ZCC Prayer Meetings

28 March 2012, 07:12

Please explain something to me.

Once a year one of our neighbours have about 200 people over at his house for their annual ZCC Prayer Meeting.

A week ago I received an email from my neighbour informing me about another Prayer meeting. It will, once again have about 200 attendees and will be on the Saturday, WHOLE Saturday.

Fine by me, we've never had issues with these meetings. In fact, at about 12 at night you can hear a distant harmony of beautiful voices putting you to sleep!! No problems.

This year, a different story! People started arriving at about 9 on the Saturday morning and the Prayers started at 11am. This carried on until 11:30 on Sunday morning!!! What do the ZCC guys pray about at such a meeting?

Please, to those who wish to comment negatively on my story, I am a faithfull individual and have NO problems with other people and their religion. Just want to know why these Prayer sessions are held and why for almost 24 hours?
