THE ISLAND IS being lifted up in prayer today as some churches have opened their doors to recognise the National Day of Prayer called for by Canon Noel Burke.
Burke who is in charge of the St David’s Anglican Church said his church had been open since 6 a.m. and will remain open for anyone who wishes to pray until 6 p.m. following which there will be a special service.
Burke, the chairman of the 50th anniversary subcommittee on religious events, said the service will be held because today is Ascension Day, but also to offer special prayers for Barbados.
“We thought that one of the things that will be important as we plan all of the events that there will be times for pray and reflection since we hold the view that nothing can be done without prayer,” he said. (LK)
