FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STATEMENT BY PF SOUTHERN PROVINCE INFORMATION AND
PUBLICITY SECRETARY – TRYMORE MWENDA
ON NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
The PF leadership in Southern Province is calling upon all
Zambians to turn out in numbers on Wednesday, 18th October,
2017 in the National Prayer Day, declared by His Excellency
President Edgar Lungu on October 18, 2015.
The Party is pleased that despite some people trying to derail
the event, the call for national prayers has received massive
support from all Christians in our entire province who are
believers in the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The Bible says, If my people, who are called by my name, will
humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their
wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive
their sin and will heal their land this is according to 2
The declaration by the President has continued to remind us
Zambians that the Head of State is a God fearing leader, who
wants not only the Church, but the entire citizenry to submit
themselves and surrender the nation before God.
What started as a remote call by President Lungu when he
declared October 18, as a day of Prayer, Fasting and
Reconciliation, has contributed to the growing commitment of
upholding christian values and preserving peace by citizens
through fear of the Lord.
As stated above, the Spirit of God has for many years prevailed
over this country as evidenced in the relative peace and
stability the country has enjoyed since independence from
Britain in 1964, when most of our neighbours were grappling
with internal conflicts.
We are all aware that the main goal behind this day is to call
upon the Lord to bring Love, unity, reconciliation, peace and
hope to the nation. We believe that this is the best chance
that Zambians have to put behind areas of differences and build
on areas of common interest for the greater good of the
We therefore encourage Zambians in all Southern Province
Districts to show commitment on that day and attend prayer
meetings in their respective areas.
