The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) is calling on all Ghanaians to join them pray for peace, prosperity and healing for the country as the nation prepares to celebrate the birth of Christ and usher itself into the new year.
The Council has asked Ghanaians to remember that Christmas, which signifies the birth of Christ, is God’s greatest gift of love to humanity and allow that love to permeate every aspect of their national lives.
“As we celebrate the coming of Christ on earth, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Church (GPCC) calls on all Ghanaians to join us pray for the peace, prosperity and healing of our country as we enter the year 2021”, a statement from the GPCC said.
According to the president of the Council, Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso, it is essential for all political actors and citizens to exhibit a high sense of tolerance and desist from extreme forms of partisan politics for peace and unity to prevail.
The GPCC noted with concern, with all the emerging issues, there is a possibility of the recently held elections to end up in court and therefore appealed to political parties to be tolerant of each other.
As many people travel to their villages and other holiday destinations, the council entreats all and sundry to celebrate the festive season in moderation and exercise caution on the road to avoid needless accidents and injuries.
“As we enter 2021, let us commit ourselves collectively as patriotic citizens to serving mother Ghana in whatever small way we can towards improving the socio-economic wellbeing of the country”, they added.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso made this remark alluding to the pockets of violence that characterized the just-ended December polls, which led to the loss of about 5 lives and several injuries.
The President, on behalf of the National Executive Council members, further wished all Ghanaians a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year ahead of Friday’s festivities.
