Today my heart is heavy.
Heavy because of our country.
Heavy because the spirit of scattering is hovering over Kenya and consequently affecting families too.
Heavy because brothers cannot see eye to eye.
Heavy because it is becoming exceedingly hard to extend a hand on peace to each other.
You are OUR ground IN KENYA.
You are the foundation of our friendship.
You are the safe place in which we rest.
Lord you know what problems we have been having, the reasons behind this sadness.
We confess our fears, failings and bitterness to you Lord.
And we put our trust in you.
We ask that you may turn the tide of our difficulties with your love.
A love that works through us.
A love that gives us your heart Jesus Christ.
A heart for each other.
We ask that you would give us hope as we work to overcome our differences.
A hope that turns the tide of bitterness.
A hope that restores our dreams.
A hope that awakens our passions and gives us strength for the future.
And we ask for your peace to be with us.
A peace that surpasses all human understanding.
A peace that allows us to rest in you Lord.
A peace that covers the hurts,
A peace that paves the way for reconciliation.
You are the ground beneath KENYA Lord.
We look to you.
