Forgive

When we humble ourselves and confess to our Lord Jesus and our people, then can we hope and believe our land will be at peace.

I pray for the safety of the men in our Army who are putting their lives on the line to secure our safety.

A few years ago in Dar es Salaam, a group of youth from Uganda visited our church. And a young man in the group stood up, and asked us, an Indian Church in Tanzania for forgiveness. For those who don't know, during the time of Iddi Amin, all Indians in Uganda were asked to leave the country and all their property was taken away. Many tragedies took place because of that.
It was a unique experience, my daughter who was quite young and did not know anything about the incident was touched by the cry for forgiveness, and rose from her seat and went up to hug the young man and offered forgiveness.
It was awesome like the hand of God reached down to soothe His child.

Much like the truth and reconciliation movement that took place in South Africa.

As you read this, I pray you will join me and pray that our land will find peace, that you will forgive us for not being able to keep your loved ones secure.

My heart cries out to Jesus for your children, fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters who have been terrorized, hurt and killed on our soil. Pray that it wont happen again, pray for our military that they will be safe to continue secure our safety.

As Christians we must realize, we are gentiles, the Jews are our brothers, and Muslims our cousins, when all three of us learn to live in peace in Jesus, we will be free indeed....pray for this day.
