pray that you will raise godly men who will be in-charge of this economy. Lord we ask that you help us to get over this pandemic greater than COVID19, and that is the pandemic of corruption, that has hindered every progress that we have sought. May you visit us in a special way.
Lord, we feel so bad that our resources are being squandered every single day; even what we would have used to help ourselves, because of this pandemic (corruption), we can’t. It is only you who can help us.
It is only you who can raise incorruptible leaders among us. Help us appreciate that it is only through integrity and truth and honesty that we can build a nation. Help us to genuinely repent of this evil of corruption.
Root it out from our communities. Root it out from our families and government: in public service. Help us Lord because we seem to be helpless to fight it. And our economy cannot prosper without defeating it. We need you more that we have ever needed you before. We need your help oh Lord our God.’
