Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 6: Prayer 
Ida went to Budumba to review the previous Bible lessons in order to find out the knowledge and understanding of the lessons taught so far. The preview was well attended or answered which gave Ida a reason to begin a new topic (PRAYER) Ida asked the community what they knew about the word prayer, David said that prayer is the way people communicate with God. Sanyo said that those are memorized verses from either the Bible or Koran. Otim said that prayer are gospel songs. Ruth said that prayer is some kind verse from the Bible led by a man. Nangobi said that prayer is medicine. So Ida thanked all who gave answers and told them that all of were right according to what they think and see. She continued saying that prayer is a two way communication with God and us His people. There is no way you can talk to God except through prayer and He also talks to us through His word the Bible. We are all entitled to speak with God (men, women and children) It’s not only men or women or priests to speak on our behalf. We were given authority to speak to our God just as we speak to our friends. Ida said she agrees with Nangobi who said that prayer is medicine, many people in the Bible prayed and were answered and healed. Hannah prayed and was blessed with Samuel, the tax collector was forgiven and many others. Before we go to witch doctors let’s ask or pray to God to give us wisdom. Let’s teach to prayer this will teach them to speak to God by themselves not thinking that only dad, mom and pastors are the only ones responsible for praying. Ida encouraged parents to always make turns when praying, include children and mothers to lead prayers.
