The Church of Pentecost on January 1, 2021, launched a year-round fasting and prayer marathon, starting from the Kaneshie Area of the church.
The initiative, a brainchild of the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and the Executive Council, is aimed at sparking a global revival and divine restoration.
All districts of the church nationwide are to observe it at scheduled dates with all-day prayer and fasting for the church and the nation at large.
At the launch of the exercise on New Year Day, four districts in the Kaneshie Area namely, Adwen-Bu, Chantan, Darkuman, and Darkuman Nyamekye initiated the prayer marathon.
It was followed on January 2 by the Mataheko, North Kaneshie, Nii Okaiman, and Kwashieman districts, with other districts taking their turns in the successive days.
The Area Head of Kaneshie, Apostle Mike Kwame Etrue, who is also a Member of the Executive Council, visited all the districts to participate in the exercise.
The prayer topics include intercession for the Executive Council and the vision for the church, Holy Spirit to work beyond the church, Global Evangelization, Church Finance and Missions, the health of the ministers of the church and their families, and revival in the Church.
Others are a prayer for the welfare of the members of the church, Lay Leaders, COVID-19 pandemic, the President of the Republic and his Cabinet, the nation, and the swearing-in of the President and aftermath.
