Judge: Prayer alone won’t work


Share post:

Prayer alone won’t save society from any downward spiral and crime, a High Court judge declared yesterday.

What will, said Justice Carlisle Greaves, is if people speak out against crime and if they ensure that children behave in the manner they should.

“It is never going to happen by prayer alone,” he stressed. “I saw a headline recently that suggested that the only thing that can help us is prayer. I disagree. I think even the one who taught us to pray, Our Father, etcetera, even He also knows that it is our duty to get up and act.”

Justice Greaves made the comments as he bid farewell to the jurors in the No, 3 Supreme Court whose stints came to an end yesterday. (HLE)
