OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

PRESIDENT KOROMAíS MESSAGE TO THE NATION FOR A PERIOD OF FASTING FROM TUESDAY 20TH APRIL TO SUNDAY 18TH JULY 2010

At about the same time last year, I made a similar call to this nation. I am again pleased to virtually repeat this messageÖ

In the life of every nation that believes in the divine nature of the Living God, the Holy Spirit moves and stirs up visionaries and prophets or prophetesses to speak to the people as inspired.

The Lord at times calls us to periods of fasting, repentance, and penitence, leading to restoration, reparation and salvation.

At this particular time in Sierra Leone, our people need spiritual restoration more than ever before, our nation needs spiritual revitalization.

In this respect, I am joining the call by the Body of Christ, led by Sister Wisdom Veronica Conteh, for all Sierra Leoneans to devote themselves to a period of prayer and fasting from 20th April to 18th July 2010.

This call is not only limited to ordinary Sierra Leoneans, but I urge all government ministers, chief executives, ,members of parliament, political party leaders, paramount chiefs, councilors and all leaders to take the lead in observing this period of fasting.

We hold the strong belief that God wants to bless Sierra Leone. And it is only appropriate that we open the doors through this special dedication to a national period of fasting.

Remember to pray for love, peace, tranquility and development to take preeminence in Sierra Leone.

I leave you with the words of the Bible in 2 Chronicles 7: 14, "If my people, who are called by my Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Thank you, and God bless Sierra Leone
