Warm greetings to all of you.

I am glad that the prayer breakfast tradition continues, despite the pandemic restrictions.

Even though we are preoccupied by Covid-19, it is right to take a moment to pray for what is most important for our country.

We have a lot to be thankful for.

We are especially grateful that Rwandans, working hand in hand with leaders, have managed to avoid the worst consequences of this disease.

We are thankful for the vaccines that allow us to look forward to a future without Covid, and to rebuilding our economy.

As leaders, this gathering is an opportunity to recommit to our respective missions, while seeking more strength and wisdom to serve our people.

There is no doubt that Rwandans have been seriously affected by this pandemic, especially the most vulnerable among us.

We must go about our duties with a heart for those we serve.

Finally, I hope that today’s prayer event will inspire all of us to raise our collective ambitions for our country.

This will challenge us to do more and do it better, and make up for some of the time we have lost.

That would surely be the best blessing for Rwanda.

I thank you.
