Christians have been urged to pray for the Electoral Commission (EC), to be guided by God to organise a credible election in December 7.
This is because the Commission plays a critical role, which could not be over emphasised and every act of bias on its part could have adverse effect on the peace and development of the nation.
The Chairman for the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) for the Michel Camp and Kakasunanka Number One Zone, Reverend Andrews Nelson Awintia, made the call during his acceptance speech as the newly inducted Zonal Chairman at a ceremony here.
The GPCC is a body made up of charismatic and Pentecostal churches which have come under one umbrella for unity and to engage in activities that would help win more souls for Christ.
He admonished the youth not to allow themselves to be used by a “selfish or ungodly” politician for his or her selfish gains.
Rev. Awintia who is also the Resident Pastor for the Bethel Family Chapel Assemblies of God Church at Tema Community 22 Annex, said it was important that churches also made time to pray for God to choose a leader “who is after God’s own heart.”
He held the view that if Godly persons were elected to rule, the nation would enjoy freedom, justice, prosperity and development.
The Clergyman urged churches to come together to fight the common enemy, the devil and not allow the differences in denominations to divide them.
Rev. Awintia expressed appreciation to the various churches under the Council for the confidence reposed in the newly elected members and assured them that they would work hard to continue the good work started by their predecessors.
The GPCC Regional Secretary, Rev. Johnny Apeakorang, urged the members to be strong, courageous and trust in God for guidance and protection.
He said hard times may come, but if Ghanaians trust in God, He would never forsake them.
