PSP CALLS ON PASTORS, NATION JOIN HANDS IN PRAYER

Pastors have been urged to join hands with the nation and pray against social ills, upcoming elections, economic stability, peace and stability.

Permanent Secretary to the President, Mr Carter Morupisi cited alcohol and drug abuse among factors that contributed to wayward behavior in schools and appealed to the nation to make prayer a tradition.

Addressing Ministers Fraternal in Palapye recently, Mr Morupisi said the nation pinned its hopes on children to take it forward which challenged parents to raise them well.

He talked against people who committed suicide, rape and murder as doing so was going against the creator.

‘’It is my considered view that the impact of the church must grow exponentially and be felt on a national scale.

I therefore urge the entire membership and the leadership of various churches to continue to pray for the success of our inclusive national economic transformation initiatives, unity, peace and stability that we so much cherish in this country,” he said.

Mr Morupisi encouraged churches to uphold the 2016 National Vision pillars of a Compassionate, Just and Caring Nation, Secure and Safe Nation and a United and Proud Nation.

He said for the nation to remain united and proud, it was important that the church continued being morally tolerant.

Mr Morupisi said Botswana would continue to be a better nation if Christians made the right choices considering that they were in the majority.

He said that could be achieved if everyone used the Ten Commandments as a guide.

Mr Morupisi said social ills were the result of failure to follow the Bible and also greed.

“Everyone has a role to play and live according to God’s will, do not ever replace God with anything else,” he said.

Palapye Ministers Fraternal chairperson, Rev. Jonah Sibanda said society was faced with many hardships such as divorce.

He decried land shortage saying that churches should be given priority.

Rev. Sibanda appealed to government to include the clergy in the formulation of laws.
