A Politician Repents in Public. Is This a Miracle, or What?

Written by Gary North on November 26, 2012

We don’t see this in the news very often.

The president of Uganda has confessed the sins of their nation. Let’s hope heads of nations around the world imitate him.

Father God in heaven, today we stand here as Ugandans, to thank you for Uganda. We are proud that we are Ugandans and Africans. We thank you for all your goodness to us.

I stand here today to close the evil past and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness.

We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation.

We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal.

Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict.

These sins and many others have characterised our past leadership, especially the last 50 years of our history. Lord forgive us and give us a new beginning. Give us a heart to love you, to fear you and to seek you. Take away from us all the above sins.

We pray for national unity. Unite us as Ugandans and eliminate all forms of conflict, sectarianism and tribalism. Help us to see that we are all your children, children of the same Father. Help us to love and respect one another and to appreciate unity in diversity.

We pray for prosperity and transformation. Deliver us from ignorance, poverty and disease. As leaders, give us wisdom to help lead our people into political, social and economic transformation.

We want to dedicate this nation to you so that you will be our God and guide. We want Uganda to be known as a nation that fears God and as a nation whose foundations are firmly rooted in righteousness and justice to fulfill what the Bible says in Psalm 33:12: Blessed is the nation, whose God is the Lord. A people you have chosen as your own.

I renounce all the evil foundations and covenants that were laid in idolatry and witchcraft. I renounce all the satanic influence on this nation. And I hereby covenant Uganda to you, to walk in your ways and experience all your blessings forever.

I pray for all these in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Next step: civil justice. That’s the hard part.

  1. Don't think the muslim leaders will follow suite. The muslim leader of the United States of America has declaired "We are no longer a christian nation"

  2. The Muslim leader of the United States of America is correct. We have not been what can legitimately be called a Christian nation since Amendment 1's polytheistic provision for the freedom of religion was adopted by the States (in rebellion to their God themselves) in 1789. With the ratification of the First Amendment, America went from what was predominately one united nation under God to a divided nation under many gods. Since 1789, America has become the most polytheistic nation to exist, with the possible exception of the Roman Empire.

    For more, see the online Chapter 11 "Amendment 1: Government-Sanctioned Polytheism" of "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline…. Also, don't miss our Constitution Survey in the right-hand sidebar.

  3. he may find out differently in the near future

  4. Might be just “myopinion”, but since our President is, was, and always has been a practicing Christian, you’re a dumbass.

  5. Our constitution had always provided for freedom of religion, and freedom FROM religion. Get over it.

  6. He sure has a weird way of showing that he is Christian! Sure could have fooled me…… and many others.

  7. Sorry shane, our prez. was raised in the muslim faith – Indonesia as a young boy. For saps like you he joined J.Wright's "church" which is not your average Catholic Church, so YOU could say he is a Christian but neither one is true Christianity. From what I understand no muslim changes his faith. Not allowed. Did you ever see his wedding ring? Did you hear him speak ( Arabic ) in Egypt when he was first elected in '09. He is very fluent in the language and has the accent down to a tee. This is a great tactic to peace and becoming friendly with our enemies. Being able to speak their language and all… except Al-coo-coo's terror network has grown larger since bo spoke to them and killed their leader. Yea, they went from occupying two countries ( 2008 ) to now occupying 30 countries. I guess he did not spend enough time in Indonesia and must have pronounced his words wrong – instead of saying "Peace" he said "Feast". BTW – Our Constitution does NOT state freedom FROM religion. It is freedom OF. Go read it.

  8. This is something that I can imagine a real man doing which is why I never expect to see Obama doing anything even remotely close.

  9. That's where we went wrong – not trusting on Yah.

  10. David Hodges says:

    I applaud the president of Uganda for being repentant. However, I would like to know more about this "sin" of tribalism, Bible answer, please. I wonder if the president of Uganda looks forward to the day when "every man shall turn to his own people and flee to his own land," according to Isaiah 13: 14? When that prophecy is fulfilled, we will once again esteem the "kind after kind" concept. We will appreciate the admonition, "Don't take their daughters unto thy sons, don't give thy daughters unto their sons." Esau believed in "unity in diversity." "And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah."–Genesis 26: 34, 35. Edom (descendants of Esau) is mongrelized and wishes to break Jacob's yoke by enticing him (Jacob) to join him (Esau) in disobeying God and becoming mongrelized also. It sounds like the president of Uganda has figured out what to say to get on the good side of the Edomites, who now have the dominion, according to Genesis 27: 40.

  11. Sin = Transgression of His Law. Can't find a Law of His against being of a tribe. Benjamin was nearly wiped out by the rest of the Tribes of Israel due to Benjamin's sin of acquiescence to major sin, with The Almighty's OK (Judges 20: 28). Is that "tribalism" ? However, it must be according to His Laws, Statutes and Judgments.

    Oh that America would be even close to such repentance! Then He will cause Edom to fall from his height. And there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of Yahweh of hosts in that day. Zechariah 14: 21.
