You’re the God of Kisumu

I remember hearing the song by Chris Tomlin, “You’re the God of this City” over a year ago and falling in love with it.

Recently, this song has turned into my heart’s cry. My heart’s prayer.

The longer I’ve stayed in Kisumu, the more comfortable I’ve become with this city, with these people, the Luo tribe. But also, the longer I stay here, the more I see more of Kisumu’s darkness; the corruption, the cultural beliefs and traditional bonds that are holding people back. There is a loss of hope.

The more I see of how much they need Jesus.

You’re the Light in this darkness.
You’re the Hope to the hopeless.
You’re the Peace to the restless.

I see so much potential in this city, through these people. God has greater things for them.
For greater things have yet to come. Because He is God.

It’s my prayer that Kisumu will see the Light. See God. See that there is hope through Him.

Please join me in prayer that God will not only become the God of Kisumu, but the God’s of their hearts. Pray for us, as we bring transformation in Jesus name, for His Kingdom, for His glory.

 You’re the God of this City 
You’re the King of these people 
You’re the Lord of this nation 
You are 

You’re the Light in this darkness 
You’re the Hope to the hopeless 
You’re the Peace to the restless 
You are 

There is no one like our God 
There is no one like our God 

For greater things have yet to come 
And greater things are still to be done in this City 
Greater thing have yet to come 
And greater things are still to be done in this City
