Vice President Inonge Wina has urged the church to pray for the country for it to overcome challenges being faced and soldier on to prosperity.

Ms Wina says the nation depends on the prayers of the church for hope, spiritual guidance and protection.

Ms Wina who read Psalms 133 verse 1 said the church should help in building a nation where unity, peace and tranquillity prevails.

Speaking during a church service at Kyawama Evangelical church in Solwezi today, Ms Wina said government will continue maintaining and sustaining the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation as part of the country’s tradition and culture..

“As government, we will continue upholding the declaration of our country as a Christian nation and that is why President Lungu declared October 18 as a day for national prayers were the church takes over and dedicate the nation to God almighty.” She said.

She urged the church to include peace building in Sunday school lessons so that the values of peace can be inculcated in children at a tender age.

“Let me appeal to the church to include peace building in Sunday school lessons so that our children can uphold it even as they grow. Forgiveness and peace should be taught from a young age.” She said.

Ms Wina said all citizens regardless of tribe or political affiliation should embrace One Zambia, one nation not just as a slogan but as a way of life adding that with love, forgiveness and reconciliation the country can achieve a lot.

“Every Zambian should embrace the one Zambia, one nation not just as a slogan but a way of life.” She said.

And Solwezi district ECZ overseer Anthony Fulwe said the Evangelical church will continue praying for the government of the day as instructed by the Bible.

Pastor Fulwe said the church was happy with the many developmental projects that government is undertaking in the province such as the construction of the Solwezi Chingola road, the upgrading of township roads and selected schools among others.

He appealed to government to consider building house of prayers in all provinces where Christians could gather and pray for the country as children of one family.

  1. Our vice president really looks tired. Tired of coming up with lies, tired of surviving on lies & tired of not being respected by men folk in the ruling party. That’s what lies do, they make you grow old.

  2. Ask the church to also pray for the person in Sinda whose eye was gouged out recently as well as the lady who publicly declared that they deserved to be beaten because they provoked your party by wearing opposition regalia. Let us also have another fast on 18th February to give thanks for future attacks on airport runways
