Today we shall be engaging in prayer for the nation of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe, a South African nation blessed with precious stones (as the name implies- Great house of stone), Rivers (river Zambezi and Limpopo), Victoria falls (one of the seven wonders of the world, Zimbabwe’s famed attraction), wildlife and a good soil for agriculture, is a landlocked country Surrounded by Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia.
She ceremonially got her independence from the United Kingdom on 18th April 1980, moved on with her affairs and enjoyed the good times of her independence until the early 2000 when her economy began to decline and her name became something else. Inflation became prevalent in the nation, corrupt leaders mismanaged national funds, poverty rate increased, violence increased and number of out of school children drastically increased.
WHY YOU SHOULD PRAY FOR ZIMBABWE
Prayer is a means by which one draws on a higher/supernatural power or force. It is a means by which man shows is not sufficient on his own. Behold, I am the LORD, God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me? (Jeremiah 32: 27). This bible passage brings to our knowledge that God has dominion over all flesh and hears all flesh (including Zimbabweans) and no man can successfully do anything except God is involved because he created the Havens and the Earth (Genesis 1:1) and he will provide answers to all supplication diligently asked.
Pray that God will restore Zimbabwe to the good old days where there was true liberty. Pray that God will from hence forth be involved in the affairs of Zimbabwe for a better Zimbabwe, a better Africa and a better Universe. When things are well in Zimbabwe, the burden of the world will be reduced.
PRAYER FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF ZIMBABWE
The Governments are the leaders of the nation. They decide/control the affairs of the nation which directly/indirectly determine the direction of the nation. There has been previous government in Zimbabwe that tried all it could to restore her back to what she used to be even if they could not make her better, but failed due to some decisions they made. Something went wrong somewhere at a particular point which resulted to the Zimbabwe we have today. Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain (Psalms 127: 1). The leaders can only try to make the nation better, but without God, it would be difficult. Let’s pray that God will rebuild Zimbabwe through her leaders in Jesus name.
God is the giver of good wisdom; pray that God will equip the leaders of Zimbabwe with the wisdom from heaven above in other to diligently direct/control the affairs of Zimbabwe. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3: 16 – 17) .
PRAYER FOR THE CITIZENS OF ZIMBABWE
The citizens of Zimbabwe are in abject poverty as they are suffering from the effect of Hyper-inflation (a high level of inflation which is the state where too much money is in circulation or in the economy). A lot of money is needed to buy things of small quantity. Pray that God will uphold the citizens of Zimbabwe and also provide for their needs. And my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4: 19).
Pray that God will release the spirit of perseverance and patience into the midst of the Zimbabweans that they may be patient with the government while God is working through the government, that may persevere while they hope for a better Zimbabwe.
But we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5: 3-5).
PRAY FOR THE ECONOMY OF ZIMBABWE
There is a lot of turbulence in the economy of Zimbabwe, various economy ban, impoundments and sanctions which makes it a no go area for investors worldwide. All these have led to the limitations of the Zimbabweans as a whole. Investors are not willing to invest in the economy and those willing are limited due to various sanctions owing to Zimbabwe Government policy.
Pray that God will breathe life into the economy of Zimbabwe, that investors would be compelled to invest in the economy
Pray God will make peace reign between Zimbabwe and the outside world that bilateral relationship would be established between Zimbabwe and other nations.
PRAYER FOR THE CHURCHES IN ZIMBABWE
In such a situation Zimbabwe is going through, Intercession has to be done for the churches in Zimbabwe that they would be steadfast in the faith and not grow weary so as to be able to pray fervently for their nation especially at this time of trial.
Pray that the church would be well equipped to carry out its right functions accurately, which one is to fight the spiritual battle.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strong holds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled (2 Corinthians 10: 3 – 6).
