Over 70 percent of Kenya’s population is made up of the youth, according to the last Census report. This means that Kenya is a youthful nation, and, therefore, a strong nation.
A nation founded on the foundation of empowered youth is a nation that is destined for great things. Of course great leadership not withstanding.
Today is Sunday. It is NOT a day for politics and policies. For Christians, it is a day of prayer, praise and worship. It is a day the majority of us go before our Maker to state our problems and seek forgiveness.
The Bible recognizes the youth. The authors of the Bible, in their wisdom, knew and realized that without a youth, a nation is dead. But are our youth what the Bible wants them to be?
The book of 1 Timothy 4:12 says “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
The book of Ecclesiastes 11:9 says “Rejoice O young man, in your youth and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you to judgement.
The youth in Kenya are currently celebrating the National Youth Week through the State Department for Youth. The week is ruled with various activities geared towards the International Youth Day on August 12, 2020.
On this day (Sunday August 9, 2020, being Day 4 of the National Youth Week), the National Youth Council in conjunction with the State Department for Youth is holding a special prayer session that brings together youth across denominations.
The prayer session is happening at Parklands Baptist Church and will stream live on State Department for Youth social media pages; Facebook.
Even as we enjoy our youth, let us not forget the Super Natural Being that makes us live. Have a prayerful day.
