Worshippers at Namboole Stadium

By John Agaba

Thousands attending end of year prayers at Nakivubo Stadium in Kampala Tuesday night heard that 2014 will be a year of peace and prosperity.


Bishop David Kiganda, the founder of the Christianity Focus Ministries, preaching at the national prayer day, prophesied that 2014 will be a year of blessings and a year of breakthroughs for Ugandans.

He predicted less strife, less hunger and less poverty and said, compared to 2013, 2014 will be a year of peace and prosperity and economic transformation.

Kiganda prayed for President Yoweri Museveni. He asked God to give Museveni enough wisdom and courage and strength to transform the country economically.

He said Uganda needs to have good roads, good railways, good hospitals, and good schools.

“Lord bless him. Guide him. Give him wisdom to carry Uganda forward. Guide his advisors to advise him well,” prayed Kiganda.

He prayed for good governance, fairness, justice and peace in the country. He asked God to protect the country from HIV/Aids, which he said has slain hundreds and continued to slay many.

He asked Kampala leaders to come to a round table and resolve their differences. He said we need a city “free of tear gas.”

The 8th Annual National Prayer Day started as early as 9:00 am on the morning of December 31. Many attended the prayers. There was Justice Richard Buteera, General Benon Biraro, Ndorwa West legislator David Bahati, among the high profile presences.

Kiganda asked the masses to turn around and face into the direction of South Sudan. He then asked them to raise their hands into the air and pray for a country which has been at war for about two weeks now.

“Over 1000 people have died,” he prayed. “We need to prophecy peace in South Sudan. Lord, we declare peace in South Sudan. Let their leaders come to a round table and resolve their differences.”

He said a similar prayer for Libya, Syria, Somalia, and Egypt.

Though the masses had started flocking the stadium early in the morning, it was not about 9:00 pm that the stadium got lively. With Pastor after Pastor getting onto the stage and praising the Lord and different choirs dancing, it was a night worthy the name ‘the last day of 2013’.

The Kampala North Police operations commander, Sam Omalla, sent many in the crowd cracking their ribs when he asked for a microphone from Kiganda and started preaching.

The prayers would go on till the wee hours of December 1, 2014.
