Proudly Zambian: Our National Prayer

Proudly Zambia

As we build up to our 51st independence anniversary I have thought it right to share posts that reflect on the true Zambian spirit-based on our symbols of national identity and other related concepts.

Today we look at the national prayer. The Zambian story is incomplete without the mention of God. From the very start God was placed at the center. On 25th of October 1964 our forefathers recited a prayer for Zambia at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. It is quite a short prayer, but one that has a lot of meaning.

“O GOD THE FATHER OF ALL MANKIND, WE BESEECH THEE SO TO INSPIRE THE PEOPLE OF THIS LAND, WITH THE SPIRIT OF JUSTICE, TRUTH AND LOVE, THAT IN ALL OUR DEALINGS ONE WITH ANOTHER WE MAY SHOW FORTH OUR BROTHERHOOD IN THEE FOR THE SAKE OF JESUS OUR LORD. AMEN.”

Justice, Truth, Love and Brotherhood: our forefathers envisioned a Zambia builded on these values. May we uphold them in our lives as individuals and as a nation. May we uphold these values in all our dealings one with another. When we do so we will be creating a Zambia that we will be proud to call home. God bless Zambia. God bless our motherland.
