Canadian clergy praises President Edgar Lungu for declaring national day of prayers

General News Canadian clergy praises President Edgar Lungu for declaring national day of prayers

President Edgar Lungu joins in prayer and worship during the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance and Reconciliation at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe

A visiting clergy from Canada has commended President Edgar Lungu for setting aside 18th October as the Day for National Prayers and fasting.

And Monze Pastors’ Fellowship Chairperson Pastor Smart Fundi says all prayers and fasting would be in vain if there was no fear of God and a deliberate move to bring about true reconciliation in the country.

Delivering sermon at Evangel of Grace Church yesterday during the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance, and Reconciliation held under the theme, ” Facing the Future As A Reconciled, United, and Prosperous Nation Under God’s Guidance”, Dr Arnold Doobay Executive Director of MATE Federated Cooperative Limited (MATE/FCL) in Canada says it was essential for the country to pray to God to cure all the afflictions it was faced with.

He said the decision by President Lungu to set a day solely for prayers deserve commendation as this would help to bring the country in the right path with GOD heal whatever problems facing the Nation.

Dr Doobay also urged the church to put aside interdenominational barriers and come together as they all worship the same God who has one body.

He implored all the churches in the country to unite and rise to the occasion to pray unceasingly for the country’s leaders, peace, prosperity and unity.

And Pastor Fundi pointed out that it was in vain to claim Zambia as a Christian Nation, to pray and fast if and when Christ is not the standard in all what is done and said.

He said in as much as the country was praying for reconciliation but if there was no deliberate move to bring about genuine reconciliation then all prayers are in vain.

And District Commissioner Mr Cyprian Hamanyanga says the country needs God for guidance on its journey to prosperity and sustained peace.

He appealed to the clergy in Monze to continue giving spiritual need to leaders in the country so that they could fulfill their duties.

Meanwhile, the National Day of Prayer and Fasting was flouted in Monze as businesses went on operating normally despite the directive by the local authority for all businesses to close for the day.

  1. WENYE.DOES THIS CLERGY KNOW HOW CRUEL AND PHARISM THESE GUYS ARE? LET ME NOT JUDGE THEM BUT GOD WILL PUNISH THEM

  2. Fasting to steal more, pompwe kabalala uyu, even this clergy man was just opening his mouth with out knowing what this convicted thief is capable of.

  3. I support President Lungu’s decision to set aside a day for national prayers.

    I also understand the strong opposition to his decision in the context that not all of a leader’s decisions can be popular.

    It was the right decision nonetheless.

    • He should have picked the last Sunday of October, rather than stop productivity for an entire nation. Pathetic Failures (PF)

    • And your prayers have been answered, lucky you! I hope you fly with him, get some earnings from the trees and live a decent life in comparison to a lot of Zambians. I also hope you pray some more so that all Zambians will live like you.

  4. This Canadian clergy does not know the kind of people he is praising. Him is from one of the most developed countries in the world. So he can be forgiven. We are the ones feeling the pinch of electing this cruel government. What a terrible mistake we made by removing the caring MMD government(but not that of Rupiah)
