Prayer about Nairobi fire that left thousands homeless
Lord, today we pray about the fire in the Lang'ata neighborhood of Nairobi that killed four people last night and left approximately 6000 homeless. We are grateful for the firefighters’ prompt and efficient response, but devastated that a lack of water prevented them from containing the fire for about eight hours. Heavenly Father, we first pray for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones. Please comfort them in this dark hour. Next, we pray for the thousands who now find themselves homeless. Please provide for their needs. May Nairobi’s citizens and leaders reach out in generosity and wisdom, meeting immediate needs and discerning adequate long-term solutions for these individuals and families who now find themselves in these dire circumstances. Finally, Lord, we pray that fire trucks in Nairobi will never find themselves running out of water again. May city leaders determine how to prevent this from happening. May promises for better trucks and improved service come to fruition. And may any faults in current plans and operations come to light so they can be corrected. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
