Jules Mboka, president of the Covenant Church of Congo (CEUM), recently issued an urgent call to prayer in response to violence in the eastern region of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Fighting there has killed many and displaced an estimated 500,000 people, forcing them to flee to refugee camps for safety. Below is an excerpt from a recent Covenant Newswire story.

Mboka asks Covenanters and others worldwide to join with the Congolese pastors and leaders in a special day of prayer tomorrow (Saturday), December 1. Congo pastors will be focusing their prayer time between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Congo time.

“Get up early in the morning and join us across the miles as we press in and claim his (God’s) victory over this situation,” he requested.

Mboka specifically suggests prayer in these areas:

  • That the people of God would humble themselves and with a pure heart believe God for the victory already won.
  • That we would claim his authority through the power of the Holy Spirit to come against sin and the schemes of the devil so that our land may be healed.
  • That nothing would hinder the ministry of the church and that we would move boldly forward with the launch of the Covenant Kids Congo Ledia Program.

“As my friend, World Vision national director Bob Kisyula reminds us, whether it is in Goma or Gemena, it is the children who suffer most from conflict and poverty,” Mboka writes. “No matter the difficulty, we must remain steadfast in our commitment and redouble our efforts to minister to these children as our Lord has commanded us.”
