The Christian Council has declared a three day national prayer and fasting programme and urged all to participate.
The purpose of this is to seek the face of God as Ghana’s COVID-19 cases in Ghana keeps rising.
This was made known after the Christian Council met with President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House on April 21, to discuss the ban on public gathering which has affected church activities all over the country.
The Church leaders wanted to find out why the restriction of movement in Accra and Kumasi has been lifted but the ban on public gathering still stood.
After the meeting they agreed to stick by the current directive and promised to do all they can to help the country win the fight against COVID-19.
Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Reverend Paul Boafo assured the President that they will adhere to the current ban church activities and will do all they can to ensure government wins the fight against COVID-19.
“All of us have come together to organize a 3-day national prayer and fasting programme starting Friday through to Sunday this very week which is part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how Ghana is also helping to fight it,”
In March last President Akufo-Addo decalred a national prayer and fasting which was observed nationwide and that was all part of efforts to combact the dealy virus.
The prayer and fasting programme was to seek God’s intervention as the country and the world battled the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic which has infected hundreds of thousands of people and claimed many lives across the globe.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) also in that same mponth organized a 3-day prayer and fasting and urged all to join as the world was in tatters due to the virus.
Ghana’s COVID-19 case as of April 19,2020 stands at 1,042 with 9 deaths and 22 recoveries so far.
