As the country grapples with spiralling crime, the Government yesterday urge the Baptist community to “shout” their prayers for the nation. In its statement to observe Spiritual Shouter Baptist Liberation Day, the Government exhorted the Baptists to “raise their collective voices in prayer for our nation, and in particular for the pockets of our population who seem bent on destroying the hard-earned gains we have made as a country”.
The Government stated if it is true when the praises go up, the blessings come down, then the Baptists were urged to continue to shout their praises “so that the blessings of their God will rain down on us, and wash away all that seeks to keep us shackled in chains of apathy and ignorance”.
