I ask your prayers for Mr. Edward Lord from the parish of St. David/St. Paul Grenada, husband of the Rev’d Mrs. Meryl Lord, who is a patient at the General Hospital, St. George’s Grenada.
Grenada had General Elections yesterday 23rd June, 2022 and The National Democratic Congress under the leadership of Mr. Dickon Mitchell won nine of the fifteen seats contested and the incumbent New National Party under the leadership of Dr. The Honourable Keith Mitchell the remaining six.
We congratulate the National Democratic Congress on their victory at the polls, and give thanks to God for all who have offered themselves for public office at this election and in the past.
We pray God’s continued grace and blessings on the Government and people of Grenada.

Amen. (CPWI BCP page 199 #13)
