The Church of Pentecost has announced 3 days of fasting and prayers for Ghana over economic hardship.
This decision was taken by the Executive Council of the Church of Pentecost (COP).
The fasting will begin on Thursday, November 10.
Members of the church were asked in a circular “to pray and intercede for the nation and the global community”.
“We should also pray for wisdom for our leaders to find immediate solutions to these challenges.”
The circular signed by Chairman of COP Apostle Eric Nyamekye added: “The fasting and prayers, which are scheduled to end on Sunday, November 13, will be observed on the theme: ‘So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer’ (Ezra 8:23).
All assemblies have been asked to go about their existing programmes for the week, nonetheless.
“These prayer and fasting sessions may be fused with any existing programme scheduled for the week.
“All Area Heads and ministers are to get involved and organise these meetings at any convenient level that will yield the maximum result.”
The Chairman encouraged them “to keep trusting God with the belief that He will respond to our prayers and bring relief to the nation”.
Apostle Nyamekye ended by saying: “May the Lord pour on the church the spirit of supplication, and the burden to stand in the gap and build a hedge for the nation.”
