A “National Healing and Prayer Rally” was yesterday launched in Accra with a call on Ghanaians to rise and pray for economic transformation of the country.
Launched by Lawrence Tetteh Ministries (LTM), the week-long prayer rally aims at bringing together religious leaders and worshippers, to pray and to address every evil agenda formed against the country.
It is on the theme: “A Prayerless Nation Is a Powerless Nation” and it’s a non-denominational miracle service which will be held on September 27 to October 3 at 6:00p.m. at the Miracle Centre situated behind the Christian Village, Golf Club, Achimota School, Accra.
Speaking at the launch, The President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach (WMO) and the LTM, Reverend Dr Lawrence Tetteh noted that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had created “fear and panic,” thus had stopped the advancement and fellowship of the church services.
That, he stated had affected moral standards, spiritual well-being of the people and hadretarded the socio-economic progress of the country.
“Ghana today is beset by challenges of every kind and vices which seek to undermine its development and to derail our economic progress and we believe that an intense prayer and divine intervention is the way forward,” Rev Tetteh added.
Prayerlessness, he indicated had permeated the body of politics, educational structures, health sector and all the socio-economic structures of the country and expressed an urgent need for religious leaders to sit up and revive the spirituality of the people through prayers.
“We need the hand of God like never before. We must rise and pray for God to restore our nation to its full glory. There is no gain saying that our politics, our economy and our educational systems, our professional and religious institutions are in crisis. This is the reason why we must pray in these crucial times. We need the church to pray fervently for the healing of our land, “Rev Tetteh stated.
He charged Christians to join hands with his outfit to make the prayer event a success, adding that “restoration and true hope can only come from God.”
