THERE WILL BE a two-hour interdenominational prayer service on Sunday for ailing Prime Minister David Thompson.Several church leaders will pray at the Nazarene Church in Collymore Rock for Thompson, Barbados’ sixth Prime Minister, who has taken a two-month leave of office due to medical concerns that could lead to major surgery.Coordinator of the service, Senator Reverend Dr David Durant, told the DAILY NATION that all parliamentarians had been invited to the event that starts at 6 p.m. “Thompson is an oustanding citizen and the leader of the nation. This country needs to rally around him at this critical juncture,” Durant said.He added that he was pleased with the response from denominational and independent church leaders.Church leaders include bishops Wesley Dear of New Life Teaching Centre, Marlon Husbands of Sanctuary Empowerment Centre, Othneil Forde of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies, and Martin Brewster of the New Testament Church.Reverend Dr Lucille Baird of Mount Zion Mission and Apostle Stephen Holford of New Dimension Ministries are also involved in the prayer session which is likely to be broadcast live.“It is time for the nation to unite and heal in the present situation that confronts us. I am hoping Mr Thompson makes a speedy recovery.“We know that God is able to do the impossible. As the nation unites in prayer, we know that God will intervene and show forth his divine mercy and grace,” Durant said. (MK)
