Farai Dziva|Courageous Church leader Bishop Ancelimo Magaya has described Emmerson Mnangagwa’s National Day of Prayer as meaningless in the spiritual realm.

Bishop Magaya challenged Mnangagwa to repent before calling for a fast.

See full statement below :
‘Bring no more vein oblations, incense are an abomination to me, the new moon and Sabbath, the calling of assemblies, (be they presidential), I cannot, away with them! It is an iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moon and appointed feast, my soul hates. They are trouble unto me. I am weary to bear them. And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you. When you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood’, (Isaiah 1:13-15).

Verse 15 in particular, captures what God promises to do on the 15th of June.

The just called for presidential national day of prayer is a development that has happened not only at a time when the President and his aides have just promised another spate of violence, persecution, arbitrary arrests and abductions through the guise of the ‘Long arm of the Law’, but also at a time when they have just brutally tortured the three young women for their involvement in the flash demonstration, arrested Honourable Biti and company for requesting the police to facilitate their entry into their party headquarters, but also at a time when many fingers are pointing to the first family in relation to corruption allegations surrounding the supply of COVID response equipment.

It is common knowledge that this second republic has blood in their hands.

They killed on the 1st of August 2018, they killed on October 10 2018, they killed from January 14-16 2019 and applied law selectively wherein they arrested those that looted but those that raped and killed still roam the streets.

They have just killed a man in Bulawayo during this COVID-19.

They then call for a national day of prayer. God will not hear. The event will be loathsome before him.

The first thing to do Mr President is to openly repent of your sins: murder, corruption, deceit etc. The scripture that you quoted places a condition of leaving your wicked ways.

I charge that you do so sincerely, submit to the authority of the church for guidance and counsel. Without that, the 15th of June national day of prayer is a nullity before God and the church.

For the church and the citizenry, let us push persistently through labor pains, the birthing of a new Zimbabwe.

God save Zimbabwe.

Emmerson Mnangagwa
