Praying through transitions

Every year, World Concern staff members across the world dedicate a day or two in prayer. In Kenya, we felt led to pray for our partners, and then meditated on a sermon from Mark 4:35-41 titled Fixing our eyes on Jesus during transitions.


It will interest you because transitions are part of your life and mine, each day.

The take-aways:

  • There is a call to move to the other side for a new experience
  • Transitions are difficult
  • Storms in life lead to a deeper understanding of Christ

“God is calling us to make adjustments not for ourselves but for Him. He will be with us, and we’ll come out stronger on the other side,” said Africa Regional Director, Peter Macharia, while giving the message.

Peter Macharia“When we fix our eyes on Christ and not on the storm, we are able to handle it,” he said.

Praying for Partners
As the day closed, we felt convicted to pray for the churches that have stood with us.

We clasped our hands on top of tiny pieces of paper, each with a name of a church partner and prayed. Individual members of staff then picked one piece each, at random for a church they will be praying for.


We feel perhaps, that the best way to thank these churches is to pray for them and use the resources they have bestowed on us as intended.

Thank you!
Thank you!

We’re grateful to each of our partners. We pray that God may refresh you, heal and provide for you. Thank you for providing tools that empower thousands of our beneficiary partners in Kenya, Chad, Uganda, South Sudan and Somaliland to lead full and productive lives!

    1. I know! Good thing is that God is always refreshing us, especially through our weekly devotions. Always something to look forward to.
