Wholehearted Living Thursdays~October 20

For awhile, some Thursdays will provide a Because of Grace Wholehearted Living Story

This week has been centered on Prayer.

Through prayer, we can transcend the physical by connecting our minds to our hearts. When you pray, simply acknowledge the truth that lies within your heart.

Bishop Julius Oyet believes God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that he can ask or think, because of the power of prayer. In 2003, Bishop Julius Oyet felt led by God to lead “Operation Gideon” in northern Uganda against a cult in northern Uganda. For seventeen years the LRA destroyed millions of innocent lives, wrecked the economy, and left thousands of homesteads burned. Almost 80% of the northern Uganda region’s population was displaced.

Through “Operation Gideon” teams of twenty-two people conducted onsite prayer vigils with pastors and leaders. These actions required the protection of the nation’s army to go into these dangerous areas. Bishop Oyet’s story is documented in a video entitled, The Unconventional War.

As a result of these actions, a great turning point in the war took place. Many of the LRA leaders surrendered and gave their lives to Jesus Christ.
