In a previous interview with this media house, James explained that the call to repentance was received by a member of the group who explained that he was spoken to by the Lord. She said she felt that the day of repentance was important, because throughout the bible, people repented and turned from their wicked ways and were spared the wrath of God.
The highlight of the exercise was – at the Independence Square – where collective and individual prayers were offered to the Lord, on behalf of St. Kitts and Nevis, between midday and 1:00 pm on Wednesday (10th November).
One of the attendees, Her Worship Josephine Mallelieu Webbe, in an interview with MiyVue, said the session was a blessing for her.
“Today was really a blessing and we thank God for his presence with us and we will continue to pray for our nation and for the church in this nation to rise up and really do its part. We thank God for all those who continue to pray for the nation.”
NIN’s coordinator, Leonie James told MiyVue that she is pleased with the outcome of the event.
“I was surprised at the number of persons who were here. It’s not many but you don’t get a lot of people coming to these things. It was a great mix. We had people from different denominations and persuasions according to their faith and I believe that God did a wonderful thing and brought those who were to be here. And as you saw, those who were here really put their hearts into it and I think we just need to give God the praise, the honour and the glory.
“It felt a little lonely at first because we waited and people took a bit long to come but I was really pleased and the tempo went up and the Holy Spirit was here and I am sure that we are going to be rewarded.”
