Former NAREP National Secretary Reverend Jevan Kamanga has joined different sections of society in condemning United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema for opposing the National Day of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance set for October 18, 2015.

In a statement released to the media Reverend Jevan Kamanga, urged Zambians to ignore Mr Hichilema’s call to shun the day of prayers.

Below is the full statement

IGNORE MR. HAKAINDE HICHILEMA’S CALL TO SHUN DAY OF PRAYER

We are very disappointed and disturbed by the statement coming from Mr. Hakainde Hichilema in downplaying the day of prayer which was called by HE Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, President of the Republic of Zambia. Mr. Hichilema is quoted as saying “the 18th October Day of Prayer will be a mockery to God”. This shows how little Mr. Hichilema understands the Word of God.

I have serious doubts in leaders like Mr. Hichilema who behave in such a manner as being displayed right now. At the SDA conference in Heroes Stadium, Mr. Hichilema refused to Honor the Head of State. In Kasama, him and his friend GBM refused to even give respect to the Head of State when he attend the installation of Chief Chitimukulu. These behaviours are against the demands of the Word of God according to Romans 13 vs. 5 – 7

“[5] Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
[6] This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.
[7] Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”

Now Mr. Hichilema wants to throw cold water on a just cause meant to unite, heal and reconcile people through forgiveness and prayer. What does he really want? Where does he stand with regards to spiritual matters? And if he claims to be an Elder in a respectable movement in our country, then let him tell us why he goes against basic teachings of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

Let me offer a quick scriptural basis for the Day of Prayer as summoned by the Head of State quoting 2 Chronicles 7 vs. 13 – 16.

“[13] “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people,
[14] if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
[15] Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
[16] I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.”

Again, Joe 1 vs. 14 records, “Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD.”

Does Mr. Hichilema even know what can happen if God got upset with any of us? He must know his limits and not pull our Almighty God in his selfish pursuit to plot one.

Ladies and gentlemen, there are many scriptures that encourage people to seek God in prayer whenever they face crises of any kinds. Our country is facing a lot of challenges today most of which are beyond man’s effort. The last thing one wants to hear is that we don’t need God or that God is upset with us. Does Mr. Hichilema even know what can happen if God got upset with any of us? He must know his limits and not pull our Almighty God in his selfish pursuit to plot one.

If anything, the Bible encourages us to pray for those in authority according to 1 Timothy 2 vs. 1 – 4 which gives us instructions on Worship

“[1]I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone-
[2] for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
[3] This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
[4] who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

It is therefore in order for the HE Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu to call for a consecrated assembly to seek the face of God for His intervention in our situations. Mr. Hichilema has told the nation that he will not attend the Prayer meeting. What’s new? Why is he afraid? Does he want the country to continue in the state it is in now? Does he think this situation will sort of help or usher him into State House? No. By refusing to attend this National Day of Prayer, Mr. Hichilema is signaling to us that he doesn’t love forgiveness, reconciliation, peace, unity, and healing.

What’s new? Why is he afraid? Does he want the country to continue in the state it is in now? Does he think this situation will sort of help or usher him into State House? No.

In conclusion, I want to appeal to the people of Zambia to ignore Mr. Hichilema’s call and unite for a common good to see our land healed and restored. The Kitwe Pastors have started the ball rolling and it’s my humble appeal to all Pastor’s Fellowships around the country to emulate our Kitwe brothers and sisters and take lead in praying for mother Zambia.

Seeing that the 18th of October will be a Sunday, I want to propose that people meet in their various churches and then around 12h00, we can converge in designated stadia. We have done this before and we can do it again.

Thank you and may God bless you.

    • And on Monday, 19th October 2015, our prayers shall be answered:
      Parity (1 : 1) of Kwacha vs. US Dollar; 2,000,000 million new jobs created overnight, inflation actually drooped to 7%; price of copper rocketed to 25,000 USD/t.; imbecility eradicated; PF notables return stolen Billions; rule of law reestablished and “Nubian Princess” IQ increased from imbecility level to respectable 69!!!

    • Too much superstition in Zambia and Politicians are making it worse using the tool of propaganda, and of course the fearful, ignorant and gullible easily fall for it. While progressive countries are focused on ensuring that their citizens live quality lives with tangible results, Zambia is distracted with issues of superstition.

