Grenada’s 46th Anniversary of Independence – 7th February, 2020
We join with the people of Grenada in giving thanks to God as they celebrate their 46th Anniversary of Independence. We pray God’s continued guidance on Her Excellency Dame Cecile La Grenade, Governor General, Dr. The Honourable Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister, Members of Parliament and the people of Grenada.
O God our Father, whose will it is that your people should live in ordered societies; inspire the people of Grenada with the spirit of justice, truth and love; and so guide their leaders, and all who make decisions on their behalf, that they may direct their affairs in righteousness and peace; that they may live in peace and harmony and to your honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen.
National Anthem of Grenada
Hail Grenada, land of ours We pledge ourselves to thee Heads, hearts and hands in unity To reach our destiny Ever conscious of God Being proud of our heritage May we with faith and courage Aspire, build, advance As one people, one family God bless our nation.
