Meru County has launched a county prayer altar to seek God’s guidance and power while carrying out their responsibilities.
Bishop Patrick Kariuki and Monicah Kathono, County Executive Committee for Finance, unveiled the prayer altar at the county headquarters.
According to Kathono, the prayers will encourage and mentor staff, and they will extend the prayers to various facilities such as hospital wards, markets, and other locations throughout the county.
The prayers will be voluntary for three days a week and will not interfere with working hours. The prayers will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 6:45 and 7:30 p.m.
Bishop Kariuki urged everyone to pray seriously so that God could restore what the devil had stolen from the county. He emphasised that the county can attract more investors and bring all leaders together for greater development through prayers and hard work.
The prayers, he claims, will reveal hidden opportunities, minerals, and resources that will benefit the county.
The prayer altar’s unveiling comes six months after the governor managed to mend fences with MCAs.
Governor Kawira Mwangaza, the founder of the Baite Family Fellowship Church, has been leading prayers at her public appearances.
