DP Ruto unveils National Prayer Altar at his Karen residence
Deputy President William Ruto and his wife Rachel Ruto on Wednesday launched a National Prayer Altar at their residence in Karen, Nairobi.
Mrs Ruto shared the news in a Facebook post she shared.
In some of the pictures she shared, the couple are seen in the company of various leaders of the clergy.
“Today, my husband, the Deputy President and I, were blessed to have been joined by Fathers of Faith and key leaders in various mountains of influence during the opening ceremony of our National Prayer Altar at the Official Residence of the Deputy President,” read the Facebook post.
The DP’s wife went on to quote a Bible verse in the post.
“David built there an altar to the LORD and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. Thus the LORD was moved by prayer for the land, and the plague was held back from Israel.” (2 Samuel 24:25)
In one of the pictures, the DP’s family is seen holding their hands together in prayers before the altar.
The Deputy President is known for his close association with the church and religiously attends fellowship every Sunday in different churches across the country.
