Over 300 international pastors from different denominations have been praying for peace and unity in Zimbabwe as the country heads for harmonised elections on July 30.
The pastors met this week at the Korean and African Pastors United Conference (KAPUC), which started on July 9 and ended on the 11th at the Dutch Hall in Harare.
Founder of KAPUC Pastor Daniel (Roksu Noh) of South Korea encouraged Zimbabweans to heed President Mnangagwa’s call for peace and unity before, during and after elections.
Speaking during the conference KAPUC director Reverend David Mudimba said it was important that churches come together during this time to pray for Zimbabwe.
“The purpose of our meeting is praying for the nation of Zimbabwe, its future and to have successful elections,” said Reverend Mudimba.
“When peace starts with spiritual leaders, then it will manifest in everyone. If as pastors we are united, then our political leaders and the electorate will unite as well.
“We are praying for peace and we hope to see it reflecting. The forthcoming elections should be peaceful, free and fair.”
He also urged Zimbabweans to accept the outcome of the elections keeping in mind that ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God’.
“We believe that God is the one who appoints and lifts leaders for us, so in these elections may we experience God’s spirit, power and unity,” said Reverend Mudimba.
Most churches have been coming together to pray for the new dispensation and have also joined President Mnangagwa in calling for peace ahead of the elections.
