Christian coalition shun national day of prayer but will use it to educate on importance of voting

File:Zambians in prayer 2015

Christian Coalition Secretary General Dr. Paul Mbulo says they will not participate in the day of National Prayer and Fasting which will be held on 18th October.

Dr Mbulo said this is because the event is more political and has failed to meet the aspirations of Ephesians 4:3 on making every effort to keep the unity of the Nation through the bond of peace.

He said it’s time Zambia learnt from the United States how to mark this important event.

He said in the US where the National Day of Prayer started in 1952, it has helped build bridges between opposing persons and political parties.

Dr Mbulo noted that prayer can bring unity in Zambia if only the day of National Prayer, fasting and reconciliation is held after political leaders have reconciled and they all participate in this important event.

Dr. Mbulo added that Government should allow the Church to take the lead and invite Christians and not cabinet office.

He said his organisation has since directed their members to use this day to educate Christians within their constituencies on the importance of voting in 2021.

    • This is what I have been saying as well.

      Boycott the national gathering in stadiums.

      Spend the day with your families and friends citizens. You can go to church, or visit people in hospitals.

      But do not go to the stadiums to support corruption and thievery.

      What nonsense, this national day of prayers.

      Let Lungu and his groupies go there. Let him invite the Chinese if he wants.

    • Good and Well done.
      Those who want to do so, they can. This is not compulsory. As I commented a few days ago, the fact that Davies Mwila and Raphael Nakachinda were commenting on this urging other political parties to join, they were actually making this event political one. Such calls should be made by the churches.
      Pray for the Zambian People to have food on their plates, and give the children hope to be entitled to at least 3 meals a day.

    • He couldn’t have said it better. In the meantime i have to make sure my beers are chilled and the bbq goes smoothly as you PFChristians wail and gnash your teeth.

    • We told you when praying with Lung-wu, keep one eye open.
      Lung-wu is using prayer to pull wool on the eyes of gullible fake christians.

      Last week PF remorselessly killed a small girl at UNZA, this week they’ve bought 2 jets at $400 million for Lung-wu. Today they says it’s time to close our eyes & pray. The thunder that will strike these PF thieves is still doing press-ups.

  1. There is still sense in Zambia!

    God has given us the Ability, Wisdom and sense to do what is right by us…

    How the African Church Reduces Your Self-Esteem…

    This idea of calling for prayers for things that God has already given us the power to solve is what is keeping us behind. I refuse to participate in a national day of prayer, to solve problems caused by the same people who called for the day of prayer, and problems that can be solved by the same people. Am having a braii on that date.

    • “Dr” Mbulo is like “Dr” Chishimba Kambwili. If you don’t want to be part of the national day of prayers, d you need to issue a press statement? APC claims that the day is political but read Mbulo’s statement and see who is playing politics

  2. When a wind of change comes in this country no one is going to stop it and I see that change coming in 2021.Infact it came in 2016.It is just that those elections were rigged. Almost everything is wrong about this regime. I hold the Lord God in the Highest Esteem but praying for self-created problems! no, no, no.Let them go and pray on their own. They are just going to pray that they become richer and richer and kill more and more innocent students.Shame!

    Righton! Might as well because Lungu and his minions just pretend and use this national day of prayer cow manure to continue brainwashing people and subjugating them into docility so they don’t rise against his evil regime… Zambians instead of being militia and actively stand up for what’s right continue using God in vain, @ God will punish them or God will come and solve the problems for us.

    • Chimtengo, you don’t even need this day in the first place. Don’t get me wrong, you have to pray for its the almighty God who gives us life, but not these political prayers. You saw last year that just days after the prayers, the political language from both the PF and UPND was very inflammatory. Of course we still expect these two indiscplined parties to be quarrelling after the prayers, but the level of quarrelling just after prayers was a source of concern last year and it will be the same this year.

    • Ati HH “Economist” as though there is an educated person but just a little UNDER FIVE who is a PRIVATIZATION THIEF and CHILDISH leader of a TRIBALISM group.

    • USELESS DEMONIC NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYERS, CREATED TO;
      * Legitimise the useless Taxpayer draining Ministry of Religious affairs, which ensues wig wearing cadre Godfridah’s belly is kept full, @ the expense of starving U.N.Z.A students & citizen’s
      * Pull wool over already gullible docile Zedian’s, to ensure they NEVER question Jona Chakolwa’s pludner, drunkenness & misrule.
      * Ensure you NEVER question this Violent intolerant P.F Cabal, who constantly injure citizens rights, & freedoms. This P.F virus even uses Panga’s amongst its own, just look at the infighting & violence, when its time for them to be adopted for posts within the party.
      After all the violence, & insults /uncouth language, these hypocrites, dust themselves off, & very next day head for their Sham “National Day…

    • cont;
      their Sham “National Day of Prayers, as if all is well, & their Devilish practices are just a normal course if the day.
      Up to date, Jona plundered the treasury of scarce finances, gave the cash to Cadres, thanking them for campaigning for him, by setting up the Bogus inquiry to probe pre & post election violence, when Jona was fully aware Kaizer, & Chimpyiongo are the architects of Zambian pre, & post electoral violence intolerance & rigging.
      * Distract citizens from the EVERYDAY NEW SCANDAL issue that is blighting this poor nation.
      JONA CHAKOLWA AYENDE!!

