Prayers for DPPrayers were also offered upfor deputy Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and all the other Members of Parliament. Evangelist Courtney Selman of Prayer Warriors International Foundation has invited persons to visit Prayer Warriors website at www.primeministersprayerteam.org  where you can email your prayer request for the Prime Minister, which should consist of no more than 100 words.
