THE Bible Gospel Church in Africa (BIGOCA) says no politician must encourage citizens to shun the October 18 National Day of prayer and fasting because wisdom on how to govern the nation comes from God.

Bishop Peter Ndhlovu said politicians should always seek the face of God on how best to govern the nation saying some challenges could only be changed by God ‘ s power.

“Politicians must never joke with the word of God, if they are doing so because they hate the one who made the declaration, then they are jokers who should not be allowed to rule the country,” he said.

He said no one politician should expect to be a leader when he or she did not want to pray and fast for the same country he or she hoped to govern.

Bishop Ndhlovu said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that said most politicians had failed to progress in their political life as a result of not seeking God for wisdom and guidance.

” This is one of the greatest proclamation President Edgar Lungu has made for the nation, the country is faced with a number of challenges, politicians, Professors, Doctors and experts have failed to find solutions, in this case the country needs national prayers,” he said.

The Bishop said those denying joining citizens in prayer and fasting were denying themselves blessings and the right to live because God was the giver of life and wisdom.

He said it was sad that the declaration of the National Day of Pray and Fasting had been politicised by others at the expense of Gods divine intervention of the many challenges facing the country and the entire globe.

“To you politicians take out your pride and seek the word of God on this day, why do you only want to attend church during campaigns only, let all churches wherever they maybe join in praying for the nation,” Bishop Ndhlovu said.

He said praying for the nation should be a constant phenomenon.

  1. BISHOP PLEASE RECALL THAT EVERY TIME THE NATION OF ISREAL WAS IN CRISIS MOSES AS THEIR LEADER UNDERSTOOD THAT THE MOST EFFECTIVE PRAYER HE COULD INVOKE AS A LEADER WAS THAT WHICH HE PRACTICED IN ISOLATION AND COMMUNICATED ONLY WITH GOD. MOSES WOULD ISOLATE HIMSELF AND GO TO THE MOUNTAINS TO PRAY FOR THE NATION. HE KNEW THAT PRAYER WAS PERSONAL UNDERSTANDING AND COMMUNICATION OPPORTUNITY THAT WAS PERSONAL WITH GOD. WHAT LUNGU IS PERFORMING IS A PARADE.NOT PRAYER. INFACT THE BIBLE ACTUALLY FORBIDS USING THE LORDS NAME IN VAIN. PLEASE LETS BE CAREFUL HOW WE USE GODS NAME. IF LUNGU WANTS TO SEEK THE GUIDANCE AND DIRECTION OF GOD IN LEADING OUR NATION. HE NEEDS TO STOP THIS PARADE AND SEEK GOD LIKE MOSES DID. NOT FOR SHOW BUT GENUINELY SEEK HIS GUIDANCE. THIS IS NOTHING BUT A POLITICAL…

    • . THIS IS NOTHING BUT A POLITICAL STUNT OF APPEASEMENT OF THE MASSES AND IS BLASPHEMOUS. REMEMBER THOU SHALT NOT USE THE NAME OF THE LORD IN VAIN!

  2. Why is it that the main stream Churches like the Catholics, Baptists, SDA, New Apostolic, Anglicans, Lutherans, Dutch Reformed etc are not excited about this day? Even Muslims and Hindus aren’t exited! Why should the Pentecostals take it so personal? It beats me!

  3. Speak for yourself you fake pastor. You are behaving like kambwili who is scared of losing his seat should the mines retrench them workers. Are you scared of losing your offerings ?

  4. Is it a matter of forcing? Our President just declared the day and did not say ‘I am commanding that you all attend’. When Jesus Christ was faced with temptations and impending crucifixion, he went in the mountains to pray and fast alone. Some of us follow the example of our Lord Jesus and not parades as a show off to mortal men.

  5. I would not allow Lungu the Muslim jihadist in my church because when we close our eyes to pray, he and his tandem of thieves will be stealing the offertory

  6. The true intentions of this PF Public Relations Project are beginning to come out. All fake pastors who know very little about how God the Almighty works will be used by PF and PF media to get at their political opponents. They will be quoting isolated and uncoordinated pieces of scripture to influence the gullible. What a shame. Stop using the name of the Lord in vain. Zambian politicians are corrupt to the core, they are deceitful and manipulative. They fund and sponsor political violence. They should repent without involving us!

  7. What do you mean not excited, do you want those churches to begin blowing trumpets? They tend to reflect quietly.

  8. What do you mean ‘not excited’, do you mean most of those churches to begin blowing trumpets? They tend to reflect quietly, you see.

  9. How can a little prayer hurt anyone? So much fuss from a bunch of obese citizens needing a little holding back to allow heavenly intervention.

    Come along folks, this is harmless.

  10. Jameson declared a day of prayer & fasting. He didn’t say we should all meet under a tree to show we are fasting.
    People like this Ndlovu have always stood on the side of the corrupt. Its not for me to judge them but I will never follow them.
    HH has not stopped anyone to “attend”, he’s just given the collective position of UPND as a party.

  11. Prayer is harmless and it doesn’t matter who calls for prayer we should all pray. Things are bad in this country right now and we seriously need to pray. We need to pray firstly for wisdom to turn the economy around, then pray for rain, for peace, for harmony and for all our leaders. When I say leaders, I also include all opposition leaders. In times of trouble we need to stand together and pray without suscipicions. Let’s just pray together for once!

  12. IT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT 6+6+6 =18. MISHECK SHADRECK AND ABEDNIGO RUFUSED TO BOW DOWN TO THE SOUND OF THE TUMPET AND BY FAITH THEY WERE DELIVERED FROM THE FURNACE.DANIEL REFUSED TO BOW AT THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET AND WAS DELIVERED FROM THE LIONS DEN. THE BIBLE IS VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT MASS WORSHIP AND HOW AND WHEN IT SHOULD CONDUCTED. COUNTLESS EXAMPLES OF NATIONS IN CRISIS AND THE LEADERS OF ISREAL SORT GOD GUIDANCE IN RETREAT. THE BIBLE WARNS US ABOUT 666 STUDY YOUR BIBLES AND GET AN UNDERSTANDING ON YOUR OWN.THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS (666) 6+6+6=18. LUNGU CALLED FOR A NATIONAL DAY OF WORSHIP ON THE 18TH. I AM OUT TO EACH OUR OWN. 666 ADDS TO 18TH.
