United for a Greater Nation
A National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving
This photo is from another recent event, Raja Yoga Peace Day,
sponsored by IRO of Trinidad & Tobago.
Participants came together in prayer for a greater nation - our families, seniors and younger generation - on Sunday, September 27, 2009, at Queen's Park Savannah in Port of Spain from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to pray for our nation and to learn about the 2009 Parliament of the World's Religions, which will be held this December in Melbourne, Australia.
The National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving is an annual event that has been held on either the Sunday before or after Republic Day which is the 24th of September. Usually the Head of State, that is the President of the country, gives the feature address. However, this year the committee agreed that a religious leader should give the feature address.
Prayer, readings from the scriptures, religious songs and meditation formed part of the activities for this event.
