Blantyre Synod of the CCAP says the three days of national prayers and fasting have re-energized the country’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
The Synod said there’s need for concerted efforts in fighting COVID-19 and as a religious institution it believes that both physical and spiritual efforts should go hand in hand.
General Secretary of the synod Reverend Dr Billy Gama made the remarks in Blantyre during a media briefing.
Gama pointed out that the CCAP Church is a partner in development to Government as such the church joins the current administration in all efforts to fight the pandemic and commending it for the three days of prayer and fasting.
“When the President His Excellency Dr. Lazarus Chakwera conveyed a message of three days of prayer and fasting as a Synod we commend this idea considering that the State President is a man of God.
We are partners in development as such we are echoing the same message to the church members.
” At a time like this one we need God most that’s why we commend Government for not shutting down churches but emphasized that all church goers should adhere to all precautionary measures,” said Gama.
The General Secretary said COVID-19 is real and called upon the citizenry to take all preventive measures religiously.
He further said the pandemic has also affected the church financially.
He said: “Our church members are very much used to giving their offerings when they are present physically at church with the prevalence of the pandemic some have chosen to pray in their homes as such inflow of tithes and offerings have indeed gone down.
But we have devised other electronic methods to enable those willing to give unto the Lord’s coffers in the comfort of their homes.”
Currently, the country has registered 2992 confirmed cases, 62 deaths and 1153 people have recovered from the disease.
