Ephraim prays for marital bliss

CHOMBAS MUSIKA, Lusaka
“LORD, we pray and ask you to restore marriages and help us to flee from adulterous behaviour as couples so that we may walk in righteousness and holiness,” gospel artiste Ephraim Mutalange posted on his Facebook page.
This is the prayer of the Tetinjikale Ukwabula Imwe singer in the wake of increasing divorce cases, with the capital Lusaka recording over 8, 160 divorces annually.
Ephraim, the Son of Africa, is also disturbed by recent reports of women allegedly killing their husbands during domestic disputes.
Only early this month, a woman of Lusaka allegedly hit the husband with a blunt instrument and drove over him with a car after they differed over the custody of their children.
Barely a week after this incident, musician Francis Zimba, popularly known by his moniker Frankiss, was reportedly stabbed to death by his girlfriend following a dispute.
Empraim believes the spirit of divorce and couples killing each other could be conquered through prayer.
“Let us restore our dignity and pray for the spirit of killing spouses to die in Jesus name. Lord, I know you are faithful and that your word is true,” the Tetintwishike singer says.
Ephraim, a husband and father, says he is aware of the negative effects that divorce has on children so he prays to God to intervene in the matter.
“Come down Lord and manifest your power in our nation Zambia. Fight for our families and kids Lord,” he says.
With adultery being one of the Biblically permitted grounds on which a person can seek divorce, Ephraim is asking God to help couples to flee from extramarital affairs.
“Lord we pray and ask you to restore marriages and help us to flee from adulterous behaviour as couples so that we may walk in righteousness and holiness. Zambia needs to pray,” Ephraim adds.
He also urges husbands to love the Lord if they want their marriages to be better.
“Your [husbands] present status of your marriage is a reflection of your relationship with your God,” he says.
The Zambia Association of Musicians recently called on artistes to use their talent to speak against social ills such as divorce and spouse battering.
