The National Day of Prayer that was set to take place today in Durban has been postponed to a later date.
The National Day of Prayer and Launch of Africa Month was to be addressed by President Jacob Zuma with religious leaders leading prayers for unity, peace, the rain, successful local government elections and peaceful co-existence.
A spokesperson for the KwaZulu-Natal premier, Ndabezinhle Sibiya, says a new date for the prayer day will be announced soon.
“We can confirm that the prayer has been postponed and we are calling upon the people of KwaZulu-Natal from across all corners of the province to continue to pray for peace and for a prosperous province. The new date for the provincial prayer will be announced and we can confirm that the premier will be meeting with religious leaders at the Diakonia Council of Churches today.”
