THEME: GOD OUR PROVIDER
“When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she began to sob. God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.” Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink.”
-Hagar watched with desperation thinking that his son Ishmael would starve to death. She sat and watched at a distance sobbing and probably though that her son would perish at the age of seventeen. The Lord having blessed Abraham and all his descendants, He could defile His word and remembered his son Ishmael as promised. He provided a well of water when they needed it most. Like Hagar and Ishmael, sometimes we get to such situations when we desperately need God’s Providence. Since we are descendants of Abraham according to God’s promise, we are partakers of his promise and most importantly the promise of eternal life through Christ Jesus.
God our loving Father, we thank You for Your merciful love upon us, our families and nation. You have been faithful to us always even when we have become faithless. You are our ever present help in times of need, we praise You and glorify Your holy name. Only You are worthy Lord our Father, only You are able, receive all the glory and adoration. Like You provided for Hagar and Ishmael when they were desperately in need of Your help, uplift us out of all our troubles and tribulations. We look to You only Jesus for only You are our salvation, bless us indeed and expand our territories. We cast our burdens and cares unto You Jesus for You care for us. Many are the trials that we go through but You deliver us from them all, receive all the glory and adoration. Remember those who do not have food, shelter and clothing that You may reach each one of them at their points of need. Be with all our youth loving Father especially now that they are not going to school that You may shape their future. Deliver them from peer pressure that they may not fall into the snares of the evil one. Settle their hearts as they wait on You for reopening of the schools. May Your healing virtue heal all those who are sick that they may know You more. Be with all the health worker who are responsible for taking care for those who are sick. We pray for special protection in their lives. Lead all our leaders with wisdom even as they make the required pronouncements. We declare that Kenya belongs to You Jesus.
