Listen to article

A non-denominational thanksgiving service would be held on Saturday, December 20 at the Independence Square to express appreciation to God for the peaceful elections held on December 7.

A release signed by Mrs. Gifty Affenyi-Dadzie, National Prayer Director of Aglow International, said the special thanksgiving service dubbed: “Celebrating the Goodness of God” was dedicated to the peaceful vote.

The statement said Ghanaians prayed to the Almighty God to ensure that the nation witnessed a violence-free, fair, transparent and peaceful election.

It added that both local and foreign observers attested to the fact that the peaceful outcome of the election had made Ghana a beacon of hope in Africa in strengthening its democratic effort.

“There is therefore the need to thank God for being gracious to the nation and publicly acknowledge that it is the act of God and give him all the glory.”

The statement asked Ghanaians to continue to pray for an equally peaceful, fair and transparent presidential run-off election scheduled for December 28, for God's will to be done in the nation.

The service is expected to be attended by a cross-section of the Ghanaian public including wives of flag bearers and other dignitaries.
