Prayer Altars

Prayer is our incense to heaven, but don’t let the analogy fool you.  Prayer is more than a wisp of smoke or a breath on the wind.  It is concrete and bricks, the solid building blocks of the kingdom of God.  Prayer is also very hard work.

‘I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.” (Ezekiel 22:30-31, NIV)

This is not a job for one man or one ministry or even one denomination.  It will take all of us to fight the good fight of faith and stand in prayer for our nation.  Whether it is Uganda, America or where ever you live, we encourage you to first set up a prayer altar in your home; a place where you pray regularly.  Then set up an altar in your church where people gather together for prayer.  Eventually seats of government will ask us to set up prayer altars in their offices.  That’s what happened to Shem Mabongor and the team he prays with.  The mayor of Mbale asked them to set up a tent in the mayor’s garden for the purposes of praying for the town and even the mayor himself (who is not a Christian).

We are looking forward to setting up prayer altars in every subcounty in Uganda.  This is a united effort with plenty of room for you to join in.  Help us . . .
