Hundreds of people gathered at State House Entebbe for the 25th National Prayer Breakfast on Sunday. The event had the theme “Fear not, repent and serve the Lord.”

During the prayers, President Yoweri Museveni spoke to the attendees, cautioning them against practicing religion and politics based on identity. He believes that such practices can cause disunity among the people.

Museveni shared that he got the idea for a national prayer breakfast from the United States, where he had visited with a group of Ugandans, including religious leaders like Cardinal Emmanuel Wamala. He noted that in the US, people from various religious backgrounds (Catholics, Anglicans, Muslims, Orthodox) came together for similar events.

The event saw the participation of various dignitaries, including First Lady Janet Museveni, Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa, cabinet ministers, members of parliament, members of the diplomatic corps, and religious leaders. Two international guest speakers from the USA, Archbishop Dr. Joseph Alexander and Congressman Tim Walberg, were also present.

Archbishop Alexander urged Ugandan political leaders to practice “christocracy” governance and leadership. He encouraged them to use the available resources for nation-building and benefit the Ugandan people. Congressman Walberg advised Uganda not to compromise its values in the face of Western pressure.
