The Chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, was among some respected Christian leaders invited to the Jubilee House, the seat of government, on March 19, 2020, to offer special prayers for Ghana in the wake of the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
The prayer breakfast meeting which was held at the instance of the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, saw other heads of churches in attendance. They include Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah (immediate past Chairman of The Church of Pentecost and former President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council), Rev. Prof. Paul Frimpong-Manso (General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Ghana, and President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council), Right Reverend Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah (Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana), and Rt. Rev. Paul Kwabena Boafo (Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana).
Others were Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams of the Action Chapel International, Reverend Sam Korankye Ankrah (Apostle General of the Royalhouse Chapel International), Bishop Dag Heward-Mills (Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Group of Churches), Bishop Charles Agyinasare of the Perez Chapel International and Rev Eastwood Anaba of the Fountain Gate Chapel, among others.
The clergy prayed for Ghana, the medical personnel fighting the deadly disease, the President and the government and divine intervention against the spread of the disease.
In an address, President Akufo-Addo admonished Ghanaians to seek the face of God, in the wake of the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country, whilst observing, at the same time, the enhanced measures announced by government in dealing with the menace.
President Akufo-Addo expressed his belief that Ghanaians, with their abiding faith in God, will overcome the Coronavirus pandemic, adding that “this, too, will pass.”
Reiterating his conviction that ‘these are not ordinary times’, he noted that “in such times, a country whose population is predominantly Christian, must seek the face of the One True God for healing and restoration.”
