George Nooks and Stitchie urge Christians to pray for Jamaica
WHILST performing at the Oraclez Gospel music festival in London on Bank Holiday Monday, reggae singers George Nooks and Stitchie urged British Christians to pray for Jamaica. Commenting on the recent violent outburst that has left parts of Jamaica under a State Of Emergency, Nooks said, "The situation's not pretty. But they do say a calm follows a storm - and what we're praying for right now is calm."
Stitchie also asked British Christians to pray for Jamaica. But he also added that some of the media coverage of the unrest had been exaggerated. "I know that people have been hearing a lot of things about Jamaica over the past couple of weeks. But it's just a tiny fraction of one section of Kingston where all these upheavals are happening; Western Kingston, to be specific. The rest of Jamaica is fine. To all those who are scared because of what they've been hearing on the news, I say don't be. But this is a wake-up call that we all need to be praying more meaningfully for lives to be transformed."The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
