By Vincent Gunde

Women from all denominations across Dowa district held a -day long prayers on Friday at the Dowa CCAP Church which is under Nkhoma CCAP Synod with a call for all women to practice tolerance and love in their everyday life situations.

The prayers are following national prayers of worship and praising the Lord which were graced by the First Lady Madam Monica Chakwera on 1st March, 2024 in Blantyre and representatives of the women in Dowa were also in attendance.

Regional Coordinator for the prayers in the centre Mrs. Tracy Massi, said the prayers will strengthen unity among all women regardless of churches they are coming from for unity of purpose and oneness which will in the end lead them to change their hearts.

Massi said the prayers will deepen their relationships as well as bringing them closer to the Lord through praying and singing together as well as listening to the word of God which will change their hearts to become women of true reconciliation, tolerance and love.

She expressed hope that at the end of the prayers, the women will be going back to their denominations to preach to the other women that failed to make it to the district prayers at the Dowa boma for them to walk with the spirit of the Lord.

“These women will change from stage one to another and they will go back home totally different from the way they have come to attend these prayers,” said Massi.

She encouraged women that failed to grace the district prayers at the Dowa boma that there is power in oneness, praying that next year, the Holy Spirit will touch and reminding them to take part in the prayers of the national, district and zones.

In her remarks, Dowa district prayers organizing Chairperson Mirriam Chingayere, said she is happy that God has fulfilled what they planned for by bringing together women from all the denominations across the district to one place to sing and dance while praising the Lord.

Chingayere said from the district prayers, women will go to the 8 zones such as Mtengowanthenga, Madisi, Mponela, Namwiri, Dzaleka, Mtata and Kasatsi for the same prayers and praising the Lord through singing quoting Mathews Chapter 25.

She said every year, the women prayers wound-up their activities visiting prisons and cheering the sick at the hospitals and this year, they have planned to cheer the sick at the Salima District Hospital.

This year’s Dowa district prayer’s services were held under the theme “Tolerance and Love between one and fellow others,”
