Month of Prayer Comes to an End
11/10/11
The Month of September was billed as a time for reflection and as such it was led by the Christian community in Botswana. Thus the 7th October 2011, saw the Workplace Wellness Committee at The People’s Ministry facilitate the closing ceremony of The Month of Prayer.

The Month of September was billed as a time for reflection and as such it was led by the Christian community in Botswana. Thus the 7th October 2011, saw the Workplace Wellness Committee at The People’s Ministry facilitate the closing ceremony of The Month of Prayer.

The objectives of the Month Prayer were;

  • To promote behaviour change and practices of prevention of fur­ther HIV transmission.
  • To mobilise the Christian com­munity to be increasingly responsive to the situation of HIV and AIDS in the country.
  • To appreciate efforts so far made by the Botswana government and the nation in responding to the scourge, and to further sensitise and empower grass roots communities through community based campaigns throughout the month of September.

 Mr. Robert Gabasiane, a pastor who graced the clo­sure of the Month of Prayer which was held at the Ministry of Local Government Headquarters in Gaborone, was interviewed by the e-Bulletin team and here are some pearls of knowl­edge that he shared:

  • Prayer is the core facilitator of behavior change.
  • Give and you shall prosper.
  • The attainment of Vision 2016 can only be reached through belief in God and prayer.
  • Society needs to open its eyes and hearts to reli­gion as it is our saving grace.
  • The greatest gift society has received is Jesus and as such we should appreciate the Lords sacrifice.
  • Abstinence from all that is evil is necessary for us as a society to be emancipated.

NB: It must be noted that evil does not only relate to sins noted in the Bible but, it is also extended to; late coming at work, disrespect to others etc
