Mr Lusambo was speaking in his welcoming remarks during this year’s National Day of Prayer and reconciliation.

And Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance Godfridah Sumaili said Zambia is a distinguished country with a unique and peaceful environment.

    • The same hands that were being lifted in prayer will continue slapping those who bring out the evil that others expose. Very hypocritical indeed.

    • HEAVENLY BEINGS AND CHRISTIANS ON EARTH CELEBRATE THAT NOBLE DECLARATION – AMEN
      ====================================
      GOD IS MOVED BY THIS DECLARATION
      It however does not mean that we are free from the one roaring like a angry lion seeking who he may devour.
      We gotta be careful!
      When all is said and done. The prize awaits us.

    • Christianity can’t me mandated, declared or imposed on anyone. True Christianity is not by public display, but personal. Anytime you see a nation do this, know it’s hiding something sinister. How can these guys who don’t want to fight corruption lead out at Christian gatherings? This bothers me to the core. Let’s not pretend, PF guys have done so much evil: Rhey steal, kill, divide the nation and are tribal. How on earth can we say they are worth leading out at such gatherings? This is beyond me.

    • Nkana stadium, sounds like a rally against Kambwili & Mwenya Musenge.
      It could have better in Samfya where 20 productive men died this week.

    • Thank You for today Lord & what You’re doing to my country Zambia. My Lord Jesus You’re full of compassion because You know how wicked we humans are. You warn that behold prostitutes, tax collectors, criminals will claim heaven & rest will remain. On the Cross @ Calvary the thief who recognised You went straight to be with You in heaven. We are all thieves but more than any country on earth now there’s no reason for any Zambian to remain behind. We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, we have a day of national prayers & fasting & our national leadership has put God @ centre of everything. Let’s not get caught up in the snare by the devil of hate & preoccupation with worldly things. I pray healing & deliverance. Amen & God Bless Zambia!

    • @Thorn,,,
      That is the hook. Lock you up in a guilty conscious and keep you enslaved perpetually.
      Sin? What is sin?
      One would think murder would be the zenith of sin. But the bible is full of stories where god instructed others to murder. God himself is the number one murderer in the bible.
      Luke 19 vs 27.

      “You do not need the bible to justify love, but no better tool has been devised to justify hate.” -Richard A. Weatherwax

      Only one who is lazy at thinking will not realize this.

  1. What is the real cost of this National Day of Prayer, Fasting and Reconciliation. Tomorrow the “Reconciliation” bit will be thrown right out of the window as PF squares up with the opposition. Haven’t the cadres threatened to beat up Kambwili in any case? Ba Bowman looks like a real thug in that photo despite the suit and tie. What a charade!!

    • Whoever attended this function is a complete id10t. Look at sampa kneeling before thieves. i used to think this f00l had something in the head but he is such a selfish coward. This boy cannot be trusted, he is not a very normal person. These are people who must go to chainama hospital to be examined as suggested by saviour chishimba.

  2. Matthew 21:12-13

    12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

    13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

  4. “Dr.Chaos Theory”, FIRST TELL YOUR HH TO RETURN OUR MONEY HE HAD STOLEN VIA PRIVATIZATION WITH FTJ CHILUBA BEFORE YOU DEMAND FOR US$42 MN FROM PF GOVNT.
    HH got more than US$42 million via privatization,an evil move which sent millions of zambian miners to an early grave!!!atleast for PF Govnt,no Zambian has died because of the purchase of 42 fire engines but YOUR HH KILLED MILLIONS OF MINERS!!
    thousands and thousands of Zambians in kitwe filled Nkana Stadium to its capacity where ECL was!!!SO ECL KEEPS ON WINNING THE HEARTS OF ZAMBIAN VOTERS AS YOUR HH ADDRESSES FOREIGNERS (WHO DONT EVEN VOTE IN ZAMBIA) AT HIS CHALALA HOUSE!!!

    • I loathe your types who keep dossiers to silence people. Go report HH to the ACC so that they investigate him. I don’t give a rats ass about him. But I get upset when imbeciles plunder my tax contributions. I hate the way this country is run.I hate the fact that it’s a third world country. I hate it that Mutati is ever begging. I hate it that the future we are working hard for is bein stollen from my kids. I feel upset that africa is where it is. I feel bad that Zambia is where it is and cretins support the nonsense that is going on.

Just what kind of people are we as Zambians? Mention the name of God and the *****s in masses flock overlooking the facade by the so called President. Wake up people!!!

Mother assured daughter not to worry about others for God listens to her prayers as an individual.

  20. God thank you for Zambia and the Zambians. You are the reason we pray and worship.

    Philippians 1:15-18 New International Version (NIV)

    15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice.

    What matters to me the name of Jesus is lifted up in Zambia. God bless you all.

  21. These are political prayers because they were called for by a politician.
    It’s funny how pipo who reside in lusaka had to go all the way to kitwe so they can be seen by the president.
    We elected you president so you make our lives easier not increase fuel and taxes left right centre.
    We have churches we go to, we won’t follow you just because niba president, hypocrisy is not our portion.

  24. The Bible says everyone has fallen Short of the Glory of God ,I don’t like the pretence of saint Hh,the guy is a pretender, because the fact that you one is not in prison ,it does not mean that you are not a thief,what we say about our leaders really does not matter, one is not HIV positive because they ve not slept with a man or woman but it is by the Grace of God ,let sin be a personal matter, let each one of us search our hearts and confess our sins that is what people were praying for yesterday, be honest to your self, or else we missed the reason for yesterday s prayers.

  25. God can’t be mocked, whatever a man sows that shall he also reap. We should always endeavour to sow good and not evil. It is better to run to God whenever you have a problem or sin than to run away from Him. Therefore, let us all support this noble cause of prayer and fasting. God bless Zambia! Galatians 6:7, 9

  26. Men (including women, boys & girls) aught always pray and not to faint – Luke 18:1. We are blessed to have the leadership who not only have a desire to humble themselves, pray & seek the face of the LORD but they are also leading by example. Let all well-meaning and peace-loving Zambians support this noble cause and Zambia will experience the blessings of the LORD! Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12. God bless Zambia!

  28. It is inhuman and immoral to go and fast and pray when they are refusing to return our stollen belongings. How do you let your minister steal a Diplomats vehicle and abuse the system and then you go and pray. How do youngest Kakoma sit on a females pension and then you go and pray, anti we are Christians. Bring back our things and pay for lost injury time.

  29. There is no CHRISTIAN NATION! What Chiluba did was illegal. All faiths are equal before the Law of the land. When you say you are a Christian Nation, you are putting the country on the same level as ISIS who declared an Islamic State. Zambia is a secular state and get on with all other faiths!

    • True!!
      Thieving Thugs like Kaizer, who will be “deep in prayer” will Brutalise Women, & other fellow citizens, & Mr Humble Christian Pombe will look the other way even shielding his little Pet Brute, coz the Brute knows all the Nasty un- christian secrets like state plunder, & the role of Ugandan Chavula.
      Zambians are perishing from diseases like Cholera that are enabled by lack of proper Governance, & humble Christian Pombe, takes money that could be used to provide clean water, drainage, & garbage collection, & gives it to his religious cheerleader Useless Godfridah.
      ZAMBIA IS WELL & TRULY DOOMED WITH THESE SERPENT CHRISTIANS IN CONTROL.
