Madam Mutharika said this on Monday at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre when she led hundreds of women in interdenominational thanks-giving prayers for the just ended peaceful tripartite elections.

She said elections were a threat to any country as they can build or destroy, hence the need to seek God’s intervention.

 “Last year, we assembled at the same place (Sanjika Palace) praying for peaceful tripartite elections.

“That did not end here as some people went as far as fasting and praying in their respective homes as well as at their workplaces. Others even prayed at the mountains.

“Today, we are ably convinced that God intervened in our petition, as such, we have reasons to give thanks to Him for answering our prayers on election as evidenced by the just ended peaceful 2019 tripartite elections,” she said.

“The life, property, beautiful homes and children we have right now is because of God, without Him, we are no body,” said Mutharika who quoted the Bible in the Book of Psalms 18:1-15.

In her remarks, Rose Mbewe, wide to Apostle Madalitso Mbewe of Calvary Family Church commended the First Lady for hosting the women in thanks giving prayers.

“Of course, there have been incidences of violence in some parts of the country but that did not interfere with the elections, a clear indication that God has been on our side all along.

“As such, let us join the First Lady in lifting our voices in prayers for He is a faithful God and He never leaves us alone,” she said.

The women also prayed against the spirit of intimidation, negativity, evil counsel, stubborn pursuer and spirit that kills things at an infant stage.

The event was also spiced up by different praise choruses and worship songs by women from different churches.
