‘Prayer-Warriors’ praying for change
The Prayer-Warriors will be taking their campaign against the importation of illegal guns and drugs into the island’s two main ports and its beaches on March 4, as it continues its annual Caribbean Day of Prayer under the theme ‘March Forth On Our Knees’.
Leader of the Prayer-Warriors, made this announcement this morning while addressing the congregation at the Restoration Ministries on Britton’s Hill, St Michael, as his radio ministry celebrates its 13th anniversary.
Selman said they will be meeting at 8 a.m. at Jubilee Gardens and will be travelling by bus to the island’s ports of entry and selected beaches to make stops and pray.
Arguing that Barbados does not manufacture guns, Selman said they had to be entering the island through its ports of entry and its many beaches.
Stressing that no charge will be imposed for the bus ride, the evangelist said: “Bring your picnic lunch and we will be praying for our families, the crime situation and the illegal drugs and guns situation.”
“We believe that prayer is the most powerful weapon to be used against wrong. It is even stronger than any Prime Minister or President,” Selman argued.
He contended that the current immorality and decadence that appears to be sweeping the country began at home.
“That’s why we have to concentrate on the home and the family. We have to rebuild those family walls [and] those values that existed in the communities before. So that is why I am calling on the church to assist in rebuilding these walls of morality and the family,” Selman contended.
He thanked Eddies Trading and Eddies Supermarket, Grantley Taylor and his wife, and pharmacist Victor Farley who have underwritten the cost of the 15 minute programme carried over 100.7 FM over the past 13 years.
Meanwhile, in his sermon Reverend Dr David Durant cited research which showed that happiness in life does not come from the accumulation of wealth, but from having a good and loving relationship with one’s partner.
Durant, who is a Government Senator said: ” A study which was carried out many years ago showed that persons who are in good loving relationships are less likely to suffer from dementia and Alzheimer ‘s disease in their later life. Good relations with our partners keep us healthy and happy, not money.”
Stressing that God is calling all Barbadians to love each other, the outspoken cleric welcomed the enactment of the Child Abuse Amendment Act and condemned “deviant behavioural practices” such as same sex marriages. (NC)
