Kenya Is Nothing Without God_President Uhuru Kenyatta Says As He Declares Saturday 21th of March As National Prayer Day For All Kenyans.
President Uhuru Kenyatta said despite the government’s efforts to keep everyone safe, there was a need to turn to God for protection.
In a statement, Uhuru said the prayer service will be led by religious leaders and will commence at 12pm at State House.
“On that day, through our religious leaders, we will be asking God for His forgiveness for anything that we may have done wrong or wronged Him.
We shall together ask for His protection and blessing for our Nation, for our people, for the world and all global citizens,” the statement read in part.
He said it was necessary to turn to God in the face of such a deadly pandemic as was Kenya’s culture in her time of crisis.
“But we also turn to God to share our fears, our apprehensions, but also to seek his guidance and ever-present protection,” Uhuru said. The head of state added Kenya is nothing without God and that it is only by seeking Him that the country would get hope and strength to overcome the challenges.
In addition, he said in line with the measures he announced on Sunday, March 15, the prayers will be observed at homes, work place or wherever one will be on Saturday
