Mrs Mary Asante, a Deaconess of the Church of Pentecost at New Suame in Kumasi, has stressed the need for Ghanaians to ensure peace in the December 7 polls.

She said that Ghana has gained much recognition in democracy and good governance and that the international community was watching.

Mrs Asante was preaching the sermon at the end of a three-day prayer meeting organized by the Ashanti Regional Women's Prayer Group (ASHWOPG) in Kumasi on Friday.

The function attended by over 500 Christian women was under the theme, “But the People Who Know Their God Will Firmly Resist Him”.

She praised the New Patriotic Party {NPP} government under President John Agyekum Kufour for ensuring good governance, democracy, rule of law and fundamental human rights, which had promoted stability and development of the country.

She advised Christians to pray unceasingly to God that there would be harmony in the country before, during and after the elections

The Deaconess reminded political parties and their followers to avoid insults and intimidation, which could resort to violence and conflicts to mar the beauty of the elections.

Mrs Mary Brobbey, Chairperson of ASHWOPG, said the Group was formed two years ago to mobilize Christian women to meet regularly and pray to God to ensure peace in the country. She extended her gratitude and appreciation to individuals and organizations for donating towards the activities and programmes of the Group.
