Government has reaffirmed the importance of the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance, and Reconciliation to the nation and invites the participation of all Zambians in observing the day.
Acting Chief Government Spokesperson, MAKOZO CHIKOTE says the day is important on the national calendar, which is also a public holiday.
Mr. CHIKOTE says the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance, and Reconciliation also comes six days before Zambia celebrates 59-years of independence, a period marked by stability in the country’s journey and transitions from one Government to another.
He has attributed this to God who has favoured Zambia and lavished the nation with his love that has made it possible for the country to stand together as one.
Mr. CHIKOTE says the day is a time to reflect on the love and Lordship of God and how he has blessed the Nation with peace and unity.
He says at national level, a church service will be held at the Show Grounds in Lusaka starting at 09:00 Hours to which members of the public are invited.
Mr. CHIKOTE says the service will also bring together leaders at various levels and persuasions including religious communities in collective prayer and thanksgiving on how the Lord has kept the nation.
He says the day will also provide an opportunity for the nation to seek God’s divine intervention and guidance in building the nation.
Mr. CHIKOTE says the event will be replicated at provincial and district levels, where Zambians from all walks of life are expected to gather in various places to commemorate the important day.
On 18th October, 2023, Zambia will commemorate the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance, and Reconciliation under the theme: “Building Zambia for Greater Development through Prayer, Unity and Hard Work.
