As many of you know, Kenya has been undergoing a time of political unrest since the December 27 presidential elections last year. Many lives have been lost, many displaced, property destroyed, with the situation still unresolved between our leaders. Please join Kenyans throughout the world as we pray for peace and healing for our country.
God says, "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, I will hear from heaven, I will hear and I will come and HEAL THEIR LAND." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
On January 25th 2008, we are asking every Kenyan and Friends, everywhere to take time to make a concerted prayer for Kenya.
We want EVERY Kenyan and friend in EVERY CONTINENT on the face of the earth to be praying together on this one day on behalf of our country.
‧ On January 25th, make a point of setting aside time to pray for Kenya, it does not have to be a long time but please effort to pray for specific things about Kenya.
‧ You can pray individually, or get together with a friend or friends, workmates, someone on the street, your priest, pastor, congregation, youth group
What to pray for:
‧ AMANI, AMANI, AMANI (PEACE, PEACE, PEACE)
‧ Whatever else you feel in your heart to pray for concerning Kenya
'Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.'
Maombi ya mtu mwenye haki yana nguvu na huleta matokeo.' (James 5:16)
(The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much)
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

I received this from a Kenyan friend who hopes to enter the Daughters of St. Paul in her homeland, which is still gravely threatened even though it's not so much in the news right now:
