Prayers for Kenya please!!!!

Recommended Posts

I received this on my FB message inbox from Peter Odhiambo (established member) on 9/14/11:

On Monday, the oil pipeline busted one kilometer away from where I stay here. Exactly the place I had told you I minister in open air meetings.The wells of oil caught fire while the poor slum dwellers had rushed to siphon fuels, 120 people are now dead. quite a number are in hospitals some are fighting for their lives. It is sad here, I saw a huge smoke of clouds, the smell of burning bodies and balls of fire chasing people to their shantis. Some families were all caught up in the meleee and wiped by the inferno.The fuel pipe busted on the river. Today bodies are still being retrieved from Nairobi river. Laura, this is shocking. the government has declared today and tomorrow mourning days.We have heard fires in this country, all of them looking as hell. Kenya has a prophetic mantle to carry in Africa . Something has been wrong though. We used to be economic power house , now we are struggling. This country used to be a home for refugees from somali,Ethiopia ,Rwanda and sudan but now we are refugees in our own country after the previous election violence. There is not much we can do as you know prayers and actions are needed here. There are families along Jogoo Rd. I wished we could give blankets,We talked with my co pastor, we shall ask members of our church to bring whatever they can carry from their houses. I am safe I have been for the past two months asking prayers from the saints about my protection. So this was it. I am also trusting God to move atleast 2km away from the slums. The area is populated, we do share one toilet by 10-15 other houses. Cases of water being contaminated are very common here even in estates,when it rains it sweeps human wastes so you can think of this kind of water even if the authorites tries to clean it.My worst worry now is anticipation of Cholera, its raining here and animals wastes even human parts that have died might mixed up with waters . We are warned now. I suggest God help me to flee from here as first as possible. Crime is a nother big problem here. The deeper you go the scary it is for anyone. I have people I ministered to deep down there. all of them were spared from the fire, thanks be to God. I know many altars are in this places Laura, pray, pray and really pray. I will have to trust God for the source of Finances that I may move a little futher in the outer. I shall be safe there with Equipments of ministry. It has not been easy without constant finance supply. Laura I shall continue to pray for your family, each one of them. I pray and God that we serve will do the rest. Thank you, may I hear from you dear servant of God.

I will pray as well! I received a PM from this man on 9/1, seemingly at random, asking for prayer...so I have done so, daily, since then. However, I had no idea what sort of situation he was in!

Continuing to pray,
-Mark

I believe this all happened around Sept 12 or maybe the day before...I hadn't seen any media coverage on it here, but I found the date info online.

This fire started in the morning of 11th september while most people were still asleep. The sinai is one of the many slums here in Nairobi, congested and railway lines, electricity and Oil pipeline running from the Port Mombasa passes through right in the middle of the populated environment. Most of the houses here are either boxes of cartons or wooden and sometimes low iron sheets. These structures made it difficult for the residence to control the fire.

The oil pipeline had busted, the slum dwellers hearing of this rushed with cups, basins and jericans to have the commodity. A hundred of them were their. It is aledged that one resident ignited a cigarette and the petrol caught fire. At this time most fuel had wetted the area, including the Nairobi river. Many people whose bodies had caught fire jumped into the river to extinguish fire not knowing that petrol mixed with water is like a bomb. Most of them perished in this way. I saw myself bodies burnt, the stench of roasted bodies and the smell of death is still being felt here around. I was shocked.

Two weeks earlier before this happened, the Lord prompted me to ask for prayers, specifically my protection and protection of Kenya. Sinai area is the area I frequent in the open air meetings and crusades. It has been on my heart ,I stay about 1km away from this scene. I have ministered here several times, many people are open to the gospel BUT the weight of witchcraft and false God is still being felt. Right now the village is swept away, the shantis caught fire and the poor residents are displaced. We have visited them at Tom mboya Hall, the locals are giving basic needs. We however doubt if the government will give permanent residential place for these people. They have been neglected and their only hope is men of God and word of God. I saw them having a lot of items from christians. I will be ministering to them in this place they are located now. I pray I will be able to give more.

