KAMULI DISTRICT, Uganda — Humanity has always relied on prayer as a source of guidance and connection with God.
Podcast: The transformative power of prayer: How devotional gatherings are taking root in Uganda
An interview with representatives of a community in Uganda explores how collective prayer is influencing society at large.
In the latest episode of the Baha’i World News Service podcast, Charles Oloro and Michael Okiria from Uganda speak about how growing numbers of people are attending regular gatherings for collective prayer and experiencing its transformative power. Known as devotional gatherings, these spaces are open to all people in a community and free of ritual; no one person has a special role. The gatherings are also offering people in the community space to discuss their spiritual and material needs.
“We are seeing this new culture of friends coming together and turning to God to actually seek guidance for whatever is happening in their communities,” Mr. Oloro says. “Any soul can come to this space and inhale these heavenly fragrances.”
