The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) says the church will hold prayers for the wellbeing of the nation because Zambia cannot afford to distance itself from God.
CCZ general secretary Suzanne Matale said the country needed prayers in such hard and trying moments.
Rev Matale said the three church mother bodies would meet today meet to decide when the prayers would be held.
“The three church mother bodies are meeting today to discuss when the prayers will be held to ask God to intervene in the situation the country is going through. With these happenings, Zambia cannot afford to distance itself from God” Rev Matale said.
On Thursday more than 51 passengers aboard a Post Services Bus perished in a road accidentin Chibombo area of the Central province in a head on collusion with a truck.
The country has also witnessed in the recent past unexplained suspected ritual murders that have claimed lives of tax drivers and young women around the country.
Rev Matale said in an interview that the three church mother bodies would hold prayers to seek God’s intervention.
She said that the country needed God’s intervention now than ever before and appealed to all to join in prayers.
She said it was important for all churches in the country to pray for the nation especially for families who have continued to lose their beloved ones in unexplained circumstances.
“Zambia is facing a serious time which needs prayers from everyone to seek for God’s intervention,” she said.
More than 30 people who died in the road accident would be buried today on the copperbelt while others would be buried in Kabwe and in other places.
