Malawi to hold prayers thanking God for rains

135

Malawi will in three months’ time hold ‘Thanksgiving prayers’ aimed at praising God for giving the country good rains in the current growing season.

The intention of having the prayers was disclosed by the country’s head of state Peter Mutharika at Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe during Malawi Defence Force interreligious prayers.

“God has answered our prayers when we asked him to give us good rains this growing season and possibly saying thank you to Him can be great,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika says Malawians need to than God for good rains.

In November, Malawi held prayers asking God for good rains in this growing season.

The November prayers came after unreliable rains and floods in the previous two rainy seasons led to food shortage in the country.

The food crisis that Malawi experienced due to unfavourable rainfall in the 2015/2016 growing season left about 6.8 million facing hunger.

In April last year Mutharika declared Malawi a State of Disaster a development that saw many donors come in with various donations like food and money.

Various religions also hold prayers to thank God for rains.

For Example, Muslims in Nkhotakota district hold the prayers at Nkhandwe Mosque.

  3. Ganizo labwino kwambiri koma pempho kwa anyamata a MBC chonde otsutsa akazapita kumapemphero osatawisa camera. Tonse ndife aMalawi and preachers who are handclappers should be sidelined

  4. Tikuyeneradi kuyamika yahwe chaka chino kuli mmera wabwino,bola tikakolor tisamale osangogulisa,osaiwala kupereka masika kwa yahwe kt apitilize kutipasa mvulayi,tipepese kwa anzathu ena omwe akuvutika ndi madzi osefukir chifukwa chakuchuluka kwa mvula

  5. That is the way to go. Peace & favour be upon the nation of malawi. 2chronicles7v14
    – your prayer matters as a christian.God calls us “my people”.

  6. Koma pasakakhale azipani chifukwa azikakama zandale kusiya kuthokoza mulungu pa mvula imene watipatsa, mudalekelanji kupanga mapemphero munja ndalama zinabedwa, ndalama zimene mukufuna kupangira mapephero pelekani kwa anthu akumudzi omwe panopa ena akugona ndi njala kusowa chakudya komanso mvula ndi anthu aku mudzi osati aku town

  7. Kikikikikikik just like everywhere in Africa, these so called prayers will be conducted by men of ” Gold,” a people that do not offer hope for the poor.Praise singers for politicians,a people that are puppets of the party in power.Poor farmers hoodwinked into believing that these are prayers to God when in fact they are celebrations of those in power on how they will steal from the poor farmers of the impending harvest.

  8. Ku thokoza mulungu siku pemphela kokha tsiku lina mulungu azaku sekani……kadzaleni mitengo uko mulungu asangalala azaku dalitsaniso chaka chiku bwelachi….

  9. The prayers must be held alongside massive planting of trees countrywide. Not malaigna , not bluegum, not any other exotic, but natural trees. Once we bring back nature, God will bless us more and evermore forever.

  10. Who’s going to lead the prayers….. Let God alone. He’s not giving us the rains because of our rotten prayers. Such a corrupt nation like ours, still hiding behind God’s name. Shame on us.

    • Not that we should stop praying but we have to be individually praying for ourselves. Ali God is God and we are not supposed to play with him as we are doing with Google apps or anything else. Malawi is rotten.

  11. I didn’t expect this to happen. This is very good. We should not always Beg without Thank You Lord! This is great, may God bless you. Amen!

  12. Nde Malawi phuma, tikangopeza ka surplus basi okagulitsa Ku Zimbabwe, Kapena kukagawa Ku Haiti. Let’s keep stock at least for 2 yrs, kumakagawa bwino. However, prayers r needed, all the time!

  13. Hopefully a nice move bt why holding prayers thanking only 4 gd things ? prayers ought 2 be held even when things aren’t gd . God I should great , Hamps

    • True Man,tiyike Lamulo,athu Okhalitsa Mu Ndale From Boma La One Pate Up Now,mumangolamulira Nawo Chipani Chilichose Chowina,azolowera Ngati Mnyumba Mwawo,so Pakhale Force Retirement,

    • Nobodies prayers have ever been answered before so why should you worry about an answer to these?

