Then on Sunday February 11, at 5pm there will be Deliverance Prayer Service that is scheduled to be at the Leeward Bus Terminal.

According to members of the Ministry, the eight-day crusade will be an intense period of supplication and intercession which would include praying for the peace and security of Vincentians against the increasing murder rate. There will also be prayer for the spiritual and moral revival of families, communities and the nation, and prayer for the economic growth and prosperity of the nation. The crusade will also include urging believers to deepen their personal prayer life.
