INDEPENDENT Churches of Zambia (ICOZ) chairperson David Masupa has commended President Lungu for declaring October 18 as a day of national prayer and fasting.
Bishop Masupa said the announcement is in line with the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation.
He said the Bible clearly states if a nation seeks the face of God through prayer, God will forgive its sins and hea its land.
“In Chronicles 7:14, the Bible is clear and this is the reason why we should all support the call for every Zambian to go back to the altar and seek the face of God,” he said.
Bishop Masupa said the Bible clearly states that “blessed are the peace-makers for they shall be called the children of God.”
“As a church and a country, we should change our attitude and ensure that we promote peace, unity and love,” the bishop said.
He further commended the President for his continued promotion of peace and unity in the country.
Commenting on yesterday’s presidential speech in Parliament, Bishop Masupa said all well-meaning Zambian’s should appreciate the call for unity and peace.
He said in all his speech, the President emphasised the need for all Zambians to pray and unite.
And PF secretary general Davis Chama said as a political party, the PF will not condemn the absence of political parties but instead, pray for them for God’s deliverance.
“The President’s message is clear, it is that of love, peace, unity and reconciliation, which every Zambian should embrace,” Mr Chama said.
