Lord, today we pray about the grievous fire that broke out during the night at the Gikomba market in Nairobi, Kenya. Heavenly Father, we are distraught about the 15 people killed, including children, and the more than 70 injured. Please make your presence known to those who grieve and to those fighting pain and fear. Make a way for each of the injured to receive needed medical care, whether formal or informal. Provide for those whose livelihood was destroyed through the blaze. Give them the fortitude and resources to rebuild or begin a new venture. May the people in this area be generous as they help neighbors who have been negatively impacted by this fire. Lord, we would also like the truth to come out about how the fire began. And we pray against fires in this area in the future, particularly that potential arsonists would be overwhelmingly convicted in their hearts before causing any damage; choosing to bring value rather than destruction to their community. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
