Harare will on the 6th of February be hosting the national Inter- Faith Day at the City Sports Centre.

Announcing the event to representatives of the Christian and Muslim community in Harare on Friday Minister of state responsible for Harare Province Miriam Chikukwa called for unity of purpose on the big day.

“We are calling upon everyone to pray for our economy, we want God to intervene in our economy and in our homes,” said Chikukwa.

“We want peace and we want to shun violence, of late we have been reading in the papers where we have found out that there is domestic violence in most of our homes. We want to pray so that God brings peace upon us.”

She said people must be able to speak together because if people live in harmony there will be “development and our businesses will thrive again”.

Minister Chikukwa said if the nation prays current problems the country is facing will end.

“If you look at the industries, I know a lot of people including Christians and Muslims have been saying industries have closed and when I look at them I say they will come again according to Ezekiel 37 every bone in the valley will know where it is supposed to go.”

She said after the prayer she has faith that people will come together at the same time experience more development, economically, spiritually, socially and politically.
