THOUSANDS of born-again Christians will today converge in Kampala and other parts of the country for overnight prayers ushering in the New Year.

Over 70,000 people are expected to attend the Eighth Passover Festival at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole, said Dr. Joseph Serwadda, the presiding apostle of the Born Again Faith Federation.

Thousands of Christians are also expected to attend overnight prayers at Kololo Airstrip organised by Pr. Jackson Senyonga of Christian Life Church in Bwaise.

Nakivubo Stadium is another venue for prayers organised by bishop David Kiganda of Christianity Focus Centre.

Kiganda told The New Vision that the event will be used to launch his radio station, Kingdom FM. He said he expects 50,000 people to attend.

The bishop of Namirembe, Kityo Luwalira, has also encouraged churches in the diocese to organise end of year prayers.

Overnight prayers will also take place at Pr. Robert Kayanja’s Rubaga Miracle Centre Cathedral, Mutundwe Christian Fellowship, Namirembe Christian Fellowship and Liberty Worship Centre.

Gates at Namboole open at 8:00am with a blood donation exercise conducted by the Ministry of Health. People are also encouraged to donate soap, food and other items for inmates and the needy, Serwadda said.

He listed challenges for the new year as team work spirit and honesty, noting that the world is starved of people who can be trusted.

“Marriages are crumbling for unfaithfulness. Political alliances are failing because of intrigue. Kingdoms are threatened because the vocabulary of loyalty is equated with the size of the king’s purse,” Serwadda remarked.

He said in Uganda, “corruption prowls from bedrooms to offices, from subject to chief, disciple to mentor and from church to military barracks.”

Bishop David Kiganda, the overseer of Kampala Pentecostal churches, said the prayers will focus on evils such as corruption.

He said the various challenges and evils are a result of leaders not making decisions based on the will of God.

“Time and again, we have seen several people implicated in stealing our public money but we do not really see tough measures taken against them,” Kiganda said.

Gospel artists, led by Pastor Wilson Bugembe, will entertain the Christians at Nakivubo.
