First Lady Gertrude Mutharika has urged women in the country to dedicate their time to spiritual matters as the future of their communities largely depends on their dedication to God.
The First Lady was speaking at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre when she hosted interdenominational thanksgiving praise and worship prayers on Saturday.
She urged women to include God in their plans for the year and beyond.
“We are the custodians of life in our homes, communities and the nation. We, therefore, need to include God in all we plan to do so that He can give us success,” advised Mutharika.
She added that it was necessary to come together to pray for the success of the new year.
“Last year was difficult as we lost many lives to calamities. Let’s commit this year to God so that love should prevail among all Malawians,” said the First Lady.
The prayers attracted women from various churches, including the Catholic Church, Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), Living Waters, Malawi Assemblies of God, Quadria Muslim, Seventh-Day Adventist and Family Clinic Ministries.
They were led by pastors Carol Chapomba, Enesia Chitheka, Yami Tchika, Constance Masamba and among others. n
