As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread the world over, church leaders have urged the nation to pray.
Deliverance Church overseer Bishop Mark Kariuki, JCC ministries’ Bishop Allan Kiuna and Neno Evangelist’s Pastor James Ng’ang’a all called on Kenyans to remain calm and turn to God, not to panic.

Bishop Mark told Word Is the church will remain open since there are people who prefer to pray in church during a crisis.
“You cannot lock the church, but we will watch the number of people who attend the services by reducing the chairs in church, and arrange them in a distance of one metre away from each other,” he said.
“The time of the services will also be reduced to accommodate many services for people who want to pray in church.”
Mark added that coronavirus is not a death sentence but we all need to stay safe.

Bishop Allan Kiuna said he will be giving his congregants the way forward today.
“Coronavirus is a serious pandemic that needs to be approached with seriousness but not with fear,” he said.
He said his ministry had to suspend evening prayer meetings. “Kenyans should stay in an act of prayers and know that God is in the throne and this, too, shall pass,” he said.
Kiuna urged Kenyans to reach out to family and friends and care for each other in these trying times.
