Letís All Pray For Our Leaders

At last it seems the dust will settle. The silly year is hopefully over and no doubt it outdid itself by ending in the silliest of ways.

Mmegi Blogs :: Letís All Pray For Our Leaders








Now we can go back to the business we went to the 2014 polls for. Congratulations are very much in order, especially to Hon. Mokgweetsi Masisi. He has been duly endorsed by the National Assembly through secret ballot as a good number, if not most politically conscious citizens wanted. A big thank you also goes to our judiciary system. A judiciary system that can be trusted is cardinal to the enhancement and protection of democracy. I can again say, “thank you God, I am proud to be a Motswana”!

God has journeyed with us this far and is not about to dump us by the wayside. We need to continue to pray for our nation, to pray for our leaders. Some usually assume leaders refer to those in the ruling party. Magosi are our leaders, we need to pray for them so that God strengthens them and give them wisdom.

 Our Magosi have an important role to play, not only at our village or ethnic groups level. These are custodians of Botho who should also help the political leadership and call them to order when they forget that they are also their subjects. Well, one may object that we are a republic and not a monarchy, but the fact of the matter is that we still have Bogosi as part of our own twist of a republic.

 We need to continue to pray for our President: It should not be a matter of one liking him or not, of political convictions or party affiliation, Lt. Gen Ian Khama Seretse Khama is the President of the Republic of Botswana and therefore my President, and your President as long as you are a citizen of this great and beautiful country.

 We need to pray that God guide him and bless him in ways so that, whatever he will do as President will be in line with the kingdom values- that he will act for justice and truth. We pray God to guide him through paths of righteousness, above all, that Christ alone be Lord of his life. I say, Christ without hesitation as he committed to serve this nation and protect its constitution as he laid his hand on the bible and also that he is a member of the Anglican Church.

Let us pray for the Vice President, a member of the United Congregational Church of Southern Africa. May God bless and keep you, may God alone be the ruler of your life and conscience.

As you enter this high office, may God help you to support and sometimes correct the President if he, as a human being does, to falter. The challenges that Hon. Masisi faces as we approach political transition to a new leadership leading to

2019 elections cannot be underestimated. But when all is said and done, it is the wellbeing of Botswana that should take precedence over all other considerations and it takes commitment to God’s path of justice to prevail.

We also congratulate Madam Speaker Gladys Kokorwe. We note that there was controversy which should never have been before she was elected the Speaker of the National Assembly.

I believe, knowing Mme Mma Kokorwe, that she can hold her own without any favour or push by any invisible hand. The unfortunate and unnecessary court battles that were an indictment on our democracy have only served to spoil the party for her!

Mme Mma Kokorwe should have never been made, or should one say no one should have ever been made to believe she is where she is with the help of anybody let alone any circumstances safe for her own abilities. We need to pray for her to do what she ought to do to catapult our democratic credentials to the heights to which they belong. The road ahead will be bumpy, having an opposition that is suspicious but only commitment to God’s truth from a woman of prayer that you are will save the day!

We pray for Hon. Duma Boko, I assume will be, if it has not been officially confirmed first, the Leader of Opposition. This is going to be a challenging season for you sir. People’s expectations are very high; they are yearning for something different. Times for political posturing are over and it is time to get into the trench of politics of and for life.

You promised not to oppose for the sake if not the fun of it, but to complement where need be and oppose where necessary. That sounded like a breath of fresh air to our politics though some blindly radical could be seeing that as selling out. We pray that you will be ruled by principles and not political expediency. Yet you need to be committed to the course for which you were elected.

The greatest challenge that needs you to walk closely with your God is to fulfil the task of being seen as the alternative, or as the government in waiting.

We need to trust you and your organisation to take us forward if or when given the opportunity and never to fear that you would reverse the fortunes we have achieved thus far. We pray for all of you women and men placed in the corridors of power. We pray that you know that the power and the glory are God’s and that God is glorified when you serve with humility and work for the righteousness of the All Merciful. To God be the glory!
