Zambia marks National Day of Prayer and Fasting



Zambians at home and abroad are in prayer today as they mark the National Day of Prayer and Fasting which is calling for promoting reconciliation, healing and celebrating unity in diversity this year.

“Today is a very important day in our great Nation. It is the day when we need to humble ourselves as a people and have sincere cries to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He will hear our cry, forgive our sins and heal our land.” President Edgar Lungu posted on his Facebook page as he encouraged citizens to join in

Zambia is holding national prayers second year in running, after President Edgar Lungu declared an annual prayer day that also doubles as a public holiday in the county.

According to Zambia reports the opposition United Party for National Development said that it will not participate in the October 18 Day of National Prayers and Fasting.

Most bars, pubs and public places, including restaurants and fast-food outlets, closed in a spirit to enable members of the public to dedicate their time in passionate prayer and fasting according to Lusaka Times.
