President Lungu urges the Church to pray for peace

Headlines President Lungu urges the Church to pray for peace

President Edgar Lungu has urged the clergy in the country to convert politicians who are not yet believers ahead of this year’s campaigns.

President Lungu observes that time will come when most politicians will start frequenting churches to seek for votes an opportunity for the church he said to win souls for Christ.

“ It is the nature of the church to embrace everyone who wants to congregate with them and that this gives chance to the clergy to preach the Gospel to a lot of people, “ he said.

Speaking when he attended Mass at Christ the King Anglican church in Mansa, President Lungu indicates that the Church should continue to pray for Peace and Unity in the Country.

The Republican President notes that it is the duty of the church to ensure that they preach peace to all the politicians in the country.

He points out that the church should always be able to offer guidance especially to the politicians in the country so that peace can continue to rein.

And Anglican Diocese of Luapula Bishop Robert Mumbi says the country will continue to enjoy peace even as it goes to the polls.

Bishop Mumbi explains that the Church will always be praying for the peace of the Nation so that the devil is not given chance to bring disunity during and after elections.

He points out that is It possible for all politicians in the country to remain united even in the midst of elections.

Advising politicians not be allowed to divide the Nation, the clergyman has since encouraged the Republican President to continue depending on God as he leads the Nation.

The Republican President is in Luapula Province to officially open the Patriotic Front conference were new Provincial leaders will be elected.

  1. MR PRESIDENT LOOK CLOSER TO HOME AND SEE WHO REALLY IS DOING NOTHING TO FOSTER PEACE AND
    WHO THREATENS PEOPLE AND HAS NO RESPECT F0R WOMENS RIGHTS BY HIS INSULTING BEHAVIOUR

  2. Mr president this is a timely message. Your wisdom is needed in Zambia beyond 2021 . Our peace is in danger by upnd cadres who are desperate to get power even at the cost of human life..we saw it happen when hh appeared before police. 2 innocent lives taken whilst he continues to enjoy life in new kasama. A sane person would have volunteered to take care of the deceaseds children and spouses but not evil hh.

  3. Hypocrites!…they’re everyday talking about God but so evil in their deeds. One day someone will see a hand writing on the wall that’s when they will realise they’ve been using the name of God in vein.

  4. The president is the one who has a responsibility to make sure political violence stops. We can’t be praying even about things that God has given us power to deal with. The Bible says as much as it depends on you live at peace with all men. President Lungu is on record having refused to dialogue. P

  5. SINCE WHEN DID THE CHURCH STOP PREACHING PEACE THAT IT NEEDED TO BE REMINDED BY POLITICIANS TO DO SO? THE CHURCH SHOULD JUST COME OUT WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOR AND TELL THOSE POLITICIANS WHO ARE VIOLENT, CORRUPT AND BENT ON DRAGGING THE CHURCH INTO POLITICS USING MONEY TO STOP DOING SO. LET PEOPLE JOIN POLITICS AFTER BEING LURED BY THE SOUNDNESS AND CLARITY OF YOUR IDEOLOGY. NOT MONEY OR SORCERY!!

  6. I cannot withstand our African mentality way of thinking. They are the reasons why I’m still poor. Here is a president asking people to pray for PEACE rather than fixing our political system and especially our economy. Dammit man, I’m pissed at these puppet leaders. Screw em if you can.

  7. The Church is now like “the government”. We have forgotten who the church really is: those cadres you are arming to the teeth and their hitherto hapless victims. Both will be violent as the attackers charge and the victims defend themselves with what they have. Start steering the ship away from poverty, opportunism, and petty political posturing (aka dishing out cash needlessly and putting peoples’ lives at risk).

  8. We should not fall into the dirty political trap of UPND, HH just wants to spread destruction across the country.

  9. The Church and the people always pray for Peace and Unity. But Hichilema and his party cadres don’t respect the Church values. HH is evil!!!

  10. Even if we warned UPND a thousand times to maintain the peace in the country, they will not listen and continue spreading violence across Zambia.

  11. To vote UPND out is the only option if we love our country. HH is a criminal and dangerous for Zambians.

  12. HH’s media houses started spreading series of lies against the PF and calling it a corrupt government. Fake stories and fake videos have been circulated on social media. We demand the Cybercrime Bill should be passed in Parliament, immediately. So that this will stop.

  13. We request President Lungu to take again against UPND leader HH, we demand investigation over Hichilema’s evil game plan. Innocent people should not fall into UPND’s fake propaganda.

  14. We should not fall into Lungus trap. Preaching peace in the morning. Unleashing violence in the afternoon.

  15. Even if the church preached peace a thousand times to the PF cadres they still won’t listen as they are a violent party.

  16. That is why the PF are so keen to pass the cyber crimes bill in parliament as soon as possible so that they can stop messages of peace from spreading through social media.

  17. UPND FAULT UPND FAULT IS THAT ALL PEOPLE CAN SAY ABOUT AN OPPOSITION PARTY PASSING ON THE BLAME
    GET RID OF THIS PARTY BAN IT DO WHAT YOU WANT THINGS WONT CHANGE
    LIKE UNIP THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE MESS WE ARE IN
    SO WITHOUT ALL OPPOSITION PARTIES WE WILL STILL BE HERE TRYING TO MAKE ZAMBIA GREAT AGAIN
