THE nation’s leaders will come together and pray for more love among Jamaicans when they meet for the 33rd annual National Leadership Prayer Breakfast (NLPB) on January 17.
The theme for this year’s breakfast is: ‘Love That Transforms’, and Chairman of the NLPB Committee, Rev. Dr. Peter Garth, said the event presents an opportunity to bring a message of peace and hope to the nation early in the new year.
Addressing a press briefing at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel last week, Garth said for 2013, the prayer breakfast is about asking people “to love sincerely, to love selflessly and to love sacrificially”.
He pointed out that there is a serious link between ‘lovelessness’ and lawlessness and posited the belief that love can change Jamaica.
“We believe that if we can bring love back into our offices, our homes and various places in Jamaica, the worship place, the workplace and the dwelling place, that we will see remarkable changes in Jamaica,” Rev. Dr. Garth said.
The National Leadership Prayer Breakfast began 33 years ago with a purpose to foster greater unity in the nation, particularly among the nation’s leaders at all levels. This year, it will receive sponsorship support from Victoria Mutual Building Society for the 28th time in its history.
