The economic and governance problems and erratic rainfall in Malawi have forced churches to hold national prayers on Friday in Blantyre to pray for God’s intervention.
The prayers are convened by Malawi Council of Churches which is an umbrella body of all churches and religious groups.
Rev. Osborne Jodda Mbewe said on Wednesday that the prayers will involve all churches and religious groups.
“We want to pray for rain. We have economic and governance problems and we want to ask God to intervene,” said Mbewe.
Mbewe said the Episcopal Conference of Malawi, Evangelical Association of Malawi, the CCAP, Muslim Association of Malawi and the Pentecostal churches among others will be involved in the prayers.
President Bingu wa Mutharika has been invited but it is not known whether he will attend.
At last prayers in the just ended year, head of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi, His Grace Bishop Joseph Mukasa Zuza described any person who does not take advice from others as foolish (Chindere Chakufikapo) , a remark Mutharika felt was referring at him.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
