For the peoples of Kenya as the general election is held in the midst of an ongoing political crisis:
God of freedom and mercy,
in the midst of crisis, we search for clarity;
in times of threat, we seek for peace of mind.
May our searching and seeking
look beyond the easy answers
of simplistic thinking and false security.
As we exercise our freedom, may we also work
for the liberation of others;
as we debate our future, may our vision embrace
all the peoples of Kenya;
as we fight for equality, may we always seek
a fair share for all.
Bless those in political life with wisdom and discernment,
mercy and a vision of a truly common good.
Mungu ibariki Afrika. Amen.
