Annual National Day of Prayer 2021 goes virtual, with theme “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done”

The Government of Sint Maarten in collaboration with the St. Maarten Christian Council, St. Maarten United Ministerial Foundation and the Seventh Day Adventist Church will host the annual National Day of Prayer. The annual event is held on the second Sunday in January, which falls on, January 10th 2021.

This year’s event with the theme “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done” will be a virtual video presentation due to the ongoing COVID-19 protocols that discourages large social gatherings. The public is encouraged to view the service by tuning in live on the Government of St. Maarten’s Facebook page and YouTube Channel on January 10th 2021 at 5:00 p.m. It will also be broadcasted on St. Maarten Cable TV Channel 115 at 8:00 p.m. on the same evening.

Every year, the Government of St. Maarten invites the entire Sint Maarten community to pray and worship at the National Day of Prayer at the Government Administration Building. The National Day of Prayer was decreed in 2005 by the Executive Council of the Island Territory of Sint Maarten and serves as an ecumenical service for persons of all faiths and religions to pray for a prosperous and healthy new year for the nation.

This virtual event was recorded at the Seventh Day Adventist Church and Heaven’s Touch International Ministries and includes praise and worship, remarks by the Honorable Prime Minister Silveria Jacobs, Honorable Minister of Education Culture Youth & Sport drs. Rodolphe Samuel, songs, prayers and much more. We look forward to hosting a successful virtual event and we thank our collaborators for their invaluable contributions.
