Sumaili asks Zambians to pray for National Day of PrayerBy Tenson Mkhala on 28 Aug 2018
Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Reverend Godfridah Sumaili has asked the church to pray for the National Day of Prayer and Fasting which falls on October 18.
Speaking when she officiated at the church leaders’ engagement meeting under the theme ‘Prophetic agenda for national transformation’ at Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka, Rev Sumaili asked the clergy to keep praying for the national day of prayer.
“May I take this opportunity to call upon all clergy in this country to start preparing and praying for the National Day of Prayer and Fasting which is on October 18, 2018. As you may be aware, this is a big day to this nation. A day of reflection. A day of unity and above
all, a day of reconciliation,” Rev Sumaili said.
“We must love this day because other countries are admiring us. I have interacted with people from other countries and they have told me that they wish they had such a day like us. This is a special day which should be embraced by all Zambians.”
And Rev Sumaili said national values and principles were meant to give direction in the manner people conduct themselves in their day to day lives.
“Zambia was declared a Christian nation and as such, we need to embrace our principles and values. Real transformation of the mind must be that of a Christian nation. It must start with you the clergy. We need to give direction to our leaders. You are our spirituals parents. I am saying real transformation starts with our mind. Let us change and renew our minds in order to give proper directions to this nation,” said Rev Sumaili.
Rev Sumaili further said the transformation agenda must be embraced by all stakeholders including the civil society and private sector.
Among the people that attended the event were Secretary to Cabinet Dr Roland Msiska, Bread of Life International Bishop Joel Imakando and Advocates for the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation Bishop Billy Mfula.
Others were Senior Chief Ngabwe of Central Province and Chief Kaputa.
