We all must have faith
Hello to the Honourable David Thompson and all readers, praise the Lord.
I wish to preface this submission with a story.
The story is told of a country that was experiencing a bout of severe drought; so the spiritual leader got all the people in the village together for prayer.
They were invited to go to the highest point in the country and pray for rain.
The spiritual leader asked everyone to bring along something in his or her hand. They all took along crosses, rabbit feet, horse shoes, ears of corn, rosaries, bibles, oils and different items.
But, there was one little girl who took along an umbrella. To my mind she exercised real genuine faith. She believed that rain was going to fall, and it did.
Mr Prime Minister and my fellow Barbadians, may I reaspectfully ask of you, not to engage your mind in any modicum of fear or doubt. Please remove from your thoughts for now, the polls that said, “who is next in line to take over,” and so on.
Let us please pray with supplication, believing that God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. Even God said that He wishes that we prosper and in health.
Of course it’s His will. I wish to remind you that God is almighty, omnicient and omnipotent. The things that are impossible with man/woman (doctors) are possible with God.
Mr Prime Minister, I left Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon, September 18, and travelled to 168th street in New York, armed with my anointing oil to anoint you, of course, subject to your approval; however, I was not able to see you, but deep down in the recesses of my mind, I mentally believed that I anointed you.
For those of you who are not aware of this “God inspired exercise”, it says, recorded in the book of James 5:14–15 “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”
I wish to also take this opportunity to invite persons to visit the website we started three years ago praying for prime ministers in the Caribbean at primeministersprayerteam.org You will see the many prayers (knee-mails) sent for our Prime Minister.
I wish to invite you to also email your prayer, and I will have it posted on the website. And always remember that “Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible.”
