Malawians Should Pray like During 2020 Elections - EAM
The Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) has asked Malawians to continue praying seriously for the nation and leaders as they did during the court-sanctioned elections.
The body's chairperson in Thyolo District, Bishop Richard Muronya says now that the country is rocked with numerous challenges, the citizenry should not sit back, but continue praying for the leaders including President Lazarus Chakwera.
Bishop Muronya made the call on Saturday at the (EAM) sanctioned Inter-denomination Joint Prayers.
"During the period of campaign for general elections, it is always on our heart in praying that God should give us leaders that can transform our nation, but, the experience has been that we always pray when we want a leader and after that w e leave everything to himself. And then we begin to complain why things are not happening the way we want, but we forget that we have left something that is very important we must continue praying," he said.
On his part, Thyolo District Interfaith Alliance Chairperson, Pastor Lloyd Somera also said "the devil is happy that Malawians are not praying for wisdom to end the current challenges, but complaining and jealous for each other.”
Themed: 'God heal our land' prayers focused on continued stability and peace, success in fighting corruption, availability of forex, adequate rainfall, elimination of suicidal spirits, Covid-19 and Cholera among the petitions.
The EAM Prayers which were being held in churches, workplaces and homes from 15 November, ended on 3 December 2022.
