As Ghana’s economic situation worsens by the day and there appears to be no hope in sight, the Church of Pentecost has declared a three-day fast and prayer across the country to seek God’s intervention.
A circular dated Saturday, November 5 has directed all church assemblies to make space for fasting and prayer while ensuring that it does not interfere with their regular programs.
“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 requested as quoted by 3news.com.
“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 fasting and prayer, which will begin on Thursday, November 10 and end on Sunday, November 13, is intended to intercede for Ghana and the global community during these difficult times.
The church went even further to encourage its members not to give up hope and to continue to trust God for a miracle.
“Continue to trust God, believing that He will answer our prayers and bring relief to the nation.”
“May the Lord pour out on the church the spirit of intercession and the burden to stand in the gap and build a hedge for the nation,” the circular concluded.
‘So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer,’ is the theme of the fasting and prayer. (Ezra 8:23)
