The Church of Pentecost (COP) has declared a three-day fasting and prayer session for all members starting on November 10, 2022.
The Church’s Executive Council arrived at the decision in the wake of economic hardship being experienced in the country.
“It is apparent that the country for some time now has been going through some economic challenges which threaten the peace and security of the nation.
“The church in times like this has a divine responsibility to intercede for the nation,” he said.
Addressing the congregation on Sunday, the Chairman of COP, Apostle Eric Nyamekye told the members to adhere to the directive.
Acknowledging that the announcement came on short notice, he urged the gathering to do so to invite the divine direction into Ghana’s leadership to place the economy on a better footing.
He highlighted a biblical reference to buttress his point. ‘So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer’ (Ezra 8:23).
On the back of this, he indicated that “we should also pray for wisdom for our leaders to find immediate solutions to these challenges.”
The fasting and prayers are expected to take place from November 10th to 13th.
