prayers for Kenya

“Almighty God, who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech you that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your favor and glad to do your will.

Oh God of our ancestors, we invoke Your blessing upon our new republic, embrace our nation in your arms as you did in it’s infancy.

We ask for your blessings upon the government and leaders of our nation, and on all who exercise rightful authority in our community. Instruct them out of Your law, that they may administer all affairs of state in justice and equity. Guide and foster leaders Of integrity and righteousness With the vision and courage Of our forefathers.

Unite the inhabitants of our country, of all backgrounds, persuasions and creeds, into a bond of true kinship, to banish hatred and bigotry, and to safeguard our ideals and institutions of freedom. Grant that all men will find the freedom and happiness that exists only through Your grace.

May this land under Your Providence be an influence for good throughout the world, uniting all people in peace and freedom, and helping to fulfill the vision of Your prophets:

“Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war any more.”

“For all people, both great and small,
Shall know the Lord.”

May peace and security, happiness and prosperity, right and freedom always abide among us, guarding us from war, from fire and wind, from compromise, fear, confusion.

In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in you to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Rev. Francis Omondi,
Anglican Church Of Kenya
