Uhuru prays for rain to come and it starts raining heavily soon after! see Kenyan’s reaction
President Uhuru was on Friday pushed by the crowd to pray in Nyeri.
He caused a laughter saying that he was a politician and not a pastor, but then the Lord proved him wrong or some how proved something unique in him. The head of state then prayed – in Kikuyu – asking God to bless the community with rainfall.
“Our God we pray for peace in our country, give us rains so that our animals have something to eat. We pray for a good harvest in our farms and growth in our country. We pray for victory,” the president prayed in Kikuyu.
Minutes later, it poured heavily though dark clouds had already gathered before the meeting started.
Following the rains, the president’s team cancelled a rally scheduled at Kiganjo.
Social media was abuzz with praise for Mr Kenyatta for making an effectual prayer. Others said it was just a coincidence.
Laban Thuo, a Facebook user, posted, “His Excellency the President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, just like our respectable distinguished fore-fathers and elders prayed for our nation in Nyeri for rain and it really rained. That’s a sign!!!! For better things ahead.”
Other termed him a prophet “Believe me our president is not only a leader but a prophet, after he prayed for rain in Nyeri, a few minutes later it rained,” Doreen Magambo said.
“This means a lot. If our President could land in Nyeri and the Lord answers his prayer even before he leaves the place, I can only imagine what would happen to this country if he called for a day of prayer and fasting and he led it himself,” Catherine Kabiri posted.
Various parts of the country are experiencing a long dry spell that has lead to biting drought.
