As we fight for CHANGE in our Bahamas, let us pray tonight and in the days ahead that the HAND of THE ALMIGHTY will guide our country.

Bahamas Press sends this song to all across the length and breadth of this nation to PRAY FOR CHANGE! THAT GOD WILL RETURN OUR LAND into a season of PLENTY! WHERE WE SHALL GIVE THANKS FOREVER!

To the single mothers, BE STILL. To the unemployed, BE STILL! To the homeless, BE STILL! To the troubled in mind, BE STILL! To those battered and ABUSED, BE STILL! To the VICTIMIZED, BE STILL! TO THE PAUPERIZED, BE STILL! To the BASTARDIZED, BE STILL!

BE STILL for GOD IS ON OUR SIDE! AMEN!

  1. If a change thought can create such change in the world, a fixed (intentional) thought can move the universe! As Bahamians we are not focused on the core of the issues plaguing this country and therefore until we do we will not be able to progress.

    Here is the truth about change…

    “If we keep doing what we are doing – we will keep getting what we are getting.” We have lowered our standards and value system and so we are reaping what we have sowed. Change will come when we deal with all of the weeds that are killing any type of crop that we now sow.

    I think the first thing all Bahamians should do before they start talking is read and study the lyrics of our National anthem. It speaks volumes of who we are (supposed to be)!!!!!!

    RISE UP BAHAMAS…

  2. 2 Chronicle Chapter 20 has the answer – WE GIVE THANKS THAT THE IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN IS POSSIBLE WITH YAHWEH, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS – 2 Chronicles 20-War with Surrounding Nations – : 3 Jehoshaphat was terrified by this news and begged the Lord for guidance. He also ordered everyone in Judah to begin fasting. 4 So people from all the towns of Judah came to Jerusalem to seek the Lord’s help. 5 Jehoshaphat stood before the community of Judah and Jerusalem in front of the new courtyard at the Temple of the Lord. 6 He prayed, “O Lord, God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is in heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty; no one can stand against you! 7 O our God, did you not drive out those who lived in this land when your people Israel arrived? And did you not give this land forever to the descendants of your friend Abraham? 8 Your people settled here and built this Temple to honor your name. 9 They said, ‘Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war,plague, or famine, we can come to stand in your presence before this Temple where your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and you will hear us and rescue us.’ 10 “And now see what the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir are doing. You would not let our ancestors invade those nations when Israel left Egypt, so they went around them and did not destroy them. 11 Now see how they reward us! For they have come to throw us out of your land, which you gave us as an inheritance. 12 O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 13 As all the men of Judah stood before the Lord with their little ones, wives, and children, 14 the Spirit of the Lord came upon one of the men standing there. His name was Jahaziel son of Zechariah, son of Benaiah, son of Jeiel, son of Mattaniah, a Levite who was a descendant of Asaph. 15 He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow, march out against them. You will find them coming up through the ascent of Ziz at the end of the valley that opens into the wilderness of Jeruel. 17 But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!” 18 Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people of Judah and Jerusalem did the same, worshiping the Lord. 19 Then the Levites from the clans of Kohath and Korah stood to praise the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud shout. 20 Early the next morning the army of Judah went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. On the way Jehoshaphat stopped and said, “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.” 21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the Lord;his faithful love endures forever!” 22 At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. 23 The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. 24 So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped. 25 King Jehoshaphat and his men went out to gather the plunder. They found vast amounts of equipment, clothing,and other valuables—more than they could carry. There was so much plunder that it took them three days just to collect it all! 26 On the fourth day they gathered in the Valley of Blessing, which got its name that day because the people praised and thanked the Lord there. It is still called the Valley of Blessing today. 27 Then all the men returned to Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat leading them, overjoyed that the Lord had given them victory over their enemies. 28 They marched into Jerusalem to the music of harps, lyres, and trumpets, and they proceeded to the Temple of the Lord. 29 When all the surrounding kingdoms heard that the Lord himself had fought against the enemies of Israel, the fear of God came over them. 30 So Jehoshaphat’s kingdom was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side.LORD GOD OF HOST,IN THE MIGHTY NAME AND PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE RESURRECTED JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD, YOU ARE THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER. WE INVITE YOU TO INVADE THE TERRITORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS, AND CAUSE THE AWE OF WHO YOU ARE TO FALL UPON THE INHABITANTS OF THIS NATION, FOR YOU ARE GOD ALONE AND BESIDES YOU THERE IS NONE OTHER. SHOW FORTH YOUR SOUVERIGNITY IN THE AFFAIRS OF THIS NATION. THANK YOU ABBA FATHER FOR SHAKING THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS TO A DEGREE THAT HUMILITY AND A SERVANT’S HEART ARISES IN THOSE WHOM YOU HAVE CALLED TO SERVE THIS NATION.AMEN.
