“We pray for wisdom and guidance protection. We declare that no weapon formed against her will prevail and that she will not die prematurely,” Oyet prayed.
A group of Pentecostal Christian leaders all over the country converged inside the Ugandan Parliament chambers to cleanse it of what they called evil spirit following the recent chaos.
Led by renowned Pastor Julius Oyet, the leaders numbering over 100 prayed and sanctified the chambers with the blood of Jesus and also laid hands on the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
The pastors prayed that as members debate the Constitution Amendment Bill, peace will prevail and there will be no more fighting as exhibited on September 26 and 27.
"We pray that God will guide this House as it embarks on the debate on the constitutional amendment bill. We bind every spirit of chaos, confusion from this House. We pray that God's presence will reign supreme. We pray that the members find a way forward for this bill that has brought controversy," Oyet prayed as the rest of the members' chorus amen.
"We speak peace in this chamber and rotational of leaders we pray for a sober spirit as members debate the Bill and silence all other spirits in this place. We pray that whatever they do, will done with fear, peace, love, unity and respect for one another," Pastor Tony Okot from Northern Uganda prayed before he was stopped to give time for pastors to lay hands on Kadaga.
With closed eyes, Kadaga sat quietly on one of the small chairs inside the chamber as over ten pastors laid hands on her. In his prayer, Oyet said no weapon formed against her will prevail and that she will not die prematurely.
"We pray for wisdom and guidance protection. We declare that no weapon formed against her will prevail and that she will not die prematurely," Oyet prayed.
The leaders had come to Parliament to present a petition to Kadaga asking parliament to carry out a peaceful debate of the amendments.
They said they were disappointed when Parliament generated into a ring when members turned rowdy during the presentation.
Oyet said since power belongs to the people, voters should be given the opportunity to choose how they want to be governed.
After the presentation, Oyet requested Kadaga to give them the opportunity to go and cleanse the chambers. After consultation, Kadaga allowed them.
