A prayer for Charlene, the daughter of Kenya’s President William Ruto, to find a husband has stirred diverse reactions on social media in the East African nation.

The request was made during a mass prayer led by American preacher Benny Hinn, which Ruto, his wife, and Charlene attended along with thousands of others. The prayer gathering took place over the weekend in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, according to the Cable.

During the prayer gathering led by Hinn, attendees were encouraged to present their prayer requests, prompting Charlene to come forward. She expressed her desire for guidance in her “calling” to work with youths. After Hinn prayed for her initial request, he inquired if she had any additional special prayers.

Charlene then whispered her request into the preacher’s ear.

“Give her a husband that will fulfill that call with her. Lord send that young man her way that will be a strength to her, a great supporter,” the preacher bellowed into the microphone after Charlene’s special request.

“She can’t do this alone, Lord, she is going to the battlefield to win souls… she needs a husband soon.”

Charlene’s prayer request has sparked varied responses among Kenyans, with numerous individuals extending marriage proposals to her.

One social media user, identified as Omwamba, addressed a letter to the first daughter via X on Monday, expressing admiration for her sincerity and humility.

“My name is Omwamba, a hustler. And I am reaching out to you after witnessing your heartfelt request for a husband during your prayer session with Pastor Benny Hinn,” the man wrote.

“I was moved by your sincerity and the faith you demonstrated yesterday and God has sent me your way.

“Having seen your strong faith and genuine desire for companionship, I am writing to express my admiration and to humbly request your hand in marriage.”

Another social media user wrote: “Singleness is not a state to admire… you see even Charlene Ruto went to Benny Hinn and her prayer request was that God give her a Husband so that she can relate. Now, it means our guy Daddy Owen was just playing Banta with her,” the man tweeted, referring to a gospel singer the first daughter had been romantically linked with.
