Featured artiste at this year’s Gospel Fest, Gabrielle Denae has made public cries for the British Virgin Islands to return to being the God-fearing and nation it once was.
According to the songstress, persons in the territory have lost their proverbial way with God.
“On behalf of the BVI, take us back, Lord. Take us back to the place where we first believed – when all we had was you in our individual lives. Teach us how to walk before you,” said Denae while performing at Thursday night’s Gospel Fest – the first event held inside the festival village in Road Town for the 2018 emancipation festivities.
“Lord, we ask that you run this country,” she continued.
Denae told patrons at the gospel event there are several things that needs to change in order for God to ‘take the BVI back’.
“There are things that we are holding on to that is actually killing us, and it gives glory to the devil and takes glory away from God,” she said.
“There are some things that you just got to let go. Jealousy – you have to let go; un-forgiveness, you have to let go, gossip; fornication; witchcraft; the love of money. Oh Lord, help us to let go.”
She urged persons to take her message seriously.
