Occasion was yesterday’s launch of the annual Prayer Breakfast at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston.
Campbell, in his sponsor’s remarks, said people should not underestimate the importance of praying for our leaders and praying with them.
“The reality is, leadership can be a stressful responsibility and it can be a difficult and lonely journey,” Campbell said. “It can only redound to our benefit when all leaders are able to unite in prayer, recognising that there is a natural partnership that needs to be fostered for the common good.”
The prayer breakfast, now in its 37th year, is scheduled for January 19. It is being held under the theme ‘God-empowered intervention for transformation — Praying for our leaders, praying with our leaders’.
