SILVER JUBILEE CELEBRATION PREPARATION PRAYER
Theme: Celebrating 25 years of Excellence in the Footsteps of the Uganda Martyrs.
Lord God Almighty, we thank you for the gift of the Uganda Martyrs you gave to our country Uganda to inspire and intercede for us. We thank you for the Uganda Martyrs University which was named after the 24 Catholics Uganda Martyrs. As we prepare for the Silver Jubilee celebration, we pray for your continued protection, guidance and providence, so as to move into the future with faith and confidence.
We pray that you may bless our University, bless the Uganda Episcopal Conference, all our founders and all our benefactors, parents and well-wishers. Bless the Governing Council and the Management team of this University. Bless the staff, students and the alumni of this University. Bless and guide those who are preparing to join this institute of higher learning.
Lord, give us the grace to continue loving the Uganda Martyrs so that we may emulate them. As the Uganda Martyrs walked in the footsteps of Christ, we pray that this celebration may help us to walk more firmly in the footsteps of the Martyrs, so that we may be resilient witnesses of the Risen Christ; whereby in virtue and wisdom we will lead the world. Lord, we pray that we may make a difference, that the products of Uganda Martyrs University may be known by their fruits.
Lord, grant eternal rest to our departed founders, parents, benefactors, staff, alumni, friends and students. May the Virgin Mary Queen of the Martyrs and the Uganda Martyrs intercede for us. Lord God, grant our prayer through Jesus Christ your Son who lives and reigns forever and ever.
