Woman of faith walks 100kms praying for President Lungu


A FIFTY-year-old woman of Chongwe district has walked almost 100kms asking God to continue protecting the life of President Lungu and to grant him continued good health.
Petronella Nyambe, a deputy head teacher of Mulalika Primary school said she got the conviction to do a solo walk from her home in Mulalika area, 50kms away from Chongwe Town and onwards to Lusaka, to petition God over the life and good health of the President.

“I walked for 51 kilometres from my home to Chongwe town centre on April 25, 2015. The following day, April 26, 2015, I walked from Chongwe town to Lusaka town centre while praying for the President’s continued good health,” Mrs Nyambe said.
Mrs Nyambe said it is everyone’s obligation to pray for the country and its leadership especially the President.
Quoting from 1 Timothy 2:1-4, Mrs Nyambe said prayer is important and the Bible makes special mention of praying for those in positions of authority.

“Such authorities include President Lungu and Government officials. So, it is important that each one of us takes it personal to pray for our leaders, especially the President,” Mrs Nyambe said.
Mrs Nyambe said leaders carry a degree of responsibility over their followers and they are often the targets of criticisms.
She said if leaders are leading well, even the country prospers.
“We should mention our leaders before God in prayer and ask Him to have His way in their hearts, to support those around them, and to use their leadership to benefit their followers. We should pray for their good health, too,” She said.

Mrs Nyambe said the concept of praying for the President and other leaders is not unique to democratic nations, as it began decades ago.
“The Bible contains many commands to pray for our leaders, national and local, secular and religious. According to 2 Chronicles 7:14 the Bible says, ‘If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.’ This is why we need to pray for President Lungu because it is for the benefit of all of us,” Mrs Nyambe said.





  1. Why walk the 100kms??? Why not just pray??? God hears & answers earnest prayers… His eyes never slumber… …or is it some way of attracting sympathizers??? just thinking…

  2. Isaiah 9:16 says:for the leaders of this people cause them err and those who are led by them are destroyed.
    Mathew 15:14 says :”let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch”.
    So please leave God out of your decisions. He gave us authority to choose.
    His not the one who choose Idi amin, Sadam Hussain, Hitler, Gadaff, Mabutu Seseseko,Paul port, Musolin, Bin Ladin or any of your unGodly leaders. A leader is not chosen by God. If You want u can choose a dog and its going to rule you. U made that decision and you will be lead into a ditch.
