Speaking in a sermon, Kasama’s Saint John’s Parish Priest, Gervas Nonde, said he was happy that people responded to President Edgar Lungu’s declaration of national day of prayers.
Fr Node stated that it would be therefore important that people become extra hard working as depending on prayers alone can make others start misinterpreting the work God.
He said people should put it in mind that God helps those who help themselves, hence the need for Christians to avoid the spirit of laziness.
The clergy observed that prayers can be done every day but without personal commitment everything would be meaningless.
Fr Nonde added that after national prayers some people have become reluctant thinking God will provide everything for them even if they do not work.
