Church of Uganda launches 2022 family prayer guide


By Justine Namara

The Province of Church of Uganda, through the Provincial Mothers Union and Family Life Office, has today launched the family prayer guide for 2022, with a call to families to dedicate more time to praying together and establishment of family prayer altars.

The event held at the Provincial Secretariat in Namirembe today, January 12,2022, Rev Canon Titus Baraka, the Director of Missions and Outreach in Church of Uganda who represented the Archbishop called for special prayers for those in positions of spiritual leadership and those that intercede for the Church and for children as they go back to school.

“This prayer guide is to help us pray for families. We need to pray for our spiritual leaders and intercessors. The temptations are many but only with prayer, they can overcome. We encourage families to begin family prayer altars to pray for their children, so that God guides and protects them in a way that gives Him glory and honour,”  Baraka said.

“The prayer guide has a weekly guide on how to read the Bible, what passages to read and how to pray. I encourage each one of you in your family to get a copy so that you can lead your children, your husband or wife into prayer every day,” she said.

She added: “Our theme is based on the Provincial Theme: Hope beyond affliction, Lamentations 3:21-24. I pray that you will be reminded that even with all afflictions you have gone through, our God remains God and will always take care. He is loving and faithful.”

She also said that the prayer guide will be launched in all parts of the Province and sliplets will be shared every week to remind families of what is in the book and how to use it with families.

Church of Uganda Provincial Mothers Union and Family Life Office has previously produced other key guides including; positive parenting guide, premarital counselling guide and the lady or gentleman of honour.
