Pray with us
In 1962, Mai Reverend Kachidza, of the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe, and Mai Major Nhari, of the Salvation Army, formed the first World Day of Prayer (WDP) Zimbabwe interdenominational committee meeting with various Bishops, Ministers, Reverends and Pastors wives and Amai Matsiro. It was held in one of their houses in Mbare. What made these women meet? Mai Reverend Kachidza and Mai Major Nhari saw the need for these wives and other women to meet, pray, know each other and strengthen one another in doing God’s work. They would meet and discuss various issues affecting the society. In 1965, Mibatanidzwa were formed in various locations.As the movement grew, they were faced with the problem of prayer meeting venues as their homes were being overwhelmed by the growing numbers. In 1967, they approached Reverend Kachidza of the methodist Church, who was then General Secretary of the Bible Society of Zimbabwe, to bestow them an office for their meetings. They would meet once a month at the Bible House to discuss issues that they were facing at different locations. They would then meet at their Mibatanidzwa for prayers in which everyone was welcome regardless of which denomination or church they belonged to.
