The National House of Prayer is going to be Zambia’s highest altar of God which should not be abandoned and the new dawn should therefore build on the foundation laid by the previous government, Archbishop Peter Ndlovu has said.

Archbishop Ndhlovu says the National House of Prayer is a non-political altar of the nation and the anchor of Zambia as a Christian nation symbolic of the Christian norms and values that have kept the country a God-fearing nation.

Archbishop Ndhlovu, the Bible Gospel Church in Africa (BIGOCA) Overseer has appealed to the UPND government to consider carrying on with the project of completing the construction of the National House of Prayer because the building would be for all Zambians irrespective of their house of worship they were affiliated to.

He said governments come and go but that the Word of God shall be with man forever and that the UPND government should not abandon the project as the House of Prayer would have to speak for the governing party long after it would have left power.

Archbishop Ndhlovu said Zambia did not have a Church that would be called a National House of Prayer that would be accessed by all citizens, politicians and different churches for their national ecclesiastical functions.

“The National House of Prayer is non-political and is the altar for the nation, which every Zambian, including politicians and the general citizenry shall gather and worship God the Lord. It is the highest altar that should be respected. Governments come and go and it is my appeal to the UPND government to carry on and build on the foundation laid by the previous government. The National House of Prayer should not be abandoned because it is the anchor of Zambia as a Christian nation. As Zambians, we must value the National House of Prayer as some we have that is symbolic and brings Christians together,” Archbishop Ndhlovu said.

Archbishop Ndhlovu said his earnest appeal to the new dawn government was that it should put politics off the National House of Prayer because the building would be a legacy that would speak for the current leadership long after it would be gone. 

He explained that by building the National House of Prayer, the UPND government would be honouring God and appealed to the Infrastructure Minister Charles Milupi to impress upon government and complete the construction.

“Should the new dawn complete the construction of the National House of Prayer, it shall speak for them for many years to come,” Archbishop Ndhlovu said.
