The Kasoa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, has encouraged Christians to continue to seek the face of God in the wake of the novel COVID-19 pandemic, because God has the power to drive it away from the face of the earth.
In a televised sermon on Friday afternoon [April 24, 2020] as part of the 3-day All Christians Prayer and Fasting, the former General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) said that there is power in prayer and that whenever believers resort to it the seemingly impossible things become possible.
Reading from 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, Apostle Wood noted that fasting is one way of submitting to the divine authority of God. He called on all Christians to humble themselves through prayer and fasting for God to forgive the sins of the land and heal it from any pestilence.
He however said that fasting without prayer is like embarking on a hunger strike which is without any positive effect.
He added that as Christians humble themselves, repent of their sins pray and seek the face of God, God will answer them and heal the land of any plague.
Advising the people of the world to turn from their wicked ways, Apostle Wood charged Ghanaians to be compassionate towards the poor, aged, weak and the vulnerable so that God will have mercy on the nation and restore the land.
