Thousands of Kenyans pray for a peaceful election at Uhuru Park in the capital, Nairobi, on Sunday. People are hoping that Monday's tightly contested general elections will not trigger violence similar to that seen after the disputed 2007 poll, when about 1,000 people were killed and 600,000 were left homeless.
The service was organised by Kenya's Prophet David Owuor. With President Mwai Kibaki, the eight contenders for his job attended the event. They included Uhuru Kenyatta, who denies charges by the International Criminal Court that he orchestrated some of the violence after the 2007 poll.
Undaunted by the charges, Mr Kenyatta, who is in a neck-and-neck race with Prime Minister Raila Odinga, was campaigning in Rift Valley province on Wednesday. Here, his supporters wave as he flies out after addressing a rally in the town of Suswa, about 70km (43 miles) west of Nairobi.
On Friday, it was Mr Odinga's turn to campaign in Rift Valley, a stronghold of Mr Kenyatta's running mate William Ruto.
On Monday, crowds gather in Nairobi to watch on a large screen the final televised presidential debate. This was the first time that Kenya had presidential debates, showing that campaigning was becoming more sophisticated. Parties and candidates also reached out to potential voters via social media.
But this man, sitting in a drinking den in Nairobi's Mathare slum on Tuesday, has already made up his mind, making it clear that his loyalty lies with Mr Kenyatta's The National Alliance (TNA) coalition.
While this man, at a rally in Garissa town in north-east Kenya on Wednesday, shows he is a die-hard supporter of Mr Odinga.
With Garissa close to the border with Somalia, a Kenyan soldier was on patrol at the rally on Wednesday to prevent any attack by Somalia's militant Islamist group, al-Shabab. The al-Qaeda-linked group has carried out a spate of attacks in Kenya in recent years, and all eight presidential candidates have promised to make a greater effort to secure Kenya's borders if they win the election.
In Nairobi on the same day, life carried on normally at this fruit and vegetable market.
Earlier in the week on Monday, commuters in the city board a train painted with murals promoting peace.
In Nairobi's Kibera slum, home to more than more than one million people, a hawker carrying brooms on Monday walks past another mural which is part of a "Kibera Walls for Peace" project aimed at ensuring peaceful elections.
Kibera is a stronghold of Mr Odinga and his Cord party, where these children carry posters on Thursday for one of the party's candidates. Voters will also be choosing members of parliament and senators, county governors and members of the newly formed county assembly.
On Thursday, a man and his donkeys in Ngong town near Nairobi show their support for the TNA party. The winning presidential candidate must get more than 50% of the total votes cast and at least 25% of votes in half of the 47 counties. If there is no clear winner, a second round of voting is set for 11 April.
