Lectionary Text and Prayers for Kenya: Luke 7:11-17
God, we thank you for your care for those that are in precarious situations and marginalized in society. In today's Gospel reading we see that care in action as Jesus raises from the dead the only son of a widow. As we think of our partners in Kenya today, we ask that you might give them strength and courage as they demonstrate your care in their ministries. Help us to be faithful partners as we walk with them on the journey in Jesus name, Amen.
