Today, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are hosting President William Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto of the Republic of Kenya for a state visit. The White House said the “visit will mark the 60th anniversary of U.S.-Kenya diplomatic relations and will celebrate a partnership that is delivering for the people of the United States and Kenya.“

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, “The visit will strengthen our shared commitment to advance peace and security, expand our economic ties, and stand together in defense of democratic values.“

The press secretary added, “The leaders will discuss ways to bolster our cooperation in areas including people-to-people ties, trade and investment, technological innovation, climate and clean energy, health, and security.  The visit will affirm our strategic partnership with Kenya and further the vision set forth at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit: African leadership is essential to addressing global priorities.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for both presidents as they discuss mutual concerns and priorities.
  • For the Lord to guide the meetings and agreements of President Biden and his administration officials.
  • For God to accomplish His will and purposes in the United States and through the alliances and partnerships this nation makes with other countries.
