HILARIOUS VIDEO: Just how long should prayer for a meal last?

Published

BY GRACE

Much as it is important to say the Grace before a meal, some people sometimes get carried away and go a little too far in their communication with the Almighty.

There have been cases of people veering off course and, besides giving thanks for the meal, they, in the same breath, pray for governments, political campaigns and even Safari rallies.

Unknown to them, some of the partakers at the same table may be suffering in silence, especially if they haven’t had anything to eat the whole day. But not so for the young man in the video below:

Please read this guide to brief prayers recommended before or after a meal:

  • Ecumenical – “We give You thanks for food and drink and all that You provide: flowers, mountains, stars above, family by our side. Grant that we might hear Your voice and always be our Guide; From now until the end of time may we, in You, abide. Amen”
  • Catholic (before eating) – “Bless us, O Lord, and these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.” (Preceded and followed by the Sign of the Cross.)
  • Catholic (after eating) – “We give Thee thanks, Almighty God, for all thy benefits, Who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.” (Preceded and followed by the Sign of the Cross.)
  • Eastern Orthodox (before eating) – “O Christ God, bless the food and drink of Thy servants, for holy art Thou, always, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.” (The one saying the prayer may make the Sign of the Cross over the food with his right hand).
  • Eastern Orthodox (after eating) – After the meal, all stand and sing: We thank Thee, O Christ our God, that Thou hast satisfied us with Thine earthly gifts; deprive us not of Thy Heavenly Kingdom, but as Thou camest among Thy disciples, O Saviour, and gavest them peace, come unto us and save us.[3] There are also seasonal hymns which are sung during the various Great Feasts. At Easter, it is customary to sing the Paschal troparion.
  • Anglican Bless, O Father, Thy gifts to our use and us to Thy service; for Christ’s sake. Amen.
  • Lutheran (The common table prayer) (before eating) Come, Lord Jesus, be our Guest, and let Thy/these gifts to us be blessed. Amen.
  • Lutheran (The common table prayer) (after eating) O give thanks unto/to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy/love endureth/endures forever. Amen.
  • Methodist/Wesleyan (Grace Before Meat) Be present at our table Lord. Be here and everywhere adored. These mercies bless and grant that we may feast in fellowship with Thee. Amen.[4]
  • Methodist/Wesleyan (Grace After Meat) We thank thee, Lord, for this our food, But more because of Jesus’ blood. Let manna to our souls be given, The Bread of Life, sent down from heaven. Amen.[4]

I’m not a Shylock: Jaguar disowns money lending app

Published

on

Starehe MP Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has disowned a money lending app that is being marketed as a platform enjoying his sponsorship.

Jaguar has warned the public not to fall victim of the app dubbed ‘Jaguar loan app’.

The app allegedly gives needy Kenyans loans from Sh5, 000.

It bears an old photo of the MP sitting in a chair with a bundle of cash in his hands. The picture was taken from a scene of Jaguar’s  video of his hit song ‘Kioo’.

“Kenyans don’t get duped…..It would be so sad to lose your money to unscrupulous people,” wrote Jaguar on his social media pages.

Unlike other apps that send money directly to a client’s mobile phone, ‘Jaguar loan app’ asks for details of the client’s bank account details where the money will be allegedly deposited.

“Mobile Loans makes it easy for you to access loans from your phone anywhere, any time. Sign up in less than 5 minutes, fill your bank account details, apply for a loan you qualify and receive your money straight to whichever bank account you provide.

“It’s a fast, convenient and reliable way to access instant credit when you need it most. We help you get instant and easy personal or business loans to meet your goals. Everything is done right from the app,” reads the instructions on the app.

Jaguar joins the list of politicians including Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Embakasi East MP Babu Owino whose names and photos have been used by conmen to solicit money from unsuspecting Kenyans.

“Nmeekelea thao tatu usiseme zimekunywa Maji,” said donjazzy254.

“Nilikua nataka kui download ila nilipo ona niya “4.6mb” app niliishuku,” wrote tomilli_tenymes.

“Anzisha uenye ni real sasa coz i see the person in the picture ni wewe mwesh,” commented kiptookip.

“Thanks for the information,” stated Jessica Muli.

“I was completely surprised. We had not been talking about formalizing our relationship so I did not expect it. We had just come from holidays and we were celebrating his birthday as we do with close friends every year, “the governor stated.

A traditional Kikuyu ceremony later followed on February 16 – two days after Valentine’s – in Kiamungo, Kirinyaga county with family and invited guests present.

Blonde Dj Mo caught using iPhone while marketing Oppo

Published

on

The concept of an “influencer” is pretty clear; “an individual who can reach many people through various communication channels and can therefore, potentially, influence them to like or dislike, adopt, buy or skip buying, products and services”.

Samuel Muraya, popularly known as Dj Mo, broke the code by going the opposite while influencing for and endorsing the latest Oppo smartphone F11 launched this week.

The gospel Dj sent out several tweets to describe how he likes the latest Oppo gadget while using an iPhone which is a rival product.

Kenyans online, who never miss the opportunity to poke fun at an online gaffe, took notice before Dj Mo could delete the tweets.

NEW FORM OF MARKETING

Using celebrity influencers has become the new form of marketing. It is believed that their fans are likely to use a brand that their “idols” are associated with.

Mr Muraya is not the first person to make such a blunder.

American media mogul and former talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey once sent shares of Windows tumbling down after she used an iPad to promote Windows Surface tablet.

Another influencer Luka Sabbat was sued last year for failing to live up to an agreement to promote Snap Spectacles on his Instagram account.

The company filed the lawsuit in New York Supreme Court, alleging that Sabbat breached his agreement to post three Instagram stories and one post to his Instagram feed in which he would be wearing the spectacles.

While in Nigeria, renowned tech YouTuber, Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) Samsung Nigeria was forced to deactivate their verified account after he posted from an iPhone.

Russian TV personality Ksenia Sobchak, who doubled as Samsung’s brand ambassador was also sued after she was photographed using an iPhone X during a TV interview instead of a Samsung.
