Prayer Vigil Marathon kicks off Friday in Port of Spain

Cedros Peninsula United [CPU] and the Chatham/Cap-de-ville Environmental Protection Group [CCEPG], in conjunction with a host of other civic organizations throughout Trinidad and Tobago, will be initiating a Prayer Vigil Marathon on Friday 21st April 2006.

We shall be assembling at the All Saints Church on Marli Street around the Savannah and opposite the US Embassy from 5pm. to commence an Inter Faith Service at 5.30pm to 6.30 pm. We shall then proceed in a religious candle light procession around the Savannah to White Hall, where we shall hand over the prayer baton – a prayer for national redemption - to community organizations to take back to their respective communities.

It is expected that these communities shall host a prayer vigil in their own community or wherever they deem fit, no later than one week thereafter and then hand over the baton to other communities, the idea being to involve as many communities throughout the land.

National consensus is that a spiritual rebirth throughout the land and at all levels of society is necessary for national redemption.

Now, more than ever, there is need for reflection and introspection … to assess our achievements and failures as a people; to identify where we lost our way and what we collectively have to do as one whole, single and indivisible people … across ethnic, religious, political and economic lines to fulfil the true destiny of this blessed country and people.

We ask you, the people of Trinidad and Tobago to come out and support as well as to actively participate in this initiative.

We also ask that you at least wear a white top and to bring along a candle and candle cup.
