Worship warriors march in City
The City was transformed into an altar of prayer and worship as hundreds of Barbadians participated in the annual March For Jesus, followed by a session called Worship In The City on Saturday.
Men and women, boys and girls, some with signs but all with smiles, braved the evening sun as they started at Independence Square and proceeded along Wharf Road on to the Bridgetown Port where the first set of prayers was offered.
Stops were also made at Fontabelle, St Mary’s Church, Broad Street and Parliament Buildings and back at Independence Square.
Organiser of the event Reverend Patrick Tannis said prayers were asked for God to bless The City, for it to be renewed and refreshed.
Tannis said that during Saturday’s session it rained and more rain is forecast during the week, which will be welcomed given the current drought.
“We see a Barbados that is restored. We know that God has already blessed the country. In days to come we will hear about a turnaround,” a confident Tannis said.
The March for Jesus has been held in Barbados for almost 30 years and is also celebrated in over 100 countries. Churches from all denominations use the Saturday before Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of the church, to celebrate the event. (LK)
