National Day of prayer to combat crime


Residents are being called upon to engage in a national day of prayer as a measure to address the seeming increase in violent crime, particularly gun crimes.

Bishop Charlesworth Browne, one of the event’s organisers, said the event is scheduled for November 1, Independence Day.

“We are calling the nation to prayer and we are sending out invitations to the various communities, churches, secular leaders and all. We are trying to get a wide cross-section of persons out for this very special prayer event and we are going to seek to spend the entire morning going into the afternoon in special presentations and prayers,” he said.
