Action speaks louder than words
“October 18th shall for ever, for ever a be a day of prayer and fasting in Zambia” declared President Lungu, and the innocent souls of the Republic said Amen.
Why is it however, difficulty to follow the tenets of the word of God which are enshrined in forgiveness by the same president?
In prayer we seek forgiveness, as a matter of fact we also ask God to give us grace to forgive others. The later is however very hard to do. Does God still forgive us when we refuse to show mercy to others?
“Mathew 6: 14- “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”. I guess the continued fall of the Kwacha is another way of God saying, I refuse to forgive you, because you refuse to forgive others.
I expected the president to come out renewed spiritually with some heavenly bold and practical action items
At the end of last prayer and fasting, 18th October, I expected the president to come out renewed spiritually with some heavenly bold and practical action items. The removal of the unfair law in Public Order Act, because we serve a fair God. Second, I expected him to speak to his cabinet to stop with immediate effect the mad slinging of political opponents. The country prayed for unity, the continued divisive tribal talk by PF bemba ministers does not come from above. If the next election will also be decided on tribal lines, you should know the end of our 51-year old republic is near.
The people of North Western ,Western , Copperbelt rural ,much of Central and greater Lusaka Provinces will very much like the tribal politics notched upwards, because a divided Zambia will leave their mineral rich areas to the control of Bantu Botatwe control. Mr President you are playing with fire.
Two days after prayer and fasting Chief Government Spokesman Ba Kambwili warned radio phoenix with revocation of radio license for opening its doors to the opposition parties, eish, what a harsh God we worship in Zambia.
Vice president Inonge Wina has just warned HH with arrest under the Public Order Act, if he continues behaving like a free citizen of Zambia in the Copperbelt. I could take this kind of behavior from Kambwili, not mama Wina. She is the pillar of decency in the nation, the mother for all of us.. Why has thou abandoned prayer for cheap politics mama Wina.
President Lungu , you are a good man and you hold a solemn duty to hold this country together. Show the nation “Prayer and fasting was not just a political ploy to take advantage of poor weak innocent naive Christian believing Zambians. Actions speaks louder than words Mr President.
