Jamaica is a very religious community, often referred to by many as a Christian country for a number of reasons. One, she has the most churches per square mile according to the Guinness book of world record.

Secondly, her National Anthem is a prayer to God. Christian prayers are said in every school to start the day. Prayer is also said before the start of Parliament, the seat of governance of the country.
