Challenges for Prayer

  1. The fragile environment, the need for land reform, a wide gap between rich and poor, scarce water, and urban slums that quickly spread all create tension in Kenyan society. Pray for peace, for wise governance, and for practical solutions.

  2. Pray for Christians to unite to oppose wrongdoing, and to promote policies that honor God.

  3. Pray for churches, denominations, Bible schools, and seminaries to emphasize the Great Commission.

  4. Pray for the specialized ministry in Kenya: young people, HIV/AIDS sufferers, Muslims, the Somali, the Asian community.
