“Behind the scenes for all of us are our families, the ones who suffer silently, you may not know but our wives and children need prayers because in whatever we do, they also have their friends and belong to various groups. They need prayers so that they can stand with us in this journey,” he said.
Chebukati asked that the clergy to pray for IEBC staff to gain wisdom when making decisions in the August 9 polls.
He says IEBC staff go through a lot of harassment and they need prayers to stand strong.
“Please pray for the IEBC staff. Those involved in the national tallying centre, the returning officers in the 47 counties and 290 constituencies, the clerks who will be at polling stations, the presiding officers.”
He added, “Police need prayers because without them we cannot manage this process. Right now they are escorting ballot papers to various polling stations and they need prayers to work for the good of the country.”
