People in the country have been reminded that they have not reached the destiny of peace and prosperity, but still working towards the destiny so that all Malawians can praise God.
Giving the sermon Friday at Bingu International Conference Centre in Lilongwe on the National service of Worship to commemorate 49 years of Independency, Moderator of Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) Synod of Livingstonia, Rev. Dr. Timothy Nyasulu said some Malawians are still in poverty.
“There are some things we need to observe for us to get through peace, prosperity and breakthrough. Greedy, too much ambition, proud and anger, all this things come from the fresh and if they can be dealt with, the country will prosper,” Dr. Nyasulu said.
He added that peace and prosperity work together as God is the provider of all. He also said the country needs peace more than war as we have internal wars to deal with such as poverty, corruption and disease which are killing more people.
Dr. Nyasulu further said Malawians need to be united as unity draws God’s attention and these can make the country to be positive to other countries.
He asked Malawians to cooperate as one family and solve the problems in order for the country to further develop.
The Moderator urged all Malawians to thank God and pray all the time for what he has done to the country saying that God’s grace has been with the country for 49 years as there was no war like other countries.
Concurring with Rev Nyasulu, Bishop Gilford Matonga, presiding Bishop of Pentecostal Assemblies of Malawi said God has already blessed natural things that the country can prosper with.
“We have trees, beautiful Lake Malawi and variable stones that the country can use to prosper, but first thing for Malawians to do is to seek peace for the country and not themselves,” Bishop Matonga said.
He asked opposition parties to contribute towards the development of the country by contributing positively towards Government plans.
Bishop Matonga said God gives different gifts to different people and all these can be contributed to the development of the country.
“We all need to pray for the leaders because when they do well we can also do well and when the country prospers and we can also all benefit,” Bishop Matonga preached.
His Lordship Bishop Joseph Zuza, Chairman, Episcopal Conference of Malawi gave his sermon in Tumbuka said Malawians should work together as we praise one God.
The Islamic sermon was given by Sheikh Twaha Saidi of Quadria Muslim Association of Malawi who asked Malawians to pray to God for the country to become more prosperous.
Moderator CCAP Nkhoma Synod, Rev. Vasco Kachipapa who was the chairperson of the officiating clergy said there was no peace, there is no peace and there will be no peace without God.
“Prosperity without God is corrupt and the country will not prosper and there cannot be breakthrough without God,” Rev. Kachipapa said.
This year’s 49 independency celebration are being celebrated under the theme “peace, prosperity and breakthrough.” –Malawi News AgencyFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
