His Excellency John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills has called on the Christian community to remember Ghana in their prayers. This was at the 69th Synod ceremony of the Global Evangelical Church in Accra today.
President Mills asked every individual to pray fervently and sincerely for the betterment of the country, because it is only with the support of God that the nation can be made better.
He noted that the theme of the ceremony, “that none should perish” is significant because a nation must submit to God and his guidance for sustenance.
The President emphasised that it is not in God’s plan that Christians should perish, therefore, we should let our lights shine among men.
He indicated that the better Ghana agenda should not be left out and appealed to pastors and leaders of churches to live lives that will glorify God.
The Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, Rt Rev. Dr. Emmanuel K. Gbordzoe, commended the government for his efforts to clamp down on armed robbery and related vices in the country.
He pleaded with the government not to yield to any external and internal pressures to promote human rights which are inimical to the moral and spiritual health of the country.
“Many Christians, including highly placed leaders, priests, pastors and reverend ministers are falling from this secure position in Christ through immoral lives and also walk according to their own desires’’, the Moderator lamented.