  4. Good move no one should actually go to the stadiums so that these !doits get the message that the people are tired of corruption, Jonathan pompwe and his ministers can go on their own. Why call for day of national prayers when the people are hungry and your stup!d police are busy killing innocent people.

  5. PF will go ahead , u dont come we dont care, WHY should u use a national day of prayers to CAMPAIGN for 2021, just come out in the Open WHO DO U WANNA CAMPAIGN FOR? TIME FOR CAMPAIGN IS NOT READY YET , POLICE WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO BUNDLE U AND LOCK U UP IN JAIL, BOMA NI BOMA SELENIKO TUBOMBEKO BAMULALA UKWACHENAMA BAMAKHAKHA, AMALUKU BATI

    • Another joker this guy, he is talking of people being bundled by Police. You are busy mentioning police who are busy investigating themselves over a precious life, Gods life tragically taken away unnecessarily at UNZA. Say something but something else please. You risk becoming irrelevant in Zambia like Tayali

    • Like i always say people do not support pf out love, but through fear, most people in the markets, streets are so scared of pf thugs, am sure a log book for civil servants will be in monitor those present and absent.last year some tutemba owners were forced to close their shops to go and play/feast.

  6. iam so happy that many people have started seeing reality in this country that what others saw long time ago has brought this country to its knees. let all well meaning zambians shun the mocking of the almighty god.

  7. One really must have no shame to go and pray with these people who cant even offer condolences for the death of Vesper,but chose instead to politicise the whole event,they want to score political points over Versper’s death with no shame

  8. Prayers are not by force.
    SDA/UPND self righteousness is the very reason we reject UPND.

    We pray because we understand we are weak and need God.

    Those comments above remind me that great parable by our Lord Jesus.

    Two men(parties) went to pray….
    One party said….Lord we are not like those sinners….

    So,let the righteous stay away from the National Day of Prayers.

    • You should really worry about the consequences of mocking God with your so-called prayers. Isaiah 58, have you heard of that text?

  9. DONT BRING YOUR HATE FOR SDA IN YOUR POLITICS……… JEHOVAH WITNESS AND SDA NORMALLY KEEP A LOW PROFILE….. WHEN POLITICIANS QUARREL , CHRISTAINS PRAY FOR YOU AND YOU DONT ORDER THEM…. THE DAY OF PRAYER IS YOUR DAY NOT THE LORD’S DAY………………….
    HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ANY SDA PASTOR OR JEHOVAH WITNESS ELDER COMMENT ON PF OR UPND? NEVER MY FRIEND…………… WISDOM IS NO LONGER COMMON IN ZAMBIA. SDA TREAT ALL PEOPLE AS CANDIDATE OF HEAVEN WHETHER ONE IS PF OR UPND.
    LUNGU AND HH IS AWARE OF SDA ;S POSITION

  10. I do encourage people to pray, when the nation recognise God it is a good thing indeed God hears their cry and comes to heal their nation.
    Humanity has no power over the spiritual powers that exist , however prayers invite God in their situation if they pray in Jesus name, repentance is the most powerfull thing to bring healing in the nation , anyone who chooses to stay away is short sighted and blind

    • @ nshilimubemba
      Amen! Its called faith at work and many Zambians will turn up to seek God on that day. Ba UPND have forgotten and forsaken God, God doesnt need them but its them who need God in truth.

  11. By 2021 UPND voices will be completely useless for all people will know your ways of complaining on every aspect.your mouths are full of complaints such that sensible people will stop listening from you even when you will be speaking sense.Too much complaints bores the listener.

  12. Ba UPND, honestly you even deny God in your quest to test governance! But I have this message for you, in all you do and say, you always exhibiting the fruits of evil being envy, jealous, hate, self-centerdness, lying, cheating, gossiping, slandering, murdering etc these things dont please God and in the end you end up committing sins instead of seeking blessings.
    Infact its HH and UPND who have rejected God and yet they want Him to bless them, it doesnt happen like that. Remember, God cant be mocked…..Iwe HH, you need prayers to be loosed, walikakwa man! The suffering UPND has been singing about is as a result of its members failing to see good and seizing the opportunity all in the name of Satanism.

