Trin­ity Lutheran Church Hosts Prayer Vigil

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 18th Trin­ity Lutheran Church in Bisee will host a prayer vigil for Saint Lu­cia be­gin­ning at 6:00 a.m. and fin­ish­ing at 10:00 p.m. All are wel­come. Friends and staff of Trin­ity Lutheran Church will gather ev­ery hour on the hour for 15 min­utes to pray for the na­tion and their com­mu­ni­ties. They are ask­ing the pub­lic to join them at any time dur­ing the day.

“I think some­times we, as or­di­nary cit­i­zens, feel an over­whelm­ing sense of help­less­ness when it comes to the ran­dom acts of vi­o­lence and hard times that the coun­try is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing,” said Pas­tor Tom Spiegel­berg. “James says in chap­ter five, ‘There­fore con­fess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a right­eous per­son is pow­er­ful and ef­fec­tive.’ We want to use this op­por­tu­nity to con­fess our sins and pray pow­er­fully for our na­tion.”

Toosheena Mi­choo, teacher at TLC Early Child­hood De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre, a min­istry of Trin­ity Lutheran Church, re­cently re­ceived her Saint Lu­cian cit­i­zen­ship. “God has a lot to say about be­ing a Chris­tian and a ci­ti­zen in a coun­try. We want to get in­volved in the Na­tional Day ac­tiv­i­ties so we can help chil­dren and adults be guided as Chris­tians and cit­i­zens of Saint Lu­cia.”

Trin­ity Lutheran Church will also host Lent ser­vices lead­ing up to Easter on Wed­nes­day night at 6:30 p.m. In ad­di­tion, TLC Early Child­hood De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre will have a Na­tional Day Ser­vice at 9:30 a.m. on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 19th. The pub­lic is en­cour­aged to at­tend any or all of the ac­tiv­i­ties.

Trin­ity is spon­sor­ing this ac­tiv­ity with the en­cour­age­ment of the Min­istry of So­cial Trans­for­ma­tion. The Min­istry has planned a Na­tional Day of Prayer and Re-Ded­i­ca­tion for our Peo­ple and Coun­try for Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 19th be­gin­ning 9:30 a.m. at the Mi­nor Basil­ica of the Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion based on the theme “The Jour­ney: What it Means to be St Lu­cian”.

The religious com­mu­nity is in­vited to tune in to the prayer broad­cast on ra­dio and tele­vi­sion ev­ery hour start­ing from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 18th. It has been sug­gested that places of wor­ship should be opened through­out the day to fa­cil­i­tate the pub­lic de­sirous of par­tic­i­pat­ing in cor­po­rate prayer, fast­ing and med­i­ta­tion.
