By DELPHINE ZULU –
THE proclamation of the National Day of Repentance, Fasting and Prayer has revived the spirit of the ‘One Zambia, One Nation’ motto, Zambia’s Charge d’ Affaires and deputy head of mission at the Zambian embassy in Ethiopia, Amos Musonda has said.
Mr Musonda said the commemoration of the day has opened doors for national healing, love and unity.
Speaking yesterday when he led scores of Zambians living in Ethiopia in observing the event, Mr Musonda said the proclamation had provided an opportunity for individuals, families and the country as a whole to come closer to God and converse with Him through prayer.
He said as a Christian nation, Zambia would continue being prosperous and unified, as it had always acknowledged the superiority and sovereignty of God.
In a Statement issued by first secretary for press, Naomi Chulu, Mr Musonda said the principles and values which bound Zambians together were stronger than the things which divided them, therefore, Zambia would continue enjoying peace, unity and love.
He urged Zambians at home and abroad, to build on the philosophy of the ‘One Zambia, One Nation’, for a better country through ensuring that love and compassion became a guiding principle in their daily lives.
He also thanked President Edgar Lungu for the proclamation, stating that it could not have been done at a better time than now.
Shepard Ministries International Church overseer Grace Malenga led the congregants to pray for the nation and leaders.
Dr Malenga who quoted Leviticus 26, asked the church members to pray to God to heal the land and release blessings on mother Zambia.
