DUFFS BOTTOM, Tortola, VI- The New Life Baptist Church in Duffs Bottom is set on covering all the major islands of the Virgin Islands by year end with its latest Prayer Walk initiative.

The Prayer Walk, which entails walking from one point of the island to the next in prayer, thanksgiving, and meditation, commenced on Saturday August 6, 2016 on Tortola, beginning from West End and culminating at Beef Island. More than 50 persons from different denominations joined in the walk.

The next Prayer Walk will take place on Virgin Gorda, then Jost Van Dyke and finally Anegada and plans are being put in place with the other pastors of churches on these islands to finalise a date, which is scheduled to be before the end of 2016.

The leader of the New Life Baptist Church, Pastor Claude O. Skelton-Cline said the aim is to re-claim the territory to God.

“As we heard it from God, every step we take we believe that we are re-establishing and re-claiming territory. No space, no people, should be untouched. So we are re-establishing our rightful role in this territory and we thank God for using us, we are humbled, to be used by God.”

    Some of us dont reach out to God until things are not going in our favour....the word on the street recently is the UK coming and looking desperately at our financial service sector; ALL of a sudden some of us falling to our knees and full of prayer....prayer is awesome but dont wait until you are in problems to cry out to God(that's hysterical)...all these years when the cash was flowing no prayer; all these years when the leader wasting our tax money no prayer!!!!!

      Prayer is like masturbation, it feels good to the person doing it but does nothing to the person/scenario thats being thought about.

    God! Help us! Make this activity reap success, in Jesus name. Also, please bless the negative and bitter bloggers and make life become more meaningful for them that they may turn to you and join those who pray for success.
