Answered Prayers: Help for Africa

Many of you participated in “PF 21 ending child soldiers” this summer. Spending 21 days in Prayer and Fasting asking God to end the conflict with the Lord’s Resistance Army in central Africa. The LRA had terrorized four countries, murdered, raped and abducted women and children forcing them to become soldiers for over 20 years.

This summer several miracles have happened to bring justice, hope and compassion to countries afflicted by the LRA. Organizations that have been fighting to protect communities from the LRA have made miraculous progress.

  • Invisible Children has established Radio towers throughout central Africa to  help communities report and detect when the LRA enters in villages. Assisting the community in finding shelter.
  • Resolve Uganda has helped set up LRA Crisis Tracker. The tracker reports activity that the LRA has done on a daily basis. “The LRA Crisis Tracker is a real-time mapping platform and data collection system created to bring an unprecedented level of transparency to the atrocities of the Lord’s Resistance Army.” Provided by Resolve.
  • US sends 100 Special Forces Advisers to help governments in central Africa and keep communities safe from the LRA.

These are major events that happened to help the women, children and families of Africa. But we cannot stop here with our prayers for these countries. On the 21st of every month we will fast and pray for the end of this conflict and for children trapped into becoming child soldiers and for families caught in the horrors of war. God will continue to hear our prayers and answer them for people in Africa.

Our prayers:

Children would be protected from the LRA and communities protected from cross-fires during conflict.

That the war would end, and real peace and healing would happen.
