Please pray for the country, Uhuru tells Kenyans

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked Kenyans to pray for the country in the wake of increased terror attacks.
The President Wednesday hosted members of the Parliamentary Prayer Fellowship Group at State House, Nairobi to seek prayer for the current problems facing the country.
The group, including Senators and Members of the National
Assembly were meeting the President ahead of this year’s National Prayer
Breakfast to be held on May 28.
Preparations for the National Prayer Breakfast, which is usually held on
the third Thursday of May, are in high gear according to members of the Committee.
President Kenyatta called on the group and all Kenyans to continue praying for the country.
He said he would support the organisation of the event.
The breakfast prayer meeting was attended by the likes of Cabinet
Secretaries Joseph Nkaissery (Interior) and Jacob Kaimenyi (Education).
This year, the prayers will centre on the current state of insecurity in the country, especially in the aftermath of the Garissa University College terror attacks that saw 148 people killed.
There is also the issue of corruption that has blighted the country in the past year.
However, Kenyans were critical of the campaign by the president and mocked the hash-tag #prayforKenya, accusing the state of not taking care of the country's security and then reverting to prayer.
