BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, March 18, 2019 (PLP PR Media Inc.) — After holding a successful National Convention at the Patsy Allers Playfield on Saturday March 16, the executive and general membership of the Peoples Labour Party (PLP) led by the National Political Leader, Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris, on Sunday worshipped at the Rivers of Living Water Christian Centre in Lime Kiln West Basseterre.
The PLP team, which included the Deputy National Political Leader Senator the Hon Akilah Byron-Nisbett and the Planning Committee of the West Basseterre PLP Branch Executive, was welcomed to the Sunday worship service by Apostle Dr Allan Isaac, Prophetess Debbie Isaac, and the general membership.
Prophetess Isaac invited Prime Minister Harris to the front to pray for him saying that “the Word of God says that we are to pray for our kings and our presidents, and those who have authority and lead so that we will live a peaceful and a godly life.”
She told the congregation that when she travels overseas and people out there learn that leaders in St. Kitts and Nevis are coming to church, they tell her that all in the Federation are blessed. She noted that she would be told by those overseas that they do not see their leaders in years, but to have the leaders in St. Kitts and Nevis come to church and be so humble to even stand for prayer and even come to an altar that is something to give thanks for.
“Father in the mighty name of Jesus, we lift up our leader to You – the leader of this country,” prayed Prophetess Isaac. “Lord Your Word declares that we are to pray for kings and for presidents, and those who take leadership over us.” She added: “Father I thank you for his (Prime Minister Harris) life. I declare over him, Lord God, longevity.”
When the Deputy National Political Leader of the Peoples Labour Party Senator the Hon Akilah Byron-Nisbett, was invited to give remarks she told the congregation that the party had just completed its National Convention and was starting its new year as a new executive.
“Whenever we do that we always seek God’s guidance – we always come in to thank Him for the year past and seek His guidance for the year ahead,” said the Hon Byron-Nisbett. “And there is one thing we have always been known for in the Peoples Labour Party and that is to give God praise, honour and glory. Some people say that we are a political party that is kind of bordering a church because in everything we do we always give God praise.”
Also in congregation were Ambassador His Excellency Michael Powell, and Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister Mr Osbert DeSuza.
Apostle Dr Allan Isaac who delivered the sermon under the theme ‘Overflowing yourself into the world around you’ at the end of the sermon made an altar call, which was heeded by a majority of those present in the church including Prime Minister Harris, Senator Byron-Nisbett and Ambassador Powell. The three stood side by side prompting Apostle Dr Isaac to remark that the country has good succession planning, “because you are looking at the previous generation (Powell), passed on to the next generation (Harris), to be passed on to the next generation (Byron-Nisbett).”
