Pray for Kenya ahead of 2017 elections, religious institutions asked
Religious institutions operating in Kenya have been asked to contribute to the well being of the society through prayers and preaching peace messages across the country as people prepare to face general elections next year.
While speaking at Suguta Marmar on the border of Samburu and Laikipia counties, Jesus Healing Ministries’ Prophet Dr Wilfred Lai said religious institutions have got prayers and a chance to preach peace to many people as weapons of battling hatred, communal division and political wars among other evil that are yielded by politics.
Dr Lai challenged religious institutions in the country to be alert in prayers and spreading love messages during political campaigns as the role of politicians and churches comes at the same time during elections.
The man of cloth also urged people across the country to put aside their tribal and political differences and peacefully love each other as the country heads towards general election.
Lai was welcomed in Samburu county at Suguta Marmar trading center in Samburu central sub county where he anointed a stone with prayer and oil as a sign of breaking an alter of witchcraft and freeing people of Samburu from poverty, hunger, battles resulting from community based conflicts and diseases.
However the Bishop’s act of anointing a stone at the border of Samburu and Laikipia counties has left residents with great expectations.
Grace Nasieku, a business lady in Suguta Marmar said that now that the man of God has anointed a stone at the entrance of Samburu county they expect business boom.
“Business doesn’t flourish in this area, we expect positive results and expansion of businesses now that the prophet has anointed a stone,” said Nasieku.
The bishop will be preaching at Kenyatta stadium in Maralal town Samburu County where thousands of followers across all churches have converged until Sunday.
