Malawians from all walks of life will this coming Saturday gather in Lilongwe in responding to the Presidential call to prayer which has specifically been organized to pray mainly for rain, good harvest, seeking God’s guidance for 2016 and other related blessings from God.
The gathering- which will run under the theme : “Dedicating Ourselves to God in Seeking National Peace and Prosperity” – is going to take place at the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC).
The event has been organized by all religious mother bodies namely; Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM), Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) Charismatic Pentecostal of Malawi (CPM), Muslims Association of Malawi (MAM), Quadria
Association of Malawi, Anglican Council of Malawi, Lutheran Church of Malawi among others.
According to Presidential Advisor on Religious Affairs, Apostle Timothy Khoviwa, the event is in line with President Mutharika’s established belief that divine intervention is the bedrock of leading any organization including a nation.
“President Mutharika believes that as a God fearing nation, we need to come and pray together from time to time. We are coming from a year of many challenges such as lack of donor aid and floods which had a bearing on the economy. However, God has made us sail through to this year,” he added.
“So, the prayers are an expression of thanksgiving to God for granting us the year 2016 as well as asking him to lead us throughout the year so that we receive good rains and attain a good harvest.”
The prayers have come after the Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services described the dry spells as worrisome for farmers as they have now lasted two weeks, raising fears of a food shortage.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
