Moscow National Prayer Breakfast: Everybody spoke about Christ
Sergey Ryakhovsky, Senior Bishop of the Russian Union of Christians of Evangelical Faith, shared that almost all participants of the National Prayer Breakfast, which was held in Moscow on March 17, spoke about Christ, reports The Christian Telegraph.
“It is very important, when there is a figure, which people can rally to: politicians, representatives of royalty, journalists, clergy, they can all rally to one person – Jesus Christ. When we hear from people, who are not clergymen, sermons, which not every priest can make, it becomes obvious, that neither Europe, nor Russia, is lost for God,” the press center of the union cited the minister.
“There is a lot of work ahead; we should have to return our nations to real, sincere, not formal, Christianity. Today, the Prayer Breakfast has been filled with Jesus Christ, and this is the most important. The other things are secondary. Nobody has shown their ambitions. People have just said that neither Europe, nor Russia, can exist without Christ and Christianity,” the Bishop added.
The 15th National Prayer Breakfast was held in the President Hotel under the motto “Blessed are the peacemakers”. The guests included representatives from the Administration of the President, the Federation Council, the State Duma, the Civic Chamber, Orthodox, Islam, Judaism leaders, representatives of the royalty from Belgium and a representative from the German government.
