Adventist 24-hour prayerthon starts today

Published:Friday | July 22, 2011 | 12:00 AM

Sensing the need for a revival of sincere and penitent prayer in the society, the leadership and members of the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (CJC) will today go on a 24-hour prayerthon.

The conference said in a release yesterday that it would transform its current board room into a temporary studio to facilitate the hundreds of callers and presenters to its headquarters at 58 Brunswick Avenue in Spanish Town, St Catherine. The programme will start at 8 p.m. and end at approximately 7 p.m. tomorrow.

"I believe that the time has come for us as a Church and nation to stop talking to man and connect with God," said Pastor Levi Johnson, president of the Adventist Central Region. "We want to use the mass media to take this programme of prayer and praise not only to the Church's membership, but also persons in Jamaica and the wider world who have lost hope due to the various challenges of life."

The programme, which also includes praise and worship, prayer concerts, the reading of God's Holy word, and preaching, will be carried live on NCU Radio on FM channels 91.1 and 91.3 and NCU TV. It will also be webcast live at www.centralja.com.
