Kenyan religious leaders have announced three days of prayer and fasting as the country moves closer to the general elections.
With only 35 days to the August 9 poll, the national prayer committee Monday called on Kenyans to take time and pray for peace before, during and after the elections.
The steering committee of the initiative organized by the clergy under the umbrella of the National Prayer Committee has invited Kenyans from all walks of life to the national prayers that will be held at Kasarani Stadium from July 28th.
According to Apostle John Kimani, who is leading the Peace Prayer Caravan, the meetings will culminate into an inter denominational prayer rally slated for Sunday, July 1 from 2 pm.
Regional prayers are ongoing across the counties with Eldoret hosting the final peace caravan next week from Wednesday.
The Committee chairperson Bishop Jesse Ireri challenged political leaders to shun selfish interests adding the current political situation calls for a stronger relationship with God.
Key highlights during the three days will be a prayer for peace and a prosperous nation together with the healing of the economy.
“We are calling all Kenyans to join hands together and pray for the will of God which is best for all of us to prevail, we are trusting God for peace before, during and after the polls,” Apostle Kimani said.
Thanksgiving prayers will be held after the polls. “ We shall have thanksgiving prayers for leaders who will be elected, and as the Church, we will pray for them faithfully,” he added.
