Prayer for rain: One day at a time

  • 7 December, 2018

Responding to King Letsie III’s call to pray for rain, the Lesotho Correctional Services (LCS) staff, inmates, Heads of Departments, Public Servants and community members convened on top of the Liphookoaneng Mountain on Thursday.

Speaking at the event on behalf of the District Administrator (DA), Ms. Lipalesa Sebilo commended the LCS for organising the event and those who made time to attend the prayer session.

“It is good to respond to the King’s call” she said.

LCS Superintendent (Supt.), Tšeliso Lefa, said having learnt that every living thing survives on water, they honoured the King’s request to pray for rain.

Supt. Lefa said he is hopeful that, as people sacrificed their time to climb the mountain to pray, their plea will heard by the good Lord, adding that hopefully peace will prevail in the country, especially that the country is going through the reforms process.

In addition, Supt. Lefa said the country is suffering excessive soil erosion evident from the once fertile soils that are now dongas.

Chief Monaheng Letooane said, in the past, people would go to the mountain to pray, likening the scenario to that of Jesus Christ and Abraham.

Chief Letooane urged Basotho to continue praying for peace and prosperity.

The session was also graced with God-praising poems. Lena
