The Barbados District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies has accepted the request to use Monday, June 1, as a day of fasting and prayer for our children and youth, and invites all Christians in Barbados to participate.
As a nation we have some incredible young people excelling in such diverse areas as academics, sports and culture. We commend and celebrate them.
At the same time there are negative forces that are drawing some of our youth into the evil of such things as drug and chemical abuse, unrestrained sexual promiscuity and violence.
While the debate over the cons (it is really difficult to find pros) of the Charlie Charlie Challenge will continue, it remains a reality that a rumour can circumnavigate the globe before the truth gets its shoes on. Caution is therefore necessary as we seek to understand this phenomenon.
PAWI has invited all Christians to use Monday coming as a day to focus prayer on our children and youth.
“Fast if you can. If medical realities make fasting impractical, use a partial fast,” says PAWI. “Above all, pray!”
