This morning I received pictures from our sweet son in Kenya.
The political violence and military militia are out of control. Shooting, tear gas, and rape are rampant.
"The government of the day is determined to remain in power at all costs."
"I have not left the house for 4 days. Gunshots and teargas is all over Kisumu."
"Many people have died as a result of police brutality. People have been maimed and women raped by malitia groups that are state sponsored."
Please, stop and pray. Pray for peace. Pray for safety. Pray for somehow new government officials to be set in place and the violence to stop.
"O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings! Interlude For you have heard my vows, O God. You have given me an inheritance reserved for those who fear your name. Add many years to the life of the king! May his years span the generations! May he reign under God’s protection forever.
May your unfailing love and faithfulness watch over him. Then I will sing praises to your name forever as I fulfill my vows each day."
