President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has called
for constant prayers to ensure peace during the forthcoming elections.
Mutharika made the remarks Thursday during the Presidential Prayer Breakfast hosted by the Pentecostal Revival Crusade Ministries at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.
“I believe in prayer and peace which is evident in the way I treat those who regard me as their
enemy, those who rebel against me, seek and pray for my destruction,” said Mutharika.
Mutharika said that he is not a vengeful person and that his main focus is on the
development of the country.
“I believe in the power of reconciliation. I have no grudges against anyone, only the law and
God can judge them,” he said.
Mutharika called on the nation to embrace love and peace in the run up to the elections and beyond the polls.
Apostle Dr Madalitso Mbewe said presidential prayers have been in existence
since 1999 with the aim to bring unity among electoral contestants and pray for peace.
“The presidential prayer breakfast is founded on four pillars namely love, forgiveness,
reconciliation and peace,” said Mbewe.
