Easter 2020 declared National Days of Prayer

BELIZE CITY, Sun. Apr. 5, 2020– The Easter week has this year been declared National Days of Prayers in view of the ravaging effects of the deadly COVID-19 virus that is causing death and havoc globally.

A curfew and a State of Emergency have been enacted to combat the spread of the deadly disease, and in light of the dire circumstances, the nation is urged to pray.

The designation of the Easter period as the National Days of Prayers was declared by Prime Minister Dean Barrow today. This period of prayers and fasting will start on Good Friday, April 10, and will continue through Holy Saturday, April 11, and Easter Sunday, April 12.

The Council of Churches will lead the nation in prayer over the three days. The prayers will be broadcast on television and will also be live streamed from 6:00 Friday morning to 6:00 Sunday evening.

The Council of Churches announced that the themes of the National Days of Prayers are: Repentance on Good Friday, Redemption on Holy Saturday, and Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

A schedule of the televised prayers will be made available to the public on Wednesday. The nation is encouraged to pray.