    • PEOPLE SIN BY SELF. AND HAVE SELF-INFLICTED GUILTY AND THE RESULTS OF IT. DOES GOD STOP SUCH A ONE FROM PRAYING TO HIM? NO! JESUS ONCE SAID: ” I CAME FOR SINNERS NOT FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE”.. AND THE BIBLE CONDEMNS BEING “RIGHTEOUS OVERMUCH” THINKING U ARE MORE BETTER THAN OTHERS. WHO ARE YOU TO SIT IN JUDGEMENT OF A SINNER WHO WANTS TO PRAY AND TELL HIM NOT TO PRAY? LET GOD BE THE ONE TO DECIDE WHETHER TO LISTEN TO SUCH PRAYERS OR NOT.

      ANYONE STOPPING OR DISCOURAGING PEOPLE TO PRAY STANDS IN OPPOSITION NOT TO MAN BUT TO GOD, COZ PRAYER IS A REQUIREMENT FROM GOD. LET THEM PRAY AS THEY FEEL LIKE AND GOD HIMSELF WHO THEY ARE PRAYING TO WILL DECIDE.

    • HH is destined to become the president of Zambia wether he attends fake prayers or not. The fact is that all so called pastors supporting edgar lungu on his call for day of national prayer are doing so because they have been bought by Edgar lungu from the change what remained from his loot of $300 000.
      Edgar Lungu has invited more sangomas at state house than pastors since he assumed office early this year.

    • @Reverend Jevan Kamanga;
      You the so called pastros that abuse church members on the pretex of tithes and offerings. Who does not know that you are saying so just cath political attention from Edgar Lungu so that he can give you some money?
      You are satanically aware that your Edgar Lungu has spent $350 000 just on chartering a plane when the majority Zambians are wallowing in poverty. But yet you are the first person in the church to demand for money from them but you will not mind the sweat that comes out of them when loooking fir the same money provided your belly and those of your familly members is full. what a shame. If I were you Reveland, i would quite pastorial duties and concertrates with politics of the belly.

    • Believe the quack reverend let him believe his own. Leave it to HH and his opinion on the called prayers as only himself is answerable to God on matters of God. There are many different opinions expressed on these prayers so no one need make capital of it. Reverend please stay in your lane! Will all those that will not heed the call be obliterated from the face of Zambia? Nothing is optimal for all thus the power of choice that God gave His creations.

    • Maybe this Rev should have read the whole Bible to clearly see that this call for prayers is vanity.
      Isaiah 1:10-17(KJV)
      10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
      11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
      12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
      13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
      14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they…

      14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
      15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
      16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
      17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

      Jeremiah 14 (KJV):
      10 Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
      11 Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
      12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
      13 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.

      15 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
      16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

HAS MUMBI PHIRI AND DAVIS CHAMA EVER APOLOGIZED TO THOSE WHOM THEY HAVE OFFENDED? HOW MANY TIMES HAS PF KILLED AND BRUTALIZED INNOCENT PEOPLE LIKE KAMPASA AND LAND OWNERS. A GOOD CHRISTIAN MUST STAND AND STCK TO HIS MORAL GROUNDS WHEN IS WRONGED.

  2. Under 5 should have stayed out of this one. He needs to learn to control, and ultimately curb his naivety and hunger and thirsty for visibility over common sense if he is to be accepted as a leader who is humble, inclusive and listens ..am afraid Edgar Jameson, Tobwa, Katata, Mbamba (add whatever beer name you can) Lungu is running away with this one despite his middle names that are Christians are against. Zambians and their Chiefs are beginning to accept our beer man as a humble leader who they can trust. And make no mistake, backward or whatever you might choose it label it, majority of Zambians are deeply religious and HH stand wont help his cause but enforce those allegations against him from some fake Bishop.

    • Job seeker. Shut up. There is a difference between being religious and being a Christian. Most Zambians are religious, yes. That is why you are thieves, extortioners and rapists. I am waiting to see whether Lungu will stop drinking on 19/10. Leave HH out this tribal worship.

      Why do you UPND cadres so paranoid about tribe and see everything through tribe. I didn’t mention tribe in my post why the tribal worship you bring up. And hey am have a job and am not looking for a Job from a beer man, am just MMD watching this show from the sidelines which everybody knows it is a fight between UPND and PF..you see that is the naivety you are exhibiting that we talking about, basically zeal without knowledge, of course I know the difference between Christianity and religion. Free Mason is a religion too and so is satanism.

