Probably reacting to the current spate of issues threatening the peace of Malawi and its people in various ways, the Malawi Council of Churches Women Forum (MCCWF) have organised prayers slated for Saturday 18th to seeks God’s divine interventions.
The prayers that will be held at the Area 18’s Pentecostal Assemblies of God Church in the capital city, Lilongwe, will among other issues have special prayer sessions on climate change to be led by the Lutheran Evangelical Church; the family unit and children by the Church of Central Africa Presbytery’s (CCAP) Msungwi Denomination; Malawi and unity by the Livingstonia Synod; and security led by the Zambezi Church.
The theme of the prayers is ‘Jesus is the Answer’ and will start from 8am, touching on Mark 5 vs 25 – 34 to be read by the Free Methodist Church.
Secretary General for the Malawi Council of Churches, Rev. Dr. Osbrone Joda-Mbewe will give a background of the MCCWF. Other speakers and prayers will be conducted by women from the Free Methodist Church, CCAP, Pentecostal Assemblies. The chair-lady central region committee of the forum, Mrs. Phambala will give a word of thanks.
Malawi is reeling to effects of climate change leading to most poor people suffering from floods, droughts and flash rains.
The country is also dogged by family problems and the rising increase of orphans and vulnerable children; is also going through internal socioeconomic related conflicts due to living standard pressures. Malawi is also faced by a growing security problem where crime is becoming rampant.
Malawi also faces a fresh security concern following border conflict with neighbouring Tanzania over the fresh water Lake Malawi.
The prayers will be coordinated by Mrs. Mgongonda of the Lutheran Church.
