The President of Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Lazarus Chakwera has invited Malawians and all people who trust in God to join hands in observing a 3-day fast starting on Wednesday, June 12 until Friday, June 14, 2019.
Malawi Freedom Network understands that the purpose of the fast is to pray for “Victory over wickedness and for good leaders and truth to win.”
Chakwera who is also a Senior Minister in the Assemblies of God advises those partaking in the fast to begin by reading the Book of Esther, and then dedicate 30 minutes each day to praise and worship God with songs of victory; to pray in agreement with Psalm 35, Psalm 124 and Deuteronomy 28: 1-13; and declare the exposure and defeat of all evil forces in Malawi.
Reverend Doctor Lazarus Chakwera is former President of the Assemblies of God in Malawi who when aspiring for the country’s presidency had declared his aspirations for another kind of ministry in God’s ordinance and direction.
The MCP President had in the May 21 national elections paired with veteran politician Muhammed Sidik Mia, a devout Muslim as well as Sheikh with the title of Al- Haj (a Muslim who visited the Islamic Holy Place in Mecca).
