“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness; they will be filled.” Matthew 5:6
A common Karimojong greeting is “Akorro,” which means “hunger,” even if they have just finished a plate of food. And yet, while their spirits starve, they have no hunger for Jesus or desire to know more about Him if He won’t give them health and wealth. Please pray for God to bless the Karimojong by pouring out His Spirit of hunger and thirst for righteousness! Please pray that they will have the hunger and thirst to then eat the Living Bread that came down from heaven, and drink the water from which they will never be thirsty again and which wells up to eternal life.
Please join me in praying Isaiah 48:17-18 for the Karimojong people. That they would truly know God as their Redeemer, they would know Him as the Holy One, they would let the Holy Spirit teach them and lead them in the way they should go.
Pray that they would pay attention to His commands and as a result that righteousness would light up this region and God would be glorified in changed lives.
Pray for the people who call themselves Christian in Karamoja to preach the salvation message of Jesus Christ and not a message of good works to get into heaven. Please join us in interceding that this false gospel will lose power here and the true gospel of grace would be known and received.
Please pray for the karimojong who are seeking the truth to be protected from false teaching, and that they will reject the false teaching they have already received. It came to light that most of the engaged karimojong believe that satan sends people to hell not God, which gives him power he does not in truth possess. Many more such things are coming to light. As scripture is used to dispute lies, pray that the truth of God’s Word would find fertile soil and that the fruit would be strong and resilient against the wiles of the evil one.
Please join us in praying Isaiah 35 for the Karimojong people. We are seeing the wastelands in souls being refreshed and blossoming with the joy of the Lord. Doors are opening as never before to share about His good news and the abundance that comes from changed hearts and lives. May His glory be displayed and received. Please pray for God to strengthen those who have tired hands and hearts, and weak knees from the labors. Thank you for praying.
The kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness do not mix; they clash and display their powers. Thanks be to Jesus for He has the victory; light is not overcome by darkness. Evidence of the darkness shows in the communities about- a young man was sacrificed because he was accused of withholding the rain, then heavy rain fell, so the people feel justified in their actions. Please pray for the Light to shine.
Please join in the prayers for precious souls who have asked if they could give their lives to Jesus- may they experience Christ’s promise to reveal Himself to them. We rejoice as we see people turning to the Lord. Pray for wisdom for workers to be led in training these ones in discipleship.
God is answering prayers! A group of manyattas in the bush about 20 minutes by car from Moroto are asking for church to happen weekly. The first Sunday the missionary and his interpreter showed up, 10 men and women knelt and ask Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. They repented of their sins and desire to walk in a new life. The missionary and Lokiru John have started bible study on Thursdays. The first one, the people were ready and waiting 45 minutes before it was to start! There were about 35 or more adults wanting to learn about Jesus. Please pray that foundational truth would become life and reality for these people. The spring rains have not come, the place is like a desert, but the Lord is watering souls. Praise God for He is good, His love endures forever!
A small group of believers and seekers is meeting in Singila, Moroto. Pray for pastor Raphael and his wife Susan as they shepherd the flock. Pray for Antony, a Karimojong believer, who is being mentored by the pastor to be his assistant. Pray for the believers and seekers to attend church and Bible study faithfully. They struggle with hunger, evil spirits, and malaria, which prevent them from coming.
Please join us in praying that the Karimojong would be like the believers in Thessalonica and turn from their idols to serve the living and true God, even when it means enduring severe suffering from their fellow tribesmen for doing so. 1 Thes. 1
