Prayers to God for Buju

1 Comment

About 20 minutes of prayer and Psalms reading were offered up supporters for entertainer Buju Banton in the halls of the Sam M Gibbons Federal Court this morning.
As the Group of about 19 people read from Psalm 21, Banton's name was inserted, replacing the name of King David of Israel and the common noun 'he'.

During the prayer supporters stood holding hand and chanted, "Victory, victory in Jesus Christ." They also chanted 'Freedom'.
It was a meeting of the faiths as Rastas and Christians prayed together. Before the group prayer, some supporters knelt and prayed.
Jurors at the Sam M Gibbons Federal Court in Tampa today began their second day of deliberations to determine the fate of reggae star Buju, real name Mark Myrie, who since last week, has been on trial for gun and drug-related offences.
