Pray & Fast for Hope


"Hope for the freedom of the children of God." That is the theme of the Commemoration Prayers tomorrow. It has been 10 years since the LRA abducted 139 girls from St. Mary Aboke Boarding School and the bereaved parents came together to form CPA. Every year on October 10th people return to the school to pray and fast for peace, for healing for this land and people, and for the return of the children who are still in captivity. We will be in Aboke tomorrow and invite you to join us in the prayer and fasting in the hope that freedom can come.

i'll be beside you in prayer and fasting tomorrow...solidarity is powerful, right!?! "remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also." (hebrews 13:3)...love you, kellen

How cool, just last night God told me to pray for peace. I was asking him what to pray for you, Holly, and he told me to pray for peace. So I will pray alongside you. I won't be fasting because I'm still nursing Samuel--and he drinks a lot!, but I'll be praying with you. Love, Nickie

I'm a few days late in reading your post, but kneeling with you today. My heart was yearning & pleading for peace & healing in my prayers this morning & will continue to be. Thanks for inviting us along.
