Malawian President Peter Mutharika says  he has noted with great concern that most parts of the country which by now should have received the first rains have not yet received the rains.

President Mutharika: Let us pray

President Mutharika: Let us pray

The President is therefore calling upon all religious leaders and the entire nation to set  side this coming weekend, (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) the 12th,13th and 14 of December 2014, to dedicate time within their normal service of worship and pray for Good rains across the country.

In a statement issued by State House deputy press secretary,  Mutharika has  also appealed to  those that congregate at lunch hour fellowships, night of prayers, youth prayer groups, women’s prayer groups and other religious gatherings during this week and beyond.

“To those who can fast the President is calling upon them to do so,” reads the statement.

For this reason the State President requests all religious mother bodies to encourage their followers to attend these prayers.

“The State President is also appealing to all cabinet Ministers, senior government officials, and members of parliament, Leaders of all political Parties, Civil Society leaders and Traditional leaders to attend these prayers in their respective or nearest places of worship,” reads the statement.

Mr Prez there is alot of Water in Malawi which if used wisely can have plenty of food on every table in every household in Malawi.Instead of spending money on the useless Beam of sweeping road sidesSt,You can buy irrigation equipment and suck plenty of water from lake Malawi and rivers all over Malawi than always thinking of enriching yourself with hard earned tax payers money by paying yourself eye watering salaries with your friend Saulos.Start irrigation now.Dont wait for the unpredictable rains.

There is plenty of water in our lake and rivers like Shire where we can earnestly embark on irrigation. We can produce sufficient food to feed our nation. Our leaders should stop dreaming when we have many opportunities at your disposal. The vice president went to learn how the Israelis are doing the agriculture sector so that we can emulate their best practices! Possibly, the trip was just for allowances!

we are buay cutting down trees thereby disrupting the hydrological cycle. instead oz addressing the root cause of the problem our leader is calling for prayers. God gave us a balanced ecosystem but we are destroying it ourselves. we are deliberately turning a blind eye on this mwss of our own making. Dont call for prayers mr president but you ajould instead address problems of environmental degradation!!!!

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.Titus 1:16 says, they claim to know God but their actions they deny him. While Revelation 21:8 explains that; But thecowardly the unbelieving the vile the murderers the sexual immoral, those who practice witchcraft idolators all liars…..Revelation 9:21Nor did they repent of their murders their magic arts their sexual immorality or their theft.As the nation we have sinned. And we need to… Read more »