    • Personally I can not judge him on this. I as a Christian I understand and believe that he is a Christian and therefore he has the right to fast or not to fast on that day. Zambians we need to wake up and realize that there’s more to Christianity than just saying let us fast on this day, this does not make one Christ like. How has Edgar and the people talking ill about HH been living their lives in the past? Have they been living a Godley life? Or they know what makes Zambians gullible? To my fellow Zambians I say you can fast all you want, you can tell the whole world how Zambia is a Christian nation, but if your hearts are busy talking ill and hating on others. Zambia will be the same a country without proper hospitals, schools, roads, and you will still be enjoying load shedding 51…

      Failure to respond point-for-point to issues HH has said only goes to confirm that HH is right. Using degrading language and unsuccessful attempt to change the subject only goes to reinforce HH’s points. But then again, you are living up to your pseudo name. You have morphed into an Ostrich that buries its head in sand.

    • The truth is, no one should at all be fearful when they come into God’s presence. He is not there waiting to punish people for their mistakes and failures. His light is not for exposing their sins and shame, or for condemning them. No, His glorious light is for showing us how perfectly His Son’s blood has washed away our sins! That is why Jesus could tell the woman that was caught committing adultery, He did not condemn her—because He would be condemned for her sin as well as ours at the cross.

    • You UPND cadres , can you please make up your mind? Can you name one sin in the bible or crisis which was never self inflicted? Is that what Free Mason-ism teaches. My Friend ALL sin and I mean ALL sin is self inflicted and stems from disobedience. The Fall of Man, is self inflicted and God did not sit back and say it is self inflicted let them just suffer. I think UPND interpretation of Christianity is blinded by their thirst for plot one at all cost.

      Again if France , China, UK and Japan are powerful and ungodly, does it follow that you are saying that we have to become UnGodly to get out of our problems? This is why we say that UPND is Free Masonic and does not believe in God at all.

With this kind of mindset, we will always lag behind and this why even clueless crooks like Lungu are able to ascend to power because we are too myopic as a people.

      Today Lungu is in statehouse partly because of false propaganda directed at their main rival in the last elections on issues of religion, and they still want to play the same cards to disadvantage him in the forth coming elections and the silly thing is, we the sloppy Zambians are too naïve to read between the lines.

  15. If at all FDD, UPND and others who have concerns about the National Prayer and fasting day decide to attend, their prayer focus should be for Credible Honest Leaders and Government workers, Education opportunities for Zambians because the illiteracy levels in Zambia is a major concern as the majority of Zambians are failing to articulate issues and instead are using a lot of emotions, Freedom of Assembly and expression and opportunities for the Public Order Act to be abolished, opportunities for sponsored violence by Politicians to be dealt with firmly by the law and every involved Politician to be held accountable.

Opportunities for ECZ to be structured and their standards to meet the expectations of all local stakeholders. Opportunities for Road Safety to be addressed .

  16. If this call to prayers was an idea by OP they must be recommended. HH fell right into the trap by shunning prayers which are supported by the majority of Voters. He has alienated himself further than he thinks. This call to prayers is a blessing in disguise for lungu. HH if you have advisors you need to change them. Right from issuance of this call I knew you were going to alienate yourself if you refused to attend. Get in touch with LT for my contact details and you be getting the best spin doctor.. don’t leave it to late.

      After mast abating, you thought you should also pass a comment. Sometimes my brother, remaining quite is golden than exposing your folishness and ignorance. Remember my dear; God cannot be mocked.
      Edgar Lungu is a man worshiping sangomas and mismanaging funds.
      How to you explain the misuse of close $360 000 just on hiring the aircraft and taking musicians and other useless carders likeMumbi Phiri. Is that godly? Be realistic Patrick and stop day dreaming.
      EDGAR LUNGU IS HIMSELF A MUSLIM.

      I don’t support Edgar lungu nor his corrupt GRZ but I comment on the political realities, this is like a game of chase brother, don’t get too emotional.
      Politics is a game of manipulation, the best man wins. If HH is so ignorant to fall for such gimmicks like shunning prayers that the majority support he will lose. Some times you go against your principles. Churches have the largest congregations of Voters gathered in one place on Sundays, now if you can manipulate them to vote for you, you will have gained a lot of votes. Simple, forget good guys or bad guys, it’s all about manipulation of the illitrate masses.

