FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STATEMENT BY PF SOUTHERN PROVINCE INFORMATION AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY – TRYMORE MWENDA
ON NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
The PF leadership in Southern Province is calling upon all Zambians to turn out in numbers on Wednesday, 18th October, 2017 in the National Prayer Day, declared by His Excellency President Edgar Lungu on October 18, 2015.
The Party is pleased that despite some people trying to derail the event, the call for national prayers has received massive support from all Christians in our entire province who are believers in the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The Bible says, 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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land this is according to 2 Chronicles 7:14.
The declaration by the President has continued to remind us Zambians that the Head of State is a God fearing leader, who wants not only the Church, but the entire citizenry to submit themselves and surrender the nation before God.
What started as a remote call by President Lungu when he declared October 18, as a day of Prayer, Fasting and Reconciliation, has contributed to the growing commitment of upholding christian values and preserving peace by citizens through fear of the Lord.
As stated above, the Spirit of God has for many years prevailed over this country as evidenced in the relative peace and stability the country has enjoyed since independence from Britain in 1964, when most of our neighbours were grappling with internal conflicts.
We are all aware that the main goal behind this day is to call upon the Lord to bring Love, unity, reconciliation, peace and hope to the nation. We believe that this is the best chance that Zambians have to put behind areas of differences and build on areas of common interest for the greater good of the country.
We therefore encourage Zambians in all Southern Province Districts to show commitment on that day and attend prayer meetings in their respective areas.
