Pastor Rodney calls for prayers for Haiti

Pastor Rodney

Host of Q-95 Kingdom Connection Program, Pastor Randy Rodney has called on the evangelists to pray for Haiti.

In recent weeks widespread violence has broken-out in Haiti as armed gangs have taken control calling on the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry.

“We have prayer requests that have been endorsed by the Evangelical Association of the Caribbean and we ask you to pray for the situation there,” he urged. “The situation has deteriorated so badly that everybody is at risk in Haiti.”

Pastor Rodney continued, “And it is my humble view that some of the solutions that have been sought by some of the international organizations may not be the right solutions in terms of exacerbating the situation with war-type gear and military.”

Pastor Rodney stated that this is not the right approach for the situation in Haiti.

“I believe we need to find some way to have conversations with those who are mounting this protest against the sitting Prime Minister and the President of Haiti,” he stated. “I really believe that should be done, so there should be some mission in that regard while the Prime Minister is out of Haiti.”

Pastor Rodney went on to state that the Prime Minister of Haiti should resign and make way for a new leader with a mandate to have clear, fresh elections.

“That is what I believe we need to pray for, that there will be peace, there will be quiet, that those who are riling up the people would listen and pay some attention and there should be some de-escalation there,” he stated.

According to him, it is easy to stand and sit by and say to those who are revolting against the leadership that they are lawless, “when you do not understand what is happening there.”

“We do not have the time to explain everything that is happening in Haiti, however we believe that the best thing to do is to de-escalate the kind of civil war that is happening there now, to bring some [semblance] of normalcy,” Pastor Rodney noted.

He explained that, by having the current governing authority resign, a new governing authority should be appointed, “that will have free and fair elections within a couple months so that the people would come to a place where they know that they are now being governed by an authority that they have elected.”

In an effort to address the ongoing crisis in Haiti, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) convened an emergency summit in Kingston, Jamaica on March 11, which brought together, as partners, Heads of State, and Heads of Government from key countries engaged with Haiti.

According to reports from Aljazeera on Tuesday, March 12, following the meeting in Jamaica, Henry, who has led Haiti unelected since the 2021 assassination of its last president, spoke in a video address.

“The government that I am leading will resign immediately after the installation of [a transition] council,” Henry said. “I’m asking all Haitians to remain calm and do everything they can for peace and stability to come back as fast as possible.”

The erstwhile Haitian leader is currently stranded in the United States territory of Puerto Rico after being prevented by the threat from the gangs from returning home. A senior US official said he was free to remain there or travel elsewhere, though security in Haiti would need to improve for him to feel comfortable returning home.

Meanwhile, CARICOM Chairman, His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali, emphasized the urgency of the situation. “While considerable progress has been made,” he stated, “the stakeholders in Haiti are not yet where they need to be.” The dire conditions on the ground remain a serious concern for the regional bloc.

The summit aimed to achieve consensus among the various stakeholders, including Prime Minister Henry of Haiti. “Time is not on their side,” Dr. Ali asserted, urging swift action to chart a way forward. The stability and security of Haiti, along with urgent humanitarian aid provision, are central to the discussions.

The decision to engage Heads of State and Government at the highest-level underscores CARICOM’s commitment to unity. “We stand in solidarity with the Haitian people during this crisis,” Dr. Ali affirmed. “Our collective efforts will continue until a satisfactory resolution is reached—one that brings stability and relief to Haiti.”

As the international community watches, CARICOM’s unwavering dedication to Haiti remains steadfast. The Kingston summit serves as a beacon of hope, signaling a united front in the face of adversity. The road ahead may be challenging, but the resolve of CARICOM and its partners shines brightly, illuminating a path toward recovery for the people of Haiti.

    That pastor looks fat, I wonder if he works anywhere.
    Prayers have only helped Europeans steal what they want since inventing the gun. Prayers are useless just personal mind games. Some go as far as soukouyan and lougawoo.

      what an idiotically disingenuous statement,

      most of western philosophy and religion stems from African traditions (including prayer and the roots of democracy).

      In your your self-centered prejudice to label this practice as European you are denying your own heritage and robbing African tradition of the credit it rightly deserves.

    Yup, sending over thoughts and prayers…cause that always helps!

    Pastor how much can you pray for a country or a person who is cursed by God? Are you not aware of the allegiance that Haiti’ elders gave unto Satan and cursed (rebuke) God? I am certain that you are aware of it and that it is a generation times generation curse. IT cannot be reversed. Yes I will agree that there are many Haitians who are trying very hard to be adopted into the gift if grace but unfortunately the effect of that curse is in their DNA. And if you are not aware please talk to any elder Haitian who is not a hypocrite about that day in history. I agree 100% that God answers prayers so keep on praying as you have done for 20yrs + for Roosevelt Skerrit.

      When people do terrible things to someone, then educate you about it using their media and other means of bullying you take the easy road and believe the loud shiny perpetrators.
      If you’re referencing the God of the same people that imposed this level of destabilization and pain on Haiti you can keep that God with them, it’s all yours.

    Sir, prayers for Haiti is quite ok and we do need to do so but you too also need prayers. The bible said many are called few are chosen. Many will come in my name to deceive the weak. Sheep in wolf clothing. Not ALL that says LORD LORD will be saved.

      @lucas it’s not news because you’re an atheist. Carnival jump up news that is what you and your kind are living for. But a day is coming when you yourself will want prayers; as you are already badly in need of it.

        It must probably be better to be an atheist than to be Christian taking other people possessions and killing the most people worldwide. 🤔
        If you believe in God it must be the original God, not the one that Romans forced upon us as a man Jesus. Look further for truth.

        You religious people are funny, lol, you don’t even know a person, and you accuse the person of being an atheist simply for asking a question. Didn’t your bible tell you about judging people.

        Prayers of African people, the originators, are not the same as “preyers” of European people, they have already hijacked that prayer line. You now have to seek the original spirituality they shut down and burned down then educate us with their filthy violent culture.
