The prayers, whose theme was “Dedicating Ourselves to God in Seeking National Peace and Prosperity”, took place at the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.

During the service, the President was accorded a slot to read the scripture taken from the book of 2 Chronicles 7 verses 12-14 while the other reading from Mark 2 verses 1-5 was read by Ms. Happy Chabuka.

In his sermon Pastor Frackson Kuyama asked Malawians to rely upon God all the time if the nation is to experience development.

He also called upon the country’s citizens to be united in facing the calamities that befall the nation and achievements that come out of hard work and God’s intervention Pastor Kuyama asked government and Malawians not to lose hope over donor funding which seems to have been attached to alien cultures such as homosexuality.

Mutharika assured the gathering that God will never abandon Malawi at any time. Also presenting a homily, Rev Alex Maulana of Blantyre Synod asked Malawians to refrain from sin if blessings are to shower on the nation.

The sermons were followed by an intercessory session in which prayers were offered for the commencement of a normal rainy season, violence against women and children, corruption and political inclusiveness.

Offerings realized from the service were given to Malingunde School for the Blind in Lilongwe. Music at the service was provided by Great Angels Choir, St Patrick’s Catholic Choir, Kafita Nursery Choir, Likuni District Dorcas Choir, Calvary Family Church Choir and Quadria Women Kasida

Inenso ndikuona kuti mapemphero amenewa anali a trade fair ndipo I doubt ngati afika kumwamba. It looks like amakapempherera dzuwa mom we liliri kuno Ku Lilongwe eeeee! Lasweka osati sewero! Zofunika mapemphero apaderadera tonse tizikhuthule kwa Yehova. Ayike tsiku lapadera aliyense apemphera, asapezeke omwa mowa, kusuta fodya, chiwerewere ndi zina zotere. I hope this way God will hear and answer our prayers!

Did the organisers of these prayers really mean what the theme of the prayers said or it was just a face saving theme while the aim behind was to seek praises from the people.

Shouldn’t the president be telling lazy Malawians to dig boreholes and use the water to irrigate their crops and those along the lake and sgire to irrigate their wilting crops before they die? Remember God helps those who help themselves