    • Patrick, what do you mean by majority? I am one of the majority and I support HH. Those are shum prayers from CHAKOLWA. If the prayers were organized by a reputable organization, YES. Not Chakolwa , Kambwili and Chama, forget. May be you just want to harm him there.
      HH, don’t go there, you don’t know these guys’ motives. They will can kill you. Why are they so worried about you not going to church. How many people don’t go to church? Let them go and pray. They have devil minds including the writer of this article.

      By the majority I mean the pipo who don’t vote for HH. He has never won an election, one can safely say the majority did not vote for him. HH is seen by the majority as ‘pompus, not one of us’. Now do you think him excluding himself and not attending prayers where a large part of the electorate will be helps??. as I said, this is all about manipulation and persuasion of the illitrate masses, who unfortunately make up the larger Zambian population. He is excluding him self. Not a good move. Belive me this is a big stick which PF will beat him at every chance.

  18. The point people are missing is that HH has been a victim of government brutality. It doesn’t pay for him to pretend that he has forgiven while his pain is not apologized for. If i were a pastor and sane, I would encourage a secrete meeting among the leaders for them to dialogue before getting into pretense. I urge all the pastors to chew the money they have been given, stand on the roof top and shout that we are holly, heal our economy and we forgive. I also urge those who are hurting to stay home, pray for their sins, ask God to intervne in their situation until those who hurt them aplogise! It is hypocrisy of the highest order to go to the alter and offer sacrifice when you need to first say sorry to the offended!

  21. MMD Chief Bootlicker, firstly I just hope you are aware that MMD is dead and yet you are still licking it. it shows how confused you are. Secondly even during the so called day of prayer and fasting, EL and PF will be scheming to devide the nation further. They will also be scheming how to milk the national coffers further to enrich themselves. Mismanagement of the economy is a choice and not an act of God so to say. They can declare everyday a national day of prayer and fasting and nothing will happen without deliberate good governance.

    • Do not get too excited, most likely it will be 50/50 in terms of vote sharing in CB and Lusaka this time around and that is all HH needs to carry the day. Remember u barely survived by a whisker in the last election (20,000 votes) and this was as a result of vote manipulation by the govt machinery-dear,in African politics any opposition leader losing by that small margin only means one thing-that is,he has been dribbled! So if I were u, I wouldn’t bank too much on these two regions especially that there are the ones hit most by load shedding and economic mismanagement. Mulimbe ba PF in 2016!!

A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.”

I’m not a supporter of any politician, but the manner in which some people are criticizing HH is quite unfair and we must look at the issue in a broader sense. HH is simply not convinced that the call for such prayers is genuine and hence distancing himself from attending. Does that really make him a satanist? There are many people who do not attend such meetings but that does not make them satanists. It is a pity that Zambians are always fooled and taken for granted in the name prayers and Christianity. I feel pity for the people of Zambia who fail to reason and think outside the box when it comes such contentious issues.

      Elections are won by manipulation and persuasion, not excluding your self from large congregations of voters who are found in churches every Sunday throughout the country. Bad move by HH, he has given PF a very effective weapon to use against him. Imagine if all preachers present him negatively to their congregants Who are all voters ??.

Lungu is deliberately running down the Zambian economy knowing that on 18th October God will restore the economy to its former glory. Lungu is causing untold suffering on a lot of people deliberately, allowing Davis Chama, Chishimba Kambwili and Mumbi Phiri to continue insulting and demeaning Tongas deliberately without remorse and yet this pastor wants to sound hollier than thou. Mr Pastor, if you were reasonable, you should have taken the initiative to reconcile the politicians like what Nevers Mumba did with Chiluba and Kaunda. But Because you’re a pastor in the category of prophets who turn water into paraffin, are more interested in donations from stolen money, you can not deceive me and other reasonable Zambians…

A number of pharisees, including Jevan Kamanga, have suddenly sprung up on market corners to proclaim that they are holier than thou.

It therefore important to pay attention to the call for national prayers even if they were called by the devil himself because he may have an opportunity to repent too. If we heal our nation…
