Clergy to hold national prayers for 2021 general elections

Feature Politics Clergy to hold national prayers for 2021 general elections

The Lusaka Ministers’ Fellowship in association with the Pastors Fellowships from all 10 provinces have flagged off the national prayer initiative for the 2021 general elections.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka, Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Permanent Secretary, Howard Sikwela commended the initiative saying it has been long overdue for the church to take a lead in national matters.

Reverend Sikwela noted that it was imperative for the country to host peaceful electoral processes from the campaigns, announcement of results, and beyond the elections.

He urged the National Minister’s fellowship to continue with such kind of activities, saying that it is the only way the country can actualize the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation.

The Permanent Secretary urged all Zambians to participate in the programme because the initiative is aimed at upholding the peace in the country even after the general elections in August, 2021.

“I want to state that the Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs fully supports this kind of initiative. When the church decides to pray for a nation, it is only in order for all well-meaning Zambians and churches to support such initiatives,” Reverend Sikwela indicated.

And Lusaka Ministers Fellowship Chairman Christopher Kabunda explained that the church is aware of the positive and negative potential that elections can bring in the country, hence the need to host prayers to bless the campaign landscape.

Bishop Kabunda disclosed that the prayers will be hosted on May 8, 2021 under the theme: proclaiming peaceful, issue based political campaigns to provide responsible leadership for the next five years of Zambia.

The Bishop explained that the National Ministers fellowship was confident that going forward, the country shall hold peaceful electoral processes, perceiving that Jesus being the prince of peace will saturate the hearts of all citizens to value peace and respect for one another.

“This campaign period will establish a foundation upon which the next government shall stand for the next five years. Our sincere prayer is that this foundation shall not be stained with blood, corruption, insults, witchcraft of failure to honor God’s image,” Bishop Kabunda stated.

He added that beyond May 8, 2021, the Ministers fellowship will meet on July 31, 2021, October 18, 2021 for thanks giving and also on December 29, 2021 to celebrate entry into the 30th year of the national priesthood of the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation.

Meanwhile, National Ministers Fellowship Organizing Chairman Canon Sihubwa explained the objective of the Fellowship was to bring the church and political players together.

Reverend Sihubwa further indicated that the fellowship intends to proclaim blessings on the campaign terrain as each political party’s player appeals to people for a chance to serve the nation.

“As a Christian nation, anything that falls below the standard of true godliness is not to be tolerated,” Reverend Sihubwa noted.

He added that the prayers will also affirm the rulership of Christ over Zambia and commit to upholding dignity for every human being.

  1. please address the problem of pedophillia in the country. I would love to be the first to expose one wicked Zambian man in Lusaka who has sexually abused 100’s of minors. He is married and has two grown up coloured daughters the 3rd child some years back. The man has defiled most of the young girls that has crossed his path, from kids that sell sweet potatos, grilled maize cobs, roasted groundnuts, mushrooms along Zambian major highways to small school girls in the compounds, even his minor female cousins, older cousins daughters, their freinds and friends friends, his late brothers and sisters grandchildren, male cousins wives , married and single women and street workers. If a female relative visits the family he wakes up at night when everyone is…

  5. Waste of time. Why don’t they pray that the debt disappears into thin air.

    These national prayers are just a disguise.

  6. We will see a very devote looking Lungu, with his hands spread into the air, while he is thinking how he can steal even more from the Zambian people. Ten commandments? What is that?

  7. And the same satanlc political party upnd wont attend. How can freemas0ns wish to rule a Christian nation?

  8. Prayers without Action are Futile. The Church 3 Mother Bodies know the Cause of violent,rigged and disputed Elections. The Church should mediate talks between the Ruling Party and Opposition Parties. Already the New Voters Roll is compromised and Elections are not being conducted in accordance with SADC and AU Election Guidelines. The Church should step in and ensure the Election Guidelines are followed. ECL’s Eligibility could be another source of conflict. The Church should insist on Concourt hearing and determining the Petitions Objectively and Professionally. Churches should stress to the Parties the importance of the Elections being declared free and fair. Rigged,violent and disputed Elections will lead to an illegitimate Govt. Illegitimacy has dire consequences on the Economy…

  9. Here we go the hypocrite talks about Christian nation. Christianity is just a disguise, but the reality is lungu and his minions including KZ the whore are crooks and thieves.

    I wonder why KZ has never been brought to books due to his many criminal activities, is it because he offers a blow job to his ex boss

  10. That is the best thing to do in a Christian nation anything that is against prayer is not good for anyone, confusion doesn’t come from God, forces of darkness like where there are no prayers of course evil is there always but in times like elections demons become very active as they want blood through killing people.
    The devil is the beneficiary of all blood shed so we have to stop all evil as it causes pain to everyone just as war does we don’t have to give room to any form of violence .

  11. SOME ARE NOT HYPOCRITES LIKE THE BORN AGAIN
    RELIGION IS A PERSONAL THING
    NOT THE CASH COWS FOR SOME AS IT IS BEING USED

  12. KASIZER ZULU IS JUST A STUP1D BLOGGER HE HAS NOTHING TO OFFER AND IS A SELF OPINIONATED LEECH JUST SUCKING FAVOURS FROM THOSE AROUND HIM
    REMEMBER HE DID A TRADE MARK ON HIS NAME ?? WHERE IT NOW
    DONT LISTEN TO THIS CHAP HES PAID TO BLOG HERE WHICH HE IS HOPELESS AT AS HE THINKS HIS CONSTANT ABUSE OF UPND WILL GAIN VOTES FOR THE PATRI0TIC F00LS THAT WONT HAPPEN !!

  14. Black scouser you are always angry. Those whltes there must be giving you a hard time wiping their old people backside. Listen, it is not us who told you to leave Zambia. You went alone chlcolour charweeso

  15. When u see a Vote Thief stealing Elections do u stop the vote thieving or u pray for the Thief to stop stealing the Vote? What is causing violent, rigged and disputed Elections is known. ECL is refilling the Republican Constitution to retain Power. The illegal and unconstitutional Third Term Bid must be stopped. The Church should urge the Ruling Party to respect the Constitution, Rule of Law,Good Governance and Human Rights. Stealing Elections should be condemned by the Church.

  16. Zambia pastors for hire given a contract to simulate prayers for 2021 general elections and receive feedback from virtual heaven that a certain imbushi has been annoited ?

  17. Zambian pastors hired to simulate prayers for 2021 general elections and have been tasked to give feedback of virtual heavens choice.
    Messiah bwelanso pa chalo ukwapule nafuti…

  18. Yes prayers are the custodians of peace, peace is the manager of development where there is chaos there could be no investment coming in , every business needs peace violence is the daughter Satan.
    As Zambians let’s promote what works for the people of Zambia.
