The following article is from The East African Newspaper, and I wanted to share it with you to ask you to set aside some time for Saturday to not just be a Kenyan National Day of Prayer but also a Global Day of Prayer-- especially for the Children of the Kingdom and their families in this unprecedented time.
"Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has declared Saturday a National Day of Prayer amid the worldwide outbreak of the new coronavirus.
Mr Kenyatta made the declaration Tuesday, the same day the minister for Health announced that Kenya now has four cases of Covid-19, which has killed thousands of people across the globe.
On Saturday, the President said Kenyans will pray to God in their homes, with a small group of religious leaders congregating at the State House in Nairobi.
“We cannot ignore the need to turn to God. In these circumstances as we have done in the past as a nation, we have always turned to God first to give thanks for the many blessings that He has bestowed on our nation.
"But we also turn to God to share our fears, our apprehensions, but also to seek his guidance and ever-present protection,” the President said.
He said that in God, Kenyans had a place to turn to amid Covid-19 virus, which has been declared a global pandemic."
"God is always there,
if you feel wounded.
over this earth like
a divine medic,
and His love thaws
the holy in
- St. Teresa of Avila
Let us pray for God to come, tend to our hearts and heal our land
and for His love to thaw the holy in us and in our world
and to show us how we can be a part of that healing.
