Eph. 6:18 tells us "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. "
I Peter 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer.
Just think about I Peter 3:12, His ears are attentive to YOUR prayer. He stops and listens to what you have to say. You have the power within you to STOP God and have him listen to what you have to say by just praying... Use that power today for the people of Kenya.
Most of you may not know this but in Kenya today many people will die for no reason. There has been a civil war going on for a couple of months over the recent elections. Thousands of innocent children, mothers and fathers have been killed, raped, their homes destroyed and much more.
I have two contacts there, one of whom I have only communicated with once and last night he emailed me asking for prayer. Just think about it, he's emailing a person he has never met, never spoken to and only received an email from once in him life. That alone should tell you how much he needs our prayers. Below is his actual email to me, What faith he has...
