The annual National Prayer Breakfast organised by Christian Legislators Fellowship (CLF) will hold on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at the International Conference Centre in Abuja and President Muhammadu Buhari along with the leadership of the National Assembly led by the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, is expected to grace the event.
President of the CLF, Senator Barnabas Gemade, made the disclosure on Thursday during a press briefing on the forthcoming 2016 National Prayer Breakfast themed “Tree and its fruits: Is yours a blessing or a curse to Nigeria”.
Gemade said this year’s event, which is slated for 7am, is quiet significant being the 7th of its kind, adding that the “number seven in spiritual reckoning stands for perfection. Hence we intend to offer prayers to God to perfect all that concern us as a nation and usher us into a new beginning in this season.”
He noted that the National Prayer Breakfast is a world known event and a non-denominational gathering for Christians to honour and praise God, saying that the Fellowship’s motivation was to inspire righteousness and godliness in leadership.
“A cherished opportunity that reminds us that no matter how much responsibility we have or how fancy our titles or how much power we think we hold, we are imperfect vessels. In a chaotic world with various challenges, crisis situations, hard struggles and sufferings, we need God.
“The National Prayer Breakfast builds bridges of unity and engenders harmony and progress,” Gemade added.
Meanwhile, also expected at the event are Ministers of the Federal Republic; members of the National Assembly; Diplomatic Corps; political, religious and economic leaders in the country.
