Zambian President leading The Nation In National Prayers Breaks Into Tears

2 min

Still looking for a leader that has the fear of God? Well, while we might want to look at America and Obama all we have are more gay rights, more transgenders and a lot more issues.

Just this week, a School District was forced to ban Jesus, Prayers, Hymns and anything that will ‘brand’ any function at schools as either ‘religious’ or ‘christian’. They do not want to offend the atheists and free thinkers.

Psa_53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity

On Oct. 1, “all persons, regardless of gender identity, shall have the right to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities and privileges of any place of public accommodation.” That is in Massachusetts. So we might not find a perfect example from there.

But we have the example that is almost similar to that of King David. Kind David is one of the very few political leaders in the Bible who publicly acknowledged God and lived a life to prove so.

The prayer of David after his fall, illustrates the nature of true sorrow for sin. His repentance was sincere and deep. There was no effort to palliate his guilt; no desire to escape the judgment threatened, inspired his prayer. David saw the enormity of his transgression; he saw the defilement of his soul; he loathed his sin. It was not for pardon only that he prayed, but for purity of heart. He longed for the joy of holiness–to be restored to harmony and communion with God. This was the language of his soul:

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord
imputeth not iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no guile.”
Psalm 32:1, 2.
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to
Thy loving-kindness:
According unto the multitude of Thy tender
mercies blot out my transgressions. . . .
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my
sin is ever before me. . . .
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. . . .
Create in me a clean heart, O God;
And renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Thy presence;
And take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
And uphold me with Thy free spirit. . . .
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, Thou
God of my salvation:
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy
righteousness.” Psalm 51:1-14. {SC 24.3}

A repentance such as this, is beyond the reach of our own power to accomplish; it is obtained only from Christ, who ascended up on high and has given gifts unto men.{SC 25.1}

This was the same as the Zambian President. While praying and rededicating the Nation to God, President Edgar Lungu while thanking God for choosing him to lead the Nation was overwhelmed with emotion and started to cry.

Have you ever thought of how useless really without God you individually are? I want to believe President Lungu looked at his ineptness to leading a Nation back to God and that God believed in him and gave him the job! Such a beautiful prayer!
