Christian Religious Leaders in the country have set three days to seek God’s face in prayer and fasting over the fight against coronavirus.
This was announced when they met President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.
According to the Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Paul Boafo, this is forms part of the church’s support to the government in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, which has since claimed nine lives in the country.
He said that the three day national prayer and fasting programme starts from Friday, April 24 – Sunday, April 26, 2020.
“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,” he said.
At a time when Ghana had confirmed 53 cases with two deaths, President Akufo-Addo declared a national day of prayer and fasting, which was duly observed on Wednesday, March 25 for Christians and March 26 for Muslims.
Ghana, as of April 21, 2020, has confirmed 1024 cases of COVID-19 with 99 recoveries and 9 deaths.
