COP declares 3-day fasting, prayers for God’s intervention

The Executive Council of the Church of Pentecost (COP) has declared a three-day fasting and prayer session for all members across the country over the economic crisis.

The three-day fasting and prayer, which is expected to begin on Thursday, November 10 to Sunday, November 13,is to intercede for the nation and the global community over the current economic hardship.

It would be observed on the theme: “So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer” (Ezra 8:23).

This was contained in a circular issued and signed by the Chairman of the COP, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, sighted by the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday.

It said all members were requested “to pray and intercede for the nation and the global community.We should also pray for wisdom for our leaders to find immediate solutions to these challenges”.

The circular further asked all assemblies to go about their existing programmes for the week, nonetheless, saying “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,” it added.

Apostle Nyamekye also encouraged church members not to despair in these trying times but “to keep trusting God with the belief that He will respond to our prayers and bring relief to the nation”.

“May the Lord pour on the church the spirit of supplication, and the burden to stand in the gap and build a hedge for the nation,” the circular said.

The Church of Pentecost has been contributing enormously to the development of the nation through social interventions, such as building of schools, hospitals, prisons among others to help transform the economy and also draw souls for Christ.

As part of its vision for 2023, the church is envisaged to possess the nations by equipping the Church to transform every sphere of society with values and principles of the Kingdom of God and to contribute to public policy in this form.
