Should a president lead citizens in a national prayer of repentance?
Uganda‚Äôs Christian president believes so
The Ugandan newssite New Vision reports President Yoweri Museveni celebrated Uganda‚Äôs 50th anniversary of independence from Britain at the National Jubilee Prayers event by publicly repenting of his personal sin and the sins of the nation.
‚ÄúI stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness,‚ÄĚ Museveni prayed....
Joseph Murphy wrote: I think the US president went on an "apology tour" that was criticized by many conservatives. How could he apologize for the "Greatest Country in the World"?
The president apologized to Muslim countries for us doing things he perceived we (U.S.) were wrong, not for things we had actually done. The president of this country confessed to God the sins of the nation not to Muslim nations he thought he offended. All of us would support the president confessing the sin of abortion and supporting the gay agenda.
We all can rejoice and give thanks God for the mighty work he has done in President Yoweri Museveni and pray for the President, the nation and people of Uganda. It's all of grace and so encouraging to see how God works as he wills and when. All praise, power and glory to our Father God and Jesus Christ.