I also need prayers and enablements. Many of us including myself will have to evacuate the area, at leasts 3km away or so. Most of us have been served with notices to relocate. Most pipelines are underground.I will have to move too, I need prayers and people here need prayers. Brethren, their is something God is communicating. Christians are praying and the lord is witnessing in my heart about repentance.

I have the pictures( not very good pictures of this scenes). I know God is faithful. Keep praying for me, for this area and for the church. Let God be merciful, and let him allow and do as he wish. The shakable foundations to be shakened. I need prayers too, I have been scared since this events.

Peter odhiambo,

kenya.

Praying for the worlds peace daily! We also need to pray for our leaders and our spiritual leaders. We need to be praying for the lost everyday and for those who are preaching the word to the lost. Praying that their hearts are softened and their eyes open and ears open to hear the truth and they accept Jesus.

Love in Jesus,

Connie

EXACTLY!!!!!! I think as Christians we spend way too much time tearing down our leaders and spiritual leaders. Because of this, our world is suffering. If EVERY CHristian would open their mouths and use the power that is in their tongue for GOOD, then this world can change. I've read way too many posts on this site and other sites tearing down our country's leaders...and we are sounding just like the world. We are the ones with the power that can tear down demonic kingdoms and turn away disasters like this one in Kenya, but we don't. LETS PRAY PEOPLE OF GOD!!! LET US PRAY!!!!!!!!! The Word of God has COMMANDED us to do this...

Cholette,

I with to thank all who are continued in ceaseless prayers. God is calling on his people to pray and change the deirection the world has taken. Prayer is number on precise and offensive weapon we can all access against the kingdom of darkness. Only one third of the demons made it on earth after staging a revolt against the throne of God. Satan and his demons which are only one third do not reproduce. The christians are on the increase each day but its unfathomable how demons still have their ways in our lives and around us. these demons are few, but inteligent they are able to transform our minds into battle fields, they keeps us in collision with the true word of God. We have to break lose dear people of God, we have to fight and get the holyspiirit renew and control our minds. This is a war that if fought well right from within us can affect the environment around us, it can affect the remote villages, houses, streets and cities and the nations of the world . We have a God who is great and awesome,
Deutronomy 4:7 For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him

The people who know there God shall be strong and do mighty exploits. Chollette, I gree we do not have to tear the leaders a part, if we do this we are attacking the plans of God. All authority comes from God and God has anointed leaders despite their failures and characters. God knew that Saul was not his choice but the peoples' and he was not a very good king but still he had to put his oil upon his head. Every leader has a spiritual role.whether he is a bad or good leader, yet God still want his annointed not to be touched. Here in Kenya most of the calamities and tragedy like this one of fire and bloodshed are sacrifices for the altars of top satanic governmental leaders . God is already dealing with some of them, some are repenting and other are going to be dealt with as God seems best. As christians we can still capture the lands in our coutries and rededicate it to the only one God, the creator of heaven and Earth. We can demolish any othe altar and build a new altar of the Lord and repent on behalf of cities. We are going to fight and win the battles through honor. I have seen men of God who disrepect governmental authority do not go far in their work. Let us keep praying for the Nations, for America and Israel too.

Lurdys/angelwings,

Thank you so much for the prayers. I feel some breakthroughs I can sense the foundations of darkness shakened, I feel like driving every witch out of business in kenya. Lord arise and let your enemies be scattered!!!!!! Keep praying for me as I launch this battle outside my door steps. I need a cover and the enemy has to take away his hands From and the people . I force him to pay seven times, IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

Connie,

I can only say, the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent must take it by force. We have to announce from the platform of victory---to pharaoh and the witches to let the people of God go free.

Thanks Connie,

bro Peter

I am a Kenyan and am happy to know that you people are with us in prayers. there has been a series of accidents of late which is alarming, fire, road accidents, people dying coz of taking illicit brews.

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

Please let s us not cease in prayer.

God bless you all!

Josephine
