Prayer Warriors set sights on South Coast

THE SOUTH COAST SEWERAGE PROJECT could be in for divine intervention if the island’s Prayer Warriors have their way.

They will be setting their sights and prayers at the problem-plagued project, which has been spewing out raw sewage into the streets of St Lawrence, Hastings and Worthing, Christ Church, for about a year.

Word of this has come from Pastor Courtney Selman, who was speaking at the annual Day of Prayer 15th anniversary church service at the Power in the Blood Assembly on Sunday.

“I got a call [Sunday] morning at 4 a.m. requesting that we go to Christ Church south and offer prayers for the sewage problems there,” he told the congregation.

“So I will mobilise a team to address the matter in the next few days,” he said.

His comments came as he highlighted the success Prayer Warriors had in solving some of the issues that had been plaguing society.

“We at Prayer Warriors aspire to scratch where it itches in our communities,” he declared.

So when there were problems at the Alexandra School, they prayed and “the matter was quickly resolved”.

The Warriors launched a Buckle-Up prayer CD, and road accidents were drastically reduced “as fate would have it”.

“When we had the acute water shortage in St Joseph, St Andrew, St Thomas and St Peter last year, we visited the [Barbados] Water Authority building in the Pine on two occasions and prayed for the management and staff.

“We also visited the affected parishes, made prayer stops and distributed water. In a matter of two weeks the rain came tumbling down from Heaven,” Selman said.

He added Christians fed the hungry, provided for the thirsty, visited the sick, the shut-ins, the seniors and the prisoners. He said the church could cut the food bill of its members by at least 30 per cent.

“I say this cautiously and with love: to the church I urge, or challenge you, to get off your knees and your comfortable Bs – meaning benches – and take the good news of the salvation and transformation and take along some food and drink to the communities,” he declared.

Selman suggested members could submit a certain amount of money each month, which would go towards groceries to be distributed among those who contributed. (HLE)