    • Your young brothers in lunga district luapula province are learning under trees mr holier than thou, find time to go and help set up a proper school with a good learning environment. Apa tapali nefyakukakwa tata, wembifi ikulu niwe ulya indalama shaba kote naba mukamfwilwa.

    • How long has this area existed? How many governments have we had. If Unip and MMD didn’t do it in 50 plus years how do you expect PF to do it overnight? Best thing for you to do is visit the area.

  13. Salvation is you alone. Forget this ministry of religious issue, this ministry will not save a single soul. It is a drain on national coffers. Central statistics, please advise how many souls have been saved ever since this moribund ministry came on board. What achievements has it brought and then you even bring about a day ati national day of prayers. Ati masebela bati

  14. What the opposition dont seem to realize is this
    2016 was an election year, remember it was August
    2017 was settling and planning year for PF
    2018 is the implementation and enforcement year of development
    2019 will be implementation consolidation and review of what was planned
    2020 will stabilization and mobilization
    2021 will be Sonta Epo Wabomba iwe. At this time, PF would have done so much that the opposition will be left with NOTHING to say other than the unsubstantiated boring corruption propaganda. What matters to the voters, what they can see, feel, experience and relate to.
    Am sure 50kg mealie meal will be around K55, fuel around K9, Dollar to Kwacha somewhere $1 to K8. UNZA will have new students fresh and independent.
    So who will win? Certainly not anyone from the…

    • Wishful thinking as usual. The trajectory suggests otherwise, you don’t even need to be analytical to see that we are in serious decline. For the avoidance of doubt, I am PF. Our chances very slim.

  15. These funny Zambian parties, they will pray together today, the following day, back to square one, total war. PF and UPND, the worst parties to have emerged on the Zambian landscape. Not sure why they are even mocking God by calling for these prayers. Even something as simple as dialogue, the two parties have lamentably failed. Just a childish game of finger pointing at one another.

  16. THE BIBLE SAYS LET US WORSHIP GOD IN TRUTH AND IN SPIRIT.WHERE IS THE TRUTH WHEN A FEW MONTHS, WEEK AND DAYS THEY HAVE MASSIVE LOOTING OF RESOURCES OF THE COUNTRY BY PHARISES.STOP MOCKING AND FOOLING GOD.A DAY OF NATIONAL PRAYERS IS TO PLAY PEOPLE ON THERE MINDS TO THINK CERTAIN CLIQUE WITHIN PF ARE CLOSER TO GOD OR BELIEVE IN GOD. WHERE ARE THE CHRISTIANS FOR ECL?BALIMPWA CZ ALL THEY DID THEY WERE FOOLING THEMSELVES.WARNING IN CAPITAL LETTERS U WILL REGRET AND GOD WILL EXPOSE U PRETENDERS.IAM NOT SAYING IAM HOLY BUT IAM A WORST SINNER.PS 51.WITH HIRED PASTORS.THE HOUSE OF PRAYERS WHERE IS IT NOW? PASTORS LIKE PUKUTA MWANZA, JOSHUA BANDA ETC THEYS ARE CON PASTORS.WE KNOW THEM.DO U EVEN FEEL GUILTY OF YOUR WRONG DOINGS SOME OF U PASTORS?THEY ARE ECL VUVUZELAS ESPECILLY THOSE WHO CALL…

  17. Maliya you should address that to the ruling party, as a party with the mandate in it’s hand they should be tolerant and show leadership. You know how evil and crooked ruling parties in Africa are. the onus is on PF, you saw Kenyatta in Kenya show leadership by bending down and finding ways to reconcile not our proud Lungu and his arrogant party. They will refuse and offer unimaginable demands that almost amount to buying off the opposition, since they want us to return to one party state.

  18. With due respect to Dr Mbulo abstinence
    from nation day of prayers this year.
    The reason advanced in this issue does not hold fairly.Who is responsible for Pf and Upnd not getting on together?In my understanding Upnd are impossible to get along with.They refuse to attend any goverment functions and if any of their members attend,He or she will be in serious trouble.How do you manage such egos?In other nations we see opposition and goverment attending functions side by side.And it is wonderful to observe.Belonging to different parties doesnt mean people should be enemies.
    According to the bible christians are to support with prayer the goverment of the day.Goverment has the responsibility to organise functions or do you want the goverment not to participate.
    Please try not to be…

    Please try not to be political in your decisions as a body of christ you are accountable before Jehovah God.

  20. There is no difference between religion and politics. Both involve lies and fanatical beliefs that generaly defy logic… Just like rock climbing.

    I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
