Today we shall be engaging in prayer for the nation of Lesotho. Apart from being a recognised neighbor to South Africa, Lesotho is a macro land locked country which extends to its aforementioned neighbor – the Republic of South Africa, totally. Formerly known as Basutoland only to be renewed as the Kingdom of Lesotho, due to Independence outreach from the United Kingdom (1966); this perhaps buttress the known fact of her democratic and sovereign governmental system.
Even with the fact that Lesotho might not be said to be as populated as Gauteng Province, with a record of about two million inhabitants and gross domestic product level per capital of $1,020; it’s quite depressing to know that Lesotho still stands as a low income country hence is at the bane of poverty. This inadvertently calls for the need to unleash prayer for the nation of Lesotho and to further hold water on this judgement, it’s unarguable that poverty is a disease. Though remedial, the problem with poverty is its potentials to infiltrate mentality and if proper proficient care is not taken, recoil it into a dance floor of aggravated crime acts and dastard attempts. Proven over times, a poor man has a quicker tendency of being involved in crime thrillers than a financially sufficient individual — this crime rate is hence at the peak in Lesotho and without further questioning, even the reader of this would agree that nothing else could be timely than a truckload of prayer for the nation of Lesotho.
Initially petty ranging from pick pockets to night juggling but now completely aggravated to violent mediums, from scissored throats to shattered louvers, this moment is a dire one in the history of Lesotho and alarming as it might be, the poverty tendency is evenly on the health of the citizens. Jaw breaking records of mortality rates from hunger, frustration, weird illnesses and panic of the unbecoming, the only leverage every man is forced to have is to tender admonitions to the sacred and like manna, perhaps pity would fall.
WHY YOU SHOULD PRAY FOR THE NATION OF LESOTHO.
“2 Chronicles 7:14 – if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Lesotho is at the verge of not just losing its own human resources but even going into an economic drain by the after effects of these danger prone acts. In a way, even Lesotho is becoming a potential wreckage ground for natural disasters, as an implication of persistent human trespass.
While it’s no enforced task on a fellow African to find it necessary to say a prayer for the nation of Lesotho, it’s incumbent to all humans generally to pass a kind word in whisper to this struggling nation. For when your neighbor knows no peace, how then can you know tranquil? Perhaps you too want to pray for the nation of Lesotho, do follow through the next paragraph to get clearer details on how to.
PRAYER FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF LESOTHO.
Praying is an holistic enforcement, praying for the government is even more of a biblical verdict. It’s even more worrisome that a number of Christians do not see this as a point of duty but rather feel they are unconnected to those who are in the ruling sphere. In all honesty, a government is made up of a greater percentage of prayerful, holistic enmasse than a body of lawmakers and anglophone speakers in suits. This is not just a proposition but even backed up by Psalm 22:28 — “For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations”.
A country in political mishap can be traceable to maladministration, persistent economic severities in Lesotho can be stringed to a thousand things and more, yet wouldn’t be enough — from an African country that craved for freedom when it wasn’t ready for such yet, dictatorial rulers, cabals and undeserving citizenry. While we pass blame game, the nation wallows in gallows and sallows of anguish, impoverishment and if care is not taken, an epidemic that’d cause a death flu. To avert this long but swift chain, is to join hands together and pass a prayer for the nation of Lesotho in unison.
Pray that the best of men ascend the throne of powers, pray that the best of men do not loose their good hearts while in power. Pray that power do not consume the leader, for power in itself is a demon. The leader of a nation is indirectly the refraction of his own citizens, is Lesotho a city of terrible cabals and vagabonds? Definitely not but it might risk becoming one, if we all do not take this as a collective duty and mutter a prayer for the nation of Lesotho, now and tomorrow. Tomorrow doesn’t end tomorrow.
PRAYER FOR THE ECONOMY OF LESOTHO.
If you want to wreck a nation, take away its economic energy. A nation that cannot sustain itself is more of a kingdom without its pivotal foundation. From a critical look into Lesotho resources world, it’s a necessity to pray massively for the economy of Lesotho. Phillipians 4:6 further triggers the point that with sufficient prayer and petition unto God, business be it small scale or large scale (as far as each forms a cognizance in the commerce chain) needs tons of supplications to hold on during storms. The people of a nation can only frolick and be proud of being from that part of the world, if they can bring something to the table and are not just idealists without capitals to substantiate it. To reduce crime rates and poverty level, legit employment is a priority. When we speak of legit employments, it all boils down to the economic plant of the nation – Lesotho, here concerned.
Need I say more, say a word of prayer for the economy of Lesotho day and night. If it falls, the same masses who refuse to pray would suffer the brunt more.
PRAYER FOR THE CITIZENS OF LESOTHO.
Apart from being an individual obligation to pray for one self at every daybreak, it’s even enacted biblically in Romans 13:1-7 to not only pray for oneself but even be a good citizen, by praying for another to live well in peace.
The people of Lesotho are in trying times, their plights cannot be quantified in words and even if they can’t get all the hugs, cuddles and pats in the world, prayers gets to any zone in the world — long or short distance. Take people out of a nation, then watch such nation become a desecrated desert. Lesotho is still surviving because of the sanity of her citizens, at this moment, more prayers for the citizens of Lesotho is highly needed to keep that sanity and strength in check.
PRAYER FOR THE CHURCHES OF LESOTHO.
“There’s salvation in no one else and there’s no other name under heaven given to people, and we must be saved by it” — Acts 4:12.
Lucifer tends to strike at periods like this, when the peace of a nation is wagging its tail and the people are in perceptive despair. To infiltrate a man’s heart, the first attempt should be to ruin his bridge towards meeting with God fervently. The churches of Lesotho no doubt need as much supplications and remembrance in holistic night outs, as much as people so as to be able to retain their abilities in fighting mundane odds posed by agents of doom.
The gravity of the Christianity religion in restoring calm to the citizens first, then the nation and economy at large cannot be underrated. The Holy book in itself is a vault of open secrets to rescuing the nation and this is why at the end of the day, there’s little or no choice but to return to that very Genesis of everything that came to be – prayers.
Say a prayer for the churches of Lesotho and the nation as a whole, they need more than nuggets to hang on at this period in history.
