The family of former Liberian President, Charles Ghankay Taylor has announced that a mid-day intercessory service will be hosted on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the Dominion Christian Fellowship Center in Congo Town, adjacent the Catholic Hospital intersection.
The Taylor family says the prayer service is intended to invoke God’s intervention, in the wake of the appeal judgment scheduled to be handed down on September 26, 2013 by the Special Court for Sierra Leone, sitting in The Hague.
In a press release issued in Monrovia on Monday, the family of Charles Ghankay Taylor said whatever the outcome of the appeal judgment; they will continue to seek God’s guidance and direction for the former President.
The family is therefore calling on all religious leaders, well wishers and friends of former President Taylor to dress in white or symbolically carry a white cloth or inscription in purity and join in prayers at the Dominion Christian Fellowship Center or wherever they may be at 12 noon on Saturday, September 21, 2013 to ask God’s protection for Mr. Taylor.
The Taylor family clarified that the mid-day prayer service is not a political event and is urging all well wishers of former President Taylor to turn out in full, in a show of prayerful solidarity, as the final judgment in his appeal trial is being handed down in a few days.
The intercessory service will strictly be a praise and worship fellowship, seeking God’s divine intervention.
