President, Dr Lazarus Chakwera says the national day of prayer held today at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe is important because it unites Malawians.
“I joined Malawians in observing this year’s National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving, at an interdenominational service of worship held at the Bingu International Conference Centre,”
“The National Day of Prayer is a fundamental calendar occasion that esteems freedom of worship, promotes unity and reminds us of the foundations on which this country was birthed,” Chakwera wrote on his official Facebook page.
The president has asked Malawians to always seek God’s help for the country to develop.
“It is therefore of great significance for this nation to continue seeking God’s wisdom in actualising our socioeconomic development agenda,” he said.
Chakwera added that,”I continue pleading with you to deeply remember where this nation is coming from, reflect on what we can do better presently and recast hope for ourselves and future generations.”
The national day of prayer was attended by government officials and religious leaders among others under the theme,” Malawi be strong and take heart. God is our refuge and fortress.”
