Day of Prayer for Kenya

Posted by Sappho on January 25th, 2008 filed in Africa news and blogwatch


A friend from my Quaker meeting emailed me this announcement:

“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and turn away from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, I will forgive them and will HEAL THEIR LAND.” ( 2 Chronicles 7:14 ).

On January 25th 2008 , we are asking Every Kenyan, Every Friend of Kenyans, Everywhere to take time to make a concerted prayer for Kenya.

We want EVERY Kenyan and Every Friend of Kenyans in EVERY CONTINENT on the face of the earth to be praying together on this one day on behalf of our country.

How to participate:

  • Spread the word: send this message to Every Kenyan and Every Friend of Kenyans all over the world that you know, Everywhere – txt, SMS, e-mail, phone call
  • On January 25th, make a point of setting aside time to pray for Kenya , it does not have to be a long time but it must be a deliberate effort to pray for specific things about Kenya
  • You can pray individually, or get together with a friend or friends, workmates, someone on the street, your priest, pastor, congregation, youth group

What to pray for:

  • PEACE, PEACE, PEACE
  • Whatever else you feel in your heart to pray for concerning Kenya

‘Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; when there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.’ St Francis 1915

Kenya news: Kibaki and Odinga met for the first time since the election and shook hands yesterday, in the presence of chief mediator Kofi Annan. More news tomorrow. But please pray today.
