Headline Matters with Chambwa: Pray

TO start with, no one wants to read a profane essay today, Sunday, October 18, 2020. It’s the day of national prayer and, I hear, reconciliation. People are in beseeching disposition and being verbose and radical on this platform will just lead them into iniquity.

So, let me just be a little theological and we call it a day. Aren’t we a Christian nation? Life has been, and it is and will continue to be, tough for everybody. But worse for the weak! There are reasons for this societal polarity.

Proverbs 29 verse 4 says a just king gives stability to his nation, but one who demands bribes destroys it. 2 Timothy 3 verse 1 -2 says “this know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy…” Pray and get some divine sense from these verses.

Since you are probably at home, today and tomorrow, for this ‘hallowed’ leave, don’t spend time yelling at your domestic workers. Pray and read the Bible! Colossians 4 verse 1, can be the starting point. Then you can go to 1 John 4 verse 7, John 15 verse 13. But I’m not a man of the collar to cite so many biblical literatures for you, my esteemed readers. I’m a mere optimistic and pessimistic journalist from the bushes of Katuba.

I’m no mystical being; I’m affected by human infirmities. So, I pray that God touches us all and assures us of healthy lives. May He bring neither pestilence nor warfare upon our land, Zambia. May He respond to each one’s divine requests. Amen!

You see, all Headline Matters are written by a supplicatory Chambwa. But we have to pray and work. No wonder such decayed topics like Bill 10 and the rest. It’s merely matters of work! Anyway, let me not say much that will lead YOU into sin, after praying.

For confined National Democratic Congress (NDC) president Chishimba Kambwili, and his captors, say a befitting prayer, for both. This is not time to play, but PRAY! But let’s not only pray and reconcile today; better to do so throughout our life cycle. Once you have read the last word/name of this write-up, don’t insult me but PRAY.
