Prayers for Zimbabwe

Prayer Day for ZimbabweOn Sunday 26 September, the Archbishop called for individuals to join him in prayer on the International Prayer Day for Zimbabwe.

His Prayer is:

"Almighty God,

We pray for the people of Zimbabwe.

May the churches be united as they continue to offer the practical help needed to equip those who struggle to lift themselves out of poverty.

We ask that you bless the farmers of Zimbabwe.

Encourage them to be motivated and disciplined as they work your land so that they may benefit for years to come.

Let them see that they have an important role to play in the rebuilding and sustainable future of their country.

For those in desperate need, we pray that you will give them hope in times of difficulty.

We pray that this nation will be renewed and refreshed through your Holy Spirit.


Prayer gatherings across Zimbabwe have been organised by Trumpet Call for Transformation, a partnership between the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe and Foundations for Farming.
