POSTED: 01/15/13 12:59 PM

St. Maarten – Governor Drs. Eugène Holiday, Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams, and Public Health Minister Cornelius de Weever joined other members of the Council of Ministers and the Council of Churches, the United Ministerial foundation and the Seventh Day Adventist community on Sunday at the Clem Labega Square for the national day of prayer.

The ecumenical service began at 4.30 p.m. and included addresses by reverend Stephane Brooks, pastors Royston Philbert and Wycliffe Smith and apostle E. Allen.

The Prime Minister addressed the gathering on behalf of government and urged the community to observe good Christian practices. 
”I urge all to keep praying for this country and to realize how blessed we actually are to be here on St. Maarten,” Wescot-Williams said.

Minister Cornelius de Weever spoke on behalf of Culture Minister Silveria Jacobs who was not able to attend. “I am blessed to have had a mother who loved her children more than herself and that for me will never change. That is called unconditional love. The Bible speaks of Agape love that has given me the courage to face the challenges of life, was Jacobs’ message to the gathering. The Christian Fellowship Choir performed at the event.
