THE ZANU PF Women’s League and the Zimbabwe Indigenous Interdenominational Council of Churches, ZIICC, has urged all Zimbabweans to participate in the three days of Prayer and Fasting for Zimbabwe as articulated by the First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa.
In a statement, National Secretary for Women Affairs Cde Mabel Chinomona called all women and Zimbabweans, in general, to participate in the prayer from the comfort of their homes.
“The Women’s League calls upon all the women of Zimbabwe in particular, and all Zimbabweans in general, to participate in these important days of Prayer and Fasting from our homes.
“The call comes at a time when our country and the rest of the world is going through its darkest moment in our lifetime, where the second wave of the coronavirus has ruthlessly shaken the entire human race and our beloved country Zimbabwe has not been spared,’ she said.
ZIICC Patron, Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi, said the Covid-19 has brought so much pain and suffering among Zimbabweans and it is time for all to come together and pray for the nation.
“We need to set aside our differences, unite and pray for our nation. As a church we would like to remind our members to abide by the World Health Organisation protocols, wear masks, practise social distance, regular washing of hands and avoid gatherings,” he said in a statement.
Cde Chinomona said it is imperative that we seek divine intervention and cry for God’s grace and mercy and for divine intervention in these trying times in our land in the wake of the spike in Covid-19 cases and deaths.
“Recognising that Zimbabwe is a Christian nation and acknowledging the supremacy of God, as a praying nation we take heed to the Word of God believing that as He promised us in the Holy Bible, the Lord God watches over His word to perform it, and it will never return to Him void.
“As such, the ZANU PF Women’s League is of the strong conviction that as women in particular and Zimbabweans from all walks of life, in general, it is now imperative that we seek divine intervention and cry for God’s grace and mercy and for divine intervention in these trying times in our land in the wake of the spike in Covid-19 cases and deaths.
“As the Bible leads clearly states in 2 Chronicles 7:13-15 which instructs us that “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place,” she explained.
She asked the nation to join the Mother of our Nation, Her Excellency Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa from 21st -23rd January 2021 in fervent prayer, fasting and crying unto God for Zimbabwe to be healed from the ills of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
