His pragmatic leadership is also clearly proven by his successful leading from the front as characterized by the setting up of the inter-ministerial National Taskforce and declaring this day 15 June as the day for prayer and fasting.
This has resulted in significant raise in the amount of trust in the Second Republic which has committed most of its works in hands of God every time it conduct all its government and nation building programmes.

“While today has been declared as the day for prayer however the bible in 1 Thessalonians 5 says we must pray without ceasing. Today we come standing on the scriptures found in 2 Chronicles 7 vs 13 - 15.
“We therefore gather in prayer in total belief and knowledge that the word of God is true and lives. We are confident that God's word lives as a Nation we are faced with this pandemic,” said President Mnangagwa.

The word of God is clear that in such circumstances, there will be some who will believe in God while others will defy his word. In Zimbabwe we have chosen to be in the category that humbles ourselves, repents, seeks God's message and glorify his name
Blessed is the nation that seeks Jehovah. Hence as your President I will not hesitate to lead you in this prayer,” said President Mnangagwa.
