Palau begins 2019 in a prayer

The Palau Baptist Church choir sings worship songs during the national day of prayer at the capitol on January 3.

Palauans gathered at the National Capitol to spend a moment in prayer yesterday, January 3.

Religious groups joined government officials in the event with some offering prayers and worship songs.

President Tommy Remengesau, Jr., in an interview, took the time to express that Palau being a Christian island nation gives the country better strength and outlook for 2019.

“We need to be very thankful that Palau continues to be a Christian island nation,” Remengesau said.

“There’s peace and when there’s peace, there’s respect, and when there’s peace and respect, then that’s when things get done,” the president added.

Remengesau previously signed a presidential proclamation declaring January 3 as the National Day of Prayer and called for everyone, regardless of religious backgrounds, to come together in prayer. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
