- The faithfuls pleaded with God on behalf of their compatriots so he could heal the sick and end the COVID-19 scourge
- The group knelt down in broad daylight and some stretched their hands towards walls as they shouted and spoke to God with vigour

In most desperate moments and times of needs, humans have proved they can only rely on God to try and understand what is going on in the world.
Most people turn to prayers at times of calamities and seek God's intervention when tragedy strikes.
The COVID-19 scourge gave Christians a new reason to return to God and pray for the world.
On Monday, 13 April, a video of the Christian faithfuls praying for Kenya made rounds on the internet and elicited mixed reactions.
The prayerful people were spotted on their knees, humble and dedicated as they pleaded with God to have mercy over their fellow Kenyans and humans across the world.
They looked like they woke up early and made a trip to Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD) with the sole purpose of dedicating their city and country to the able hands of God.
It was a rare yet picturesque moment that captured worshippers surrendering to the Almighty and declaring that without him they were nothing.
Some looked up to the sky while calling out to God while others had their heads bowed in respect.
All of them had one thing in common. They were at war, fighting for their motherland which was under attack by COVID-19.
Without caring about who was watching, they shouted, chanted, sang, prayed, worshiped and interceded.
They all maintained social distancing and donned masks while speaking to their maker.
As soon as people on the internet saw the clip, their spirits were uplifted and indescribable hope engulfed them.
Everyone was touched and urged each other to copy the way of their brothers and sisters spotted in the clip.
