Event co-ordinator, Violet Kadzunge, of the Vision Protection
International Ministry (VPIM), said they were forced to act following last Saturday’s explosion which killed two people and injured 47 others at a Zanu PF campaign rally in Bulawayo.
“What happened in Bulawayo has made us put more emphasis on praying for our nation and peace. I believe God wants to use the June 23 incident to be part of the jigsaw puzzle pieces in praying for peace,” she said.
VPIM has held the thanksgiving events annually since 2015. Kadzunge said they had invited musicians Dudu Manhenga and Call to Worship to perform at the Saturday event.
A number of pastors, including Ken Clerk, Marvelous Ncube and Priscilla Wazara, are also expected to grace the annual prayer session.
The event is themed A Chronicle of Good News.
“I believe thanksgiving is a powerful tool of warfare. People should make thanksgiving a lifestyle. God is drawing the nation to that place of thanking him and not asking,” Kadzunge said.
The highlight of the day will see representatives from the 10 provinces in our country who will be decreeing and declaring peace in their provinces during the elections.
