President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s declaration of today, Wednesday March 25, Wednesday as a national day of prayers and fasting has been described as a best decision by members of the clergy.
Reverend Ransford Obeng, the leader of Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), the biggest charismatic church in the Ashanti region, said “Nana deserves praises” because of the decision to have a national day of fasting and prayers.
According to him, it is clear that medical and science experts are struggling to find a cure for the deadly Covid-19 virus, which has so far sent thousands of people into their graves worldwide.
In this uncertainly and state of confusion, Reverend Ransford Obeng said it is appropriate that President Nana Akufo-Addo has declared a day of fasting and prayers to seek God’s intervention.
The CCC leader recalled that God had usually listened to the cries of His people in times of trouble and during the outbreak of diseases so the President’s call is perfect.
Sounding very positive, Reverend Ransford Obeng, speaking during a press briefing on Tuesday said God would definitely listen to the cries of Ghanaians on Wednesday.
He therefore charged Christians and members of the other religious groupings in the country to actively participate in the national day of fasting and prayers to heal the land.
The CCC leader also admonished the people to keep their environment clean, avoid handshakes and maintain social distancing as directed by health professionals.
According to him, if the people adhered to the directives of health experts and also seek God’s intervention, through fasting and prayers, the virus would certainly be defeated.
Reverend Ransford Obeng also urged the people to pray for wisdom for scientists that are researching to find cure for the virus, saying “I pray that the solution will come from Ghana”.
