Heavenly Father, your eye is upon the Orma people. You understand their frustration with the drought and the loss of their cattle, their livelihood for centuries. They are Your creation, beautiful people made in the image of God. In dealing with them, their eyes have been opened to the need of looking beyond Islam. They need You, Almighty God, and are willing to admit it.
To the Christian community, a sovereign God has set before them an open door to share the love of Jesus with hurting people. As they respond in tender compassion, may an adequate witness of the gospel be given. Allow the Orma to awaken to the need of finding salvation in Jesus Christ.
Secular education will be an asset to the Orma and offer some security for the future. However, may they recognize that security for eternity is available to them by simply placing their faith in the living Christ. May a tragedy be turned into a triumph; a loss into a gain and sorrow into gladness.
Thank you, Lord, for meeting the Orma at their level of need. Be glorified in this situation and may the needs of frustrated people be addressed. Jesus declared in John 16:23: "My Father will give you whatever you ask in my name...Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete." In Jesus Name we ask You, heavenly Father, to provide for the immediate security needs of the Orma and that as a people they will accept Your offer of salvation by which they will find hope for the future. Amen.
