President Jacob Zuma on Friday called on Christians to pray for politicians amid temptation from the Devil while they tried to do their work.
The president was speaking to congregants of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God at the Ellis Park Stadium on Friday.
“We need you to pray for us as the leaders, as it’s mention in the bible. Please pray for us not to make mistakes,” he said in IsiZulu, as recorded by ENCA.
“As you know the Devil is always out to tempt us. Please pray for us to behave and treat each other with respect in parliament. Also pray for us to govern well.”
“You must pray for government to run the country by the will God and that of the people,” said Zuma.
