(mylbsonline.com/Liberia)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is calling on Liberians to forget the past and forge ahead for peace and National Reconciliation.

President Johnson-Sirleaf said: “In the absence of peace and national reconciliation, it becomes difficult to achieve national growth and reconstruction.”

She praised the Almighty God for the years of peace, noting: “Only by His mercy Liberians are celebrating ten years of peace.”

The Liberian Leader called on her compatriots to keep praying to the Lord for wisdom in keeping the peace.

The Liberian President spoke Sunday, August 18, 2013 at the St. Peters Lutheran Church in Sinkor, during thanksgiving and intercessory service for the years peace has reigned in the country.

Delivering the sermon, the Bishop of the St. Peters Lutheran Church, Rev. Dr. Jensen Seyekulo, recounted the ugly past of the civil war and reminded Liberians that Liberia is the only country they have.

Speaking on the theme, “The Peace That We Have,’ Rev. Dr. Seyekulo called on Liberians to continuously pray and take the necessary actions for the sustenance of peace in the country.

Liberians are celebrating 10 years of sustained peace as a result of the Comprehensive Peace Accord signed in Accra, Ghana on August 18, 2003.
