Word of Life band leading praise songs at White City Stadium
The day was hot but streams of people braved the heat and gathered at White City Stadium to pray for our Nation Zimbabwe. There were probably a total of 3 000 people who attended. Although it was hot, the atmosphere was great. Praise and worship was led by the band from Word of Life Church. They did a fantastic job of singing songs that most people knew. Vibrant song and dance got everyone in the spirit of unity. It was awesome.
The presence of God was felt and the prayer was a great beginning step for the Church to lead the way in shaping Zimbabwe. Kenneth Chirimuta opened in prayer. Mrs Zulu who is part of the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops Conference did an incredible job. She read from Genesis 1 and spoke about creation and man in creation v26. We are meant to take our stand in creation and dominate. The speeches went well: Overseer Nhira’s spoke on unity, being relevant as Christians and feeding ourselves as a Nation. The Prayer was led by various church leaders on different aspects pertaining to Zimbabwe on being passionate for God, passionate for each other and passionate about our nation. Mbonisi Malaba was very good as he shared the heart, science and technology of Foundations for Farming.
Everyone ended up on their knees at White City Stadium to pray for Zimbabwe. What a moving moment!
Comments from a few people:
1. Interesting to see Catholics and Pentecostals together.
2. It was brilliant, especially the unity – everyone presenting a unified front and we got a sense of the church on mission and the church taking its place in leading the nation.
3. Seeing about 200 Pastors from different churches on the podium was wonderful.
4. The meeting is but the beginning of Churches working together. The Pastors were very encouraged.
Prayer transforms a nation….
