Christians worship ahead of Sunday’s election

Listen to article

Some Churches, which have brought forward their normal Sunday worship to Saturday, have held church services in Accra with the focus being

a peaceful and successful election.
The church services are being held on Saturday to give worshippers enough time to vote on Sunday, which

is Election Day.
At the Global Evangelical Church, Yahweh Chapel

at Lashibi, the service was dedicated to prayers for peaceful elections.

Special prayers were said for God's guidance for

all officials who would preside over the elections as well as for the youth.

The Rev. Godwin Agbevem, Parish Pastor, urged members of the congregation to conduct themselves peacefully at the various polling stations where they will be voting.

He asked all Christians to remain steadfast in prayer to ensure that only the will of God was manifested in the choice of a leader who would bring unity and reconciliation to the country.

At the Taifa Assembly of the Christ Apostolic
Church International, the Rev. Enoch Osafo, the Resident Minister led the congregation to pray for a peaceful election.

Rev Osafo urged Ghanaians to ensure that the elections become peaceful no matter which party won because Ghana should be placed first before each party

or their presidential and parliamentary candidates.

Quoting from Romans 13: 1-7, he said all leaders and rulers were made from God and so whoever resisted them resisted the will of God and would suffer damnation.

Rev. Osafo asked the congregation not to engage in any controversy before, during or after the elections but exercise their voting rights as responsible persons. Earlier in a sermon, the Rev Oko Abossey, the Guest Preacher, said there was a reward for every good thing done and asked the congregation to ensure that the electioneering process was peaceful at all levels.
