The Office of the Prime Minister is partnering with Faith Based Organisations around the island to observe December 13th, 2010 as the National Day of Prayer under the theme: “A NATION INSPIRED BY HOPE UNITED IN PRAYER”. The entire nation is invited on that day to set aside time to pray for the people whose lives have been affected as a result of the devastating events related to the passage of Hurricane Tomas on October 29th, and 30th, 2010. The Day of Prayer is meant as a time for national reflection on our individual lives and our Country as we seek the Lord’s intervention and deliverance in the process of recovery and rebuilding.

Hurricane Tomas has left behind physical, social and psychological scars, which has impacted the landscape and people of our beautiful Island. The wrath of nature has left many with varying degrees of anguish and despair. The Hurricane has however, rekindled our cherished values of caring, sharing, community spirit and reaching out to those in need. Most of all it has presented us with challenges, which test our resilience and determination as a people. The National Day of Prayer presents us with a collective opportunity to give praise and gratitude to God the Most High for deliverance from the devastation of Hurricane Tomas. On Him we have set our hopes that He will continue pour his blessings upon our wonderful nation. The public are all invited to participate in the two scheduled events for the day as we pray humbly as ONE UNITED NATION.National Day of Prayer 2010 May 6 : Regardless of Controversies the National Day of Prayer Proceeds : Pictures News Photos Updates Latest : wiki
