Praying for better days
SANTA CRUZ, St Elizabeth — Governor General Sir Patrick Allen was among worshippers at the annual National Prayer Vigil held at the Sharon Baptist Church here, recently.
Pastor Jacob Powell said the group had come together to petition God for a "breakthrough", believing that what is wrong with Jamaica can be fixed by what is right with Jamaica.
"Since we are calling on our God, I believe that our best days are yet to come," he said.
There was a moment of silence to mark the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela, icon of the anti- apartheid movement.
The prayer vigil bearing the theme 'Justice, Unity, Peace and Healing' was hosted by the St Elizabeth Ministers Fraternal.
Vigil organisers said offering was taken in aid of the St Elizabeth Infirmary and the Black River Hospital.
