LILONGWE--Members of the Anglican Church in the country have been asked to pray for the country's leaders.
Delivering his sermon whose theme was kings and judges, Mr. E.L.C. Chirwa, a lay leader at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Lilongwe, said that it was the responsibility of Christians to pray for both religious and political leaders for them not to go astray.
He said leaders are human beings who make mistakes as he cited all the presidents that ruled the country, saying each one of them had strengths as well as weaknesses and that it was up to the Christian community to pray for those leaders so that their weaknesses should not surpass their strengths.
The lay leader said the current leadership started well but things were getting worse. He then asked the congregation to go on their knees to pray for the leadership rather than wasting time complaining.
St. Paul's Anglican Church at Kaliyeka township in Lilongwe is in the Diocese of Lake Malawi and is headed by Canon Dzamtenge.
