Let us pray against crime and violence, against illegal drug trade, against witchcraft and obeah, against the spirit of disunity,” Bishop Daniel said.Bishop Daniel says it is because of God’s favour that we confident, secured and are able to face challenges, and offered three guidelines to be used during the National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving.“As a result of God’s favour we are stronger, we are more confident, we are secured and we are encouraged to face our challenges with greater assurances and increased measure of favour. As we engage in this National Day of Prayer this weekend, may we be guided by three basic principles of prayer; God’s purpose is more important than our plans, God has placed his word even above himself, God will never violate or break his word and God’s holiness is the foundation of his integrity and faithfulness.”Bishop Daniel further declared God’s blessings on the country, its inhabitants and that his peace remains with us.“I declare blessings on the nation Dominica and its inhabitants, I declare prosperity and favour for the nation Dominica and may the peace of God continue to be with us as we continue to serve the Lord.”In 2009, the government acceded to a request made by the Dominica Christian Council to re-schedule the National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving from Sunday before the November 3rd to the beginning of the Independence celebrations.For the National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving, Members of Cabinet usually attend church services in their constituencies and respective communities.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!last_img
