Jamaica needs divine intervention

Published:Friday | September 24, 2021 | 12:05 AM

THE EDITOR, Madam:

The true Church must be given the opportunity to operate again just like in the days of old, so that the fear of God can enter back into this nation.

I must commend Prime Minister Andrew Holness for the good job he has been doing in handling the pandemic thus far, because it is difficult for a leader who has to get advice from different areas and then make a decision for the benefit of a people.

I welcome the lockdown on a Sunday as it is putting back Jamaica in the right direction; however, the Church must be given the opportunity to open and worship and not be compared with any other businesses. Back in the day, when I was much younger, Sundays were more regarded as a holy day, where that day was more reverenced and respected. The fear of God was upon the people and criminals were not so brazen.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach unto any people”. Our forefathers knew this, hence the National Anthem is a prayer for the nation. “Eternal Father bless our land, Guard us with Thy Mighty Hand, Keep us free from evil powers, Be our light through countless hours”. To restore our nation, the true Church must be given the freedom to worship. When the true Church is allowed to worship, divine intervention will fix two things – crime and violence will diminish; and the COVID-19 virus will be vanquished.

Prime Minister, I close by appealing again, let us get back in touch with God. 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”. Our only help is through divine intervention from the true Church.

God bless you.
