Patriotic Front (PF) Southern Province information and publicity secretary Trymore Mwenda is calling on Zambians to turn out in numbers on 18th October, 2017 for the National Prayer Day, fasting and reconciliation.

In a statement unveiled to Pan African Radio news, Mwenda said the National Prayer Day, fasting and reconciliation has contributed to the growing commitment of upholding Christian values and preserving peace by citizens in the country.

And Mwenda has urged Zambians to ensure that they commit themselves on that day and attend prayer meetings in their respective areas for the continuity of peace and harmony in Zambia which is key to national development.

Below is the full statement

Monday 16th October, 2017





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.


  1. Another scam from the Pure Fools (PF)…sorry it won’t work this time around after all the corruptions and the lies…good luck folks…

    • Another scam from the Pure Fools (PF)…sorry it won’t work this time around after all the corruptions and the lies…good luck folks…

  2. I thought this is a church function to be driven by the church and not political parties! It seems political parties have hijacked it! I will not go for this reason

    • I expect all those tribalists who gathered for the political show of at cathedral celebrating the release of one notorious criminal to attend in masses and prove to us that they indeed meant what they were crying for. This is a gazetted day of worship and no need for a police permit required. If indeed you wanted to thank God for releasing hh why not do it were you have absolute freedom and space to do it. Failure to participate will vindicate what some of us said about your meeting at cathedral.

    • Matthew 6: 5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard

  3. I know this thought is not popular .

    Why do we need this? Shouldn’t they be working hard for people instead of wasting time and tax payers money like this. Prayer doesn’t seem to be working when it comes to wiping out corruption.

    Prayer seems to be used as a substitute for laziness.

  4. Luciferian pray also to their god. Christians don’t be part of this abomination? Only lucifer can well come prayers on this day because he is a deceiver like the PF. Wake up Christians and pray at all the time at your homes not in stadiums because it is a day abomination. The presence of God don’t come through deception and corruption.

  5. “day of National Prayers” ????

    More like CORRUPTION AND THIEVERY hiding in a sheepskin of Religion!

    What are these PF THIEVES praying for ? That they will not be caught and jailed for the $42 MILLION Fire Truck scandal? That Mutati will get $1.2 BILLION so they can keep stealing?

    My prayer – God of Justice and Righteousness, please show these HYPOCRITES your power and make them repent their EVIL DEEDS>

    Dishonest Violent Corrupt P.F Kawalala’s looking to the skies wailing God God!!
    As soon as they leave that SHAM Prayer meeting, Its Corruption business, & BuchendE as usual.

  7. Please dont waste your time with this nonsense….wake up people. How can you pray with people who can not even tell you how they are spending your own money!!

  8. What is the real purpose of the National Prayer Day? U can only reconcile if u own up and know the differences that divides us.Lungu needs to spell out the objectives of the prayers.U need to confess first then apologize and only then can u be forgiven. U can forgive but u cant forget about stolen election,unheard Petition,incarceration of HH for 127 days,corruption etc. That should be the focus of the National Prayers.Prayers without Action are Futile.

  9. This is abuse of religion for political purposes.What has become of Zambians? It seems we have abandoned all virtue,hard work and reason to seek easy solutions to our largely self -made problems.This is superstition on the same level with witchcraft and satanism.

  10. I will continue praying for world peace in the comfort of my home and while at work . Do you really have to drag people out to pray for a corrupt establishment? Those thieving individuals , they know who they are , should confess their hypocrisy, thieving and cruel acts before they can preach reconciliation .
    Shouting out praise and hallelujah words alone is not good enough if you’re not prepared to confess and forgive yourself of the bad things. We are all sinners of course, but if you continue to commit the same sin and knowing that it is against the Christian values, you’re wasting your breath.
