ST KITTS & NEVIS
ABOUT ST KITTS & NEVIS
Nevis was once the richest Caribbean island, producing 85% of the British Empire’s sugar. The collapse of the world sugar price shut down this industry completely. Tourism is now the primary industry, with offshore finance growing quickly. Public debt is 78.5% of GDP.
The shift in economy, from sugar to tourism and offshore finance, has borne unwanted fruit in attracting, along with the money, undesirable elements. Pray for personal and social righteousness to combat this trend.
There is no lack of churches or other ministries on these islands, but their impact is limited. Pray for the Holy Spirit to revive, empower and embolden believers for Kingdom effectiveness. Pray especially for ministries that draw together the diverse denominations, such as the Evangelical Association and Youth Impact Ministries.
Women lead 45% of households. Teenage mothers account for 19% of the total number of live births nationally. Pray that God might work to restore the strength of family life in this nation.
