Monthly Prayer: March 2024

Rwanda - Father Rurenga Narcisse

As we continue our journey through the Holy season of Lent, we also continue to seek and serve God through prayer, almsgiving and self-sacrifice. We look forward this month to the resurrection of our Lord, and we hope that this Lenten period will be a blessing to you as you, too, bless others.

Our prayer offering this month comes as a collection of prayers in video format. Please take a moment to watch the video below and continue to pray for the people of Rwanda and all those who we seek to support through our amazing partners.

Let us...

Give thanks that Jesus drew strength from His Father, and from Scripture, to remain strong in His time of temptation. Ask God to help sustain you also.

Pray for the people of Rwanda who have suffered much. Physical, psychological and emotional scars remain from the awful actions of the genocide 30 years ago.

Pray particularly for the women and girls who have experienced - and still suffer from - sexual and gender based violence. Pray that SCIAF’s partners are able to provide essential help and long-term support.

Pray for the Church in Rwanda and the partnerships they make with other faith-based organisations. Pray that they continue to make great strides in gender equity as they educate and work with communities.

Pray that we, as servants of God, respond with action as well as words to the injustices we see in our world.
