Join Us As We Pray For Rwanda

April is the month to ‘remember’ the Genocide of 1994 in Rwanda. 23 years later our partners at World Relief invite us to pray with them this month.

We remember Rwanda genocideGreetings All,

I hope you are all well and hope that your families are well too.

Over the years, I have always sent out an email asking for your prayers during the month of April.

Kwibuka means ‘remember’ in Kinyarwanda, Rwanda’s language. It describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

More than one million Rwandans died in the hundred days of the genocide against Tusti in 1994 and it was one of human history’s darkest times. Twenty three years later we, Rwandans, ask the world to unite to remember the lives that were lost in places where they sought refuge in what they believed would be safe havens (churches, hospitals, schools, stadium and community centers).

The church continues to unite people and reaching out to the most vulnerable that maybe a result of the genocide against the Tusti or others.  It’s in this way that we want to share with you some prayer request during this time.

Please pray for:

  • The Nation of Rwanda and it’s leadership for they have done great works to unite and develop the nation.
  • The Churches and church leaders that share the message of unity and love.
  • Pray for the people of Rwanda during this time as many of them still need comfort, love and help.
