4 kids who need your prayers for surgery

Join us in lifting up four kids in Uganda who have asked for your prayers for surgery. 

  • Pray for 4-year-olds Saviour and Wembabazi, two children in our Child Survival Programme who both need heart surgery for congenital heart conditions. Saviour was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot and is currently on the Uganda Heart Institute waiting list. Join us in praying that surgery slots will become available for both Saviour and Wembabazi.
  • Pray to lift up Joseph who is waiting to undergo surgery on a brain tumour. Sadly the medicine is no longer controlling Joseph’s seizures, causing him to feel more and more depressed. Joseph needs to travel with a nurse for the operation but she’s having challenges getting her passport renewed. Pray for a quickening of this process and for the surgery to go well.
  • For 14-year-old Gerald who asks for your prayers for healing following an operation. Gerald underwent an amputation on his right leg after being diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. At the moment his wounds are taking longer to heal than expected. Pray for patience, complete healing and his recovery process

 “Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you” Exodus 23:25 (NIV)
