“It is your Civic Duty to Go out and vote,” Church leaders tell Christians

Peace and Prayer Caravan

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” 2 Chronicles 7:14.

The National Prayer Committee together with the Church in Kenya successfully completed a three-day prayer session at the Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi, to seek God’s face and ask God for a peaceful election. While urging Kenyans to come together to pray for the nation, the NPC Committee chairperson Bishop Jesse Ireri said that the current political situation in the country calls for a stronger relationship with God.

The church has been at the forefront of this electioneering period calling for peace in the country. They have also been actively emphasising the need for citizens to exercise their civic duty. Speaking during the prayer meeting, Archbishop Harrison Ng’ang’a said, “I would like to urge Christians not to vote for their leaders by word of mouth alone but to turn up and vote in the polling station. If Christians do not turn up, “sinners” will turn up early in the morning to vote while we Christians will be in bed praying to the Lord I take authority and control. To take authority and control is to individually go and vote.”

The religious leaders spoke in one voice as they cautioned the Christian community to vote wisely and be ambassadors of peace during and after the electioneering process. They called on the Christian community to undertake to vote for credible leaders and commit the country to the hands of God to heal our land.

The conference brought many ministers from all parts of the country who have been part of the peace caravan that has traversed all the 47 counties of Kenya.
