National Prayer Vigil for Annotto Bay Baptist Church December 11

Plans are in high gear for the 30th staging of the National Prayer Vigil, which will take place at the Annotto Bay Baptist Church, St Mary, on Sunday, December 11 starting at 6:00 pm.

The theme for this year’s vigil is “Justice, Unity, Peace and Healing”. The guest preacher will be the Reverend Claude Williams, pastor of the Oracabessa Baptist Church. The St Mary Ministers’ Fraternal will be the hosts of this year’s event.

The three-hour vigil will comprise praise and worship, prayers of thanksgiving and intercession. Prayer vigil patron, Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Opposition Leader Mark Golding are expected to deliver messages and present scripture readings.

The proceeds from donations will go toward the parish project, which will be the refurbishing of the computer laboratory and resource centre at the Baxter’s Mountain Primary School in St Mary. New computers will also be presented to the school.

The first national prayer vigil took place at King’s House in 1991. The vigil is intended to lead the nation in prayer for justice, peace, unity and spiritual healing.
