O Allah ! You Alone bring good things; You Alone avert evil things, and there is no might or power but in You. Please help me and the rest of Ugandans to learn to remain silent(with all the pain inside now) just as we learn to speak because silence is a great source of self-control. Help our leaders (illegitimate and legitimate) to become more interested in listening than speaking, and avoid saying things that add more salt to the injuries. Please help those with positions of power now to realise that they should not laugh or mock at those in the opposition or without power because You’re capable of taking that power away from them anytime.
Ya Allah … we all face such daily pressures to make our way in this world that sometimes we misplace our trust, hopes and fears to the people around us, like our teachers, bosses and spouses. Please allow us to trust, hope and fear no one but You. Ameen.
