Zimbabwe: Anglican Church appeals for world day of prayer

 The Anglican Church in Zimbabwe has requested Christians of every denomination around the world to focus their prayers this Sunday on the critical situation in the southern African nation. Making the call, Rev. Bob Stumbles, Chancellor of the Anglican Diocese of Harare, described Zimbabwe as "a nation in dire distress and teetering on the brink of human disaster. It needs to be rescued from violence, the concealing and juggling of election results, deceit, oppression and corruption, to bring about righteousness, joy, peace, compassion, honesty, justice, democracy and freedom from fear and want, the chancellor said. "Let the cry for help touch your heart and mind. Let it move you to do what you can immediately to ensure this Day of Prayer takes place in your country and neighbourhood. "May a continual, strong stream of prayer and supplication flow up to the Lord on behalf of all the people on this Day of Prayer, exhorting His divine intervention throughout the nation. Rev Stumbles urged all Zimbabweans not to give up hope, and offered them the support of the Word of God: "Who so putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25); "Stand fast, and do not let yourselves be caught again in the yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1); "Make no mistake, you cannot cheat God." (Galatians 6:7) "Do not be overcome by evil but overcame evil with good" (Romans 12:21). Source: CISA
