Pray for our incredible supporters running marathons in Rwanda and Uganda today

Today's the day! A team of 23 athletes in Rwanda and Uganda are walking, cycling or running the race of their lives to raise money for Compassion and see lives changed. These amazing Compassion supporters are taking part in the Muskathlon running a half, full or ultra-marathon, cycling 120km or walking 60km. 

Please pray for each and every athlete as they push themselves to their limits in extreme conditions. Ask God to give them the strength to complete the challenge! Pray for the group of walkers who will be trekking until late this afternoon UK time. 

Join us in lifting up those who have already completed their races - pray for a quick recovery. 

"He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:29-31
