Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of : When Uganda, a prayerful nation prays for materialism(cars, mansions , corporate jobs etc) and dominionism : When Christians keep silent about corruption, greed, sound doctrine and holiness .

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, ….unholy,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.(2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

A scholar famously said 'Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.

As the world ushered in the New Year, thousands, perhaps millions Ugandans, in utter contrast to the usual festivities of December 31, converged at prayer sites for thanksgiving and soul searching. We bring you what transpired in pitcures.

Thousands of Christians on Wednesday (December 31)   trekked to Bat valley sports ground for the end of year over night prayers organized by Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of the House of Prayers Ministries.
By 9pm, the queue to the entrance was past Teachers House along Bombo road but as the adage goes that when the going gets tough, only the tough get going, many decided to camp outside and in a bid to follow the proceedings.
“It was hard to get inside and I decided to pray from outside. With the presence of loud speakers and the projector screens I will be able to follow the proceedings,” said Dorah Namusisi .

In a special New Year prayer animated by Pastor Bujingo, he asked the Almighty  for wisdom, strength and courage to complete the targets in the New Year.
“This is time for all of us to write down our dreams and visions for the coming year and present them to the Almighty. We need to have a fruitful year and this we can only due if we ask for the mercy of God,”Bugingo noted.
“Vision night is a moment for total dedication by all Christians to present their plans with faith to the lord surely knowing they will achieve their goal”
According to the man of God, many Christians who have in the past presented their visions have always lived to testify how they have been achieved.

As has become the norm, tens of thousands of Ugandans gathered for prayers at various arenas and stadia, to welcome the New Year 2015.
In Kampala, the major praying events were at Nakivubo stadium, Kololo Independence grounds, Mandela National Stadium and in Bukalango.

At Kololo, American-based Pastor Jackson Senyonga of Christian Life Church in Bwaise crossed more than 20,000 believers into the New Year.
The event proceeded through the wee hours amidst tight security, by Uganda Police and the UPDF which currently inhabits the grounds.
Pastor Senyonga held prayers for peace and stability in the New Year, and asked God to protect Ugandans in the year that is packed with so much political activity.
He however skipped his usual practice of holding special prayers for President Yoweri Museveni, which is normally done by pastors and leaders laying hands on the president’s portrait.

“We know that the coming year is going is a busy one and somehow volatile, preceding the 2016 general elections. It is a year of campaigns, and a lot of politicking and we know that that often comes with challenges,” stated Senyonga.
“We want to pray and believe that God will see us through 2015, without chaos or economic hardships. It will be a year of peace, stability and development.”
