A New Beginning

What a historic day for Kenya… when we enact our first post-independence constitution. Commonly referred to by many as the birth of the ‘second republic’, it is a dream come true for many Kenyans who have longed for change and yet felt it was ‘not yet Uhuru’. Felt that independence had been hijacked, colonialism repackaged and injustice entrenched.          

On this day, Kenyans see the turning of a corner, the beginning of an era, the waking as if from a long troubled sleep. All their hopes and dreams are focused on a ceremony today that promises to match or trump our celebration of independence from the British in 1963. Most of us were not alive for that one and so we’re aiming to witness today’s keenly, so that we can tell future generations ‘we were there’!

On this day, as this great ship launches into the deep blue yonder, carrying our hopes and expectations, our prayer is…

Lord, may none hijack Kenya’s freedom again. May justice and equality become our legacy. May negative ethnicity and unchecked impunity finally be defeated. And may this grand nation rise from the ashes of its divided past like a phoenix reborn, and fulfill her great destiny of being a blessing for the sake of the nations around her.

O God of all creation
Bless this, our land and nation
Justice be our shield and defender
May we dwell in unity, peace and liberty
Plenty be found within our borders

  1. Indeed these are wonderful times to live in, and i believe it is my responsibility as a Kenyan to nurture the freedom to ensure it is not hijacked or aborted. God bless Kenya!!

  2. Hi Pst M.
    How have you been?

    I am totally excited about where we are headed as a nation, especially since now we have a chance to actually do something, so many doors opening, may we be worthy of the trust we have been bestowed with.Let it not be said of us in years to come, they had a wonderful constitution but………, and most of all, may Gods Kingdom be established, like Pst. Kiama says, may we be desperate to spread Gods Love, wherever, whenever.

    Kenya has been spoken of as a springboard of revival, this is truly our time,to make this a reality.

  3. My greatest revelation is in what God says to man.
    Let no man be in debt, but let the only debt existing be the debt of LOVE for One Another.
