Prime Minister, Hon. Bruce Golding, says that God is moving Jamaica in a positive direction and has called on the church community to continue to pray for the country.
“I believe that we are at a turning point and at a tipping point, and I believe that the direction in which God is directing this country is a direction for good and a direction for righteousness.
“It is He who leads and captains this ship. I ask you in all your doings, in all your worship and ministry and prayerful works, and in the fervent prayers that I know you send up, I ask you always to pray for this land that we love so much,” the Prime Minister urged.

He was addressing the congregation at the Water Lane New Testament Church of God in Montego Bay, St. James, where he worshipped on Sunday (June 18).
Pastor of the Church, Rev. Clement Clarke, assured the Prime Minister that the congregation is in constant prayer for the country and its leaders.
He said that with trust and belief in God, Jamaica can overcome all challenges. “There are many among us who are at the point of giving up . I urge you not to give up. Still trust in God because He will bring it to pass. Whatever you are going through, it will not be long, God is not yet finished with you. He will soon come to your rescue, He will see you through,” Rev. Clarke stated.
The church service was among a number of events attended by the Prime Minister during a visit to St. James last weekend.
Others in attendance were Minister of Tourism and Member of Parliament for East Central St. James, Hon. Edmund Bartlett; Minister of Water and Housing and Member of Parliament for North West St. James, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang; and Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Local Government Reform, Hon. Robert Montague.
