Gertrude Mutharika says women should be at the forefront in praying.

Malawi’s first lady said a woman’s prayer is powerful.

“When women pray, something big happens. God answers all our prayers. My hope is that as we come together in prayers for our country and understand the nearness of God – the way He desires to draw people close to Himself and delights in our earnest efforts to spread His message of love and grace with as many people as possible,” she said.

Mutharika also urged the women gathered to recognise their individual responsibilities of ensuring that personal lives and choices align to the values in the societies.

The Ladies Fellowship Dinner was under the theme “Women of Excellence”.
