Since settlement in 1627, Barbados has been Christian. But despite overwhelming religious profession and a large number of evangelicals, real commitment to the lordship of Jesus is the exception rather than the rule. Materialism, spreading theological liberalism, decreasing church attendance, increased violence and crime are all symptoms of spiritual decline. Pray for the Spirits renewal and for the Church in Barbados to reawaken.
The Church needs Gods intervention. While unity is growing, there is still some mistrust among denominational leaders, particularly between the established denominations and the many fast-growing independent churches and congregations. Pray for a genuine commitment to fellowship and prayer by those in Christian ministry. Pray for the Barbados Evangelical Association and Barbados Christian Council, which seek to provide the platform for this.
