LETTER: A response to ‘Serpent’s’ prayer call

The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Mr Editor,

Quite recently  I heard Algernon ‘ Serpent’ Watts encouraging all believers to turn their prayers and praises up, because ” This election nar go normal.”

Whilst this call is as admirable as it is noble,  I would like to borrow space in your very widely read outlet to remind ‘ Serpent’ etal that this should be a way of life.

This clarion call should not only be issued in the run-up to an election. Otherwise, it comes across as a means of flattering God in a quest to gain   favour from Him; and He cannot be mocked.

God knows our hearts, so calling for prayers and aligning yourselves with the church  at this time will not cut it.

God is looking for genuine repentance; which members of the United Progressive Party  ( UPP) needs to do.

God is looking for genuine commitment- He is looking for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.

A few years ago God entrusted the running of the affairs of the nation to the UPP,  but that administration compromised- It failed to correct those who abused their office- it failed to acknowledge  God in all things- Of all these shortcomings  that organization must repent.

Who knows? Perhaps God will favour  you again.

( Observing from afar)
