WINDHOEK, 29 APR (NAMPA) – Model Prayer church members held their 4th eight kilometre prayer walk here on Saturday, “to seek divine backing for the progression of the Harambee Prosperity Plan (HPP)”.
This annual event, normally hosted under different themes, was dedicated to the current economic situation in Namibia, and members walked along Independence Avenue from the City of Windhoek.
Bishop Henry Ndozi-Okia of the church acknowledged the current economic downturn and the slow implementation of the HPP, stating that this needs the intervention of prayers.
“Since the proposal of HPP, little progression has been observed with the implementation of the plan for economic development,” he said.
Ndozi-Okia informed Nampa that the walk was also dedicated to other challenges that Namibia is currently experiencing such as road accidents, gender-based violence and school violence.
“This annual event is not only hosted under the theme of economic development, but also general road safety and themes to address violence and negative character development in schools,” he said.
He said all churches in Namibia need to come together and participate in the event to combat these challenges in the Namibian society.
