Lectionary Selection: John 17:20-26
Prayers for Kenya:
Lord, we praise your name forever and ever. You are the Lord of Kenya. Jesus, we love you and we claim victory of the cross for Kenya. It is you that Kenya needs, it is you that Kenya loves and adores, you are the comforter, the perfect one. God, we pray that you wipe away the tears of Kenyans.
In its priority, Kenya wants to put you in the first place. Kenya finds its source and purpose in you. We seek the heart and the counsels of you in all that we do. We want to examine your Word and follow the direction of your mind, therefore prayer allows us to conform our will to yours.
People, after all, are one family called the Kenyan people and the Kenyan nation. They must learn to live, work together, and respect one another for the purpose of making Kenya a great nation.
We pray for Kenyans to maintain peace and love and to foster unity and harmony among themselves.
In the name of Jesus. Amen
Mission Stewardship Moment from Kenya:
To reduce maternal mortality and morbidity, the health department is trying to develop a flyer for maternal health to help the church for the sensitization women.
This flyer has been developed to provide leaders and women in the church with important information to help promote health, prevent illnesses for expectant mothers, and provide guidance for lactating mothers and mothers caring for children under five years old.
