The 17th Rwanda Prayer Banquet was held under the theme extracted from the Book of Isaiah 40:31, which says: "But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
In his message to the congregation, Rev. Dr. Charles Mugisha, the Founder of Africa New Life Organization, talked about living a purpose-driven life and urged participants to choose a firm life vision.
Bishop Darlington Johnson, a Pastor at Bethel World Outreach Ministries delivered the message that emphasized the theme of the Banquet and explained that when the Lord Almighty God gives you renewed strength, you receive God’s power and you achieve every goal you set the heart to.
Dr. Aisa Kirabo Kacyira who represented the First Lady of Rwanda, Jeannette Kagame at the event, talked about characteristics of a powerful and dedicated leader.
Kacyira urged Rwandans in diaspora to keep attached to their motherland, Rwanda.
The Head of Rwanda Prayer Banquet USA Ministry, Antoinette Kanyabutembo thanked all who participated in the event and urged them to keep united through the prayer so that Rwanda keeps blessed with the best from the Lord.