  16. Just remember, God’s name is the name above all names, the Lord JESUS CHRIST !!! Believe on Him and receive eternal life and get saved from everlasting damnation!

    And thanks for the rains in Malawi too.

  17. Aliyense aziyamika mulungu pazonse akutichitila sizililaso kuti ampingo kapena ndani aliyese ndiudindo wake kuyamika mulungu pazonse amatichitila amen.

  18. Mulungu amatikonda for sure koma andale ndi amene amabweretsa mkwiyo wa Mulungu,ndikadakonda kuti kumapemphereko kusakakhale wandale aliyese.tikapempheso Mulungu kuti omwe akuba ndalama za boma awalenge. Mawa lino mukumva munthu kukwatira ndi amayi ake ndi ufulu wake,legalisation of abortion apa tikumva kuti chambaso chiloledwe.dont allow any politician to attend those prayers otherwise mukangotayako nthawai.mapemphero omwewo wina akalandira allowance.malawi.com

    • Since gods exist only in the minds of the mentally ill how did they have anything to do with the rain?
      If democracies need gods do they become theocracies?

  19. The politicians must pray for themselves and repent to what they are doing to the suffering Malawians as they don’t bother about the rain and God. The rain is for the poor, at least they can have maungu on the table.

    • And mmundamu zikayenda politician apita pa podium akazichemerere kuti wathesa njala. U r rit ,Mulungu waganizila ovutikafe

  20. yes nkhani yabwino koma tisakadane ndi ulaliki chifukwa ndakumbukira nthawi ya Bingu pamau awa” munthu amene samva zonena za ena pachitumbuka timamuti ali chindere” pamenepa Big man anakwiya zedi

  21. yes nkhani yabwino koma tisakadane ndi ulaliki chifukwa ndakumbukira nthawi ya Bingu pamau awa” munthu amene samva zonena za ena pachitumbuka timamuti ali chindere” pamenepa Big man anakwiya zedi

    • So if God himself brought rain and there were floods and homeless people in differnt areas. What else can you say to God rather than saying thank you Lord?? Mr man don’t insult God pliz. The bible said we should thank him in good or bad times.

    • Can’t god bring rains tht dont hurt other people? I mean he’s god.. Y can’t our crops get rain n he spares our houses? Just asking….. He luvs us….. Y do tht? Just makes me sad……

    • Don’t be sad when God do something. Even if he takes your son, mom, dad or sister away. Just cry and say amen, but don’t blame him for taking them. He is God and he does what he like. Even today he can do everything.

    • If you ask your parents to give you a car and they do buy you a car. Later the car is involved in a car accident and you sustain some injuries or some lives are lost, do you say I will not thank my parents for the care, because it was involved in an accident?

    • God gave life to ur enemies too,and soon u will be asking,why does he not kill my enemy before he or she destroys me?,,forgeting thar u urself are an enemy to somebody else,and if ur enemy was to have their prayers answered u too will be dead,now u see?God is wise…and do souls find their way to heaven?,its through Jesus,and we have to die to get there,when?..well,can u give an answer to when we have to die?…brother,what u have done is try to think likeGod and now see how confused you have ended?,why?…coz its sin to try to do that…many people think God can reason like man does,but the bible says,man’s best wisdom is still foolishness in God’s eyes,instead u should be askin for more wisdom to discern his words,gain and understand His ways and will,lastly,its easier to obey God…that to fight and wrestle withHim…am not callin u a sinner,God let u post that text so one will get answers,my advise, read the bible often…test the words,if they are all true…blessed morning

  22. Good one, Lets say thanks to the CEO of the universe!!! AMUNA BAMBO, the one who holds the whole world in His hand

  23. Kumeneko ndiko kuganiza Nthawi zina tiziyamika zinthu zikamachita bwino osati mulungu azifunika panthawi ya Mavuto okhaokha ai
