The Church of Pentecost (COP) Executive Council has called for a nationwide fast and prayer meeting for all COP members commencing on Thursday, November 10.
Sighted by 3news.com, the circular asks members “to pray and plead for the country and the world community” and is dated Saturday, November 5.
“We should also pray for wisdom for our leaders to find immediate solutions to these challenges,” the circular signed by Chairman of COP Apostle Eric Nyamekye requested.
The fasting and prayers, which are scheduled to end on Sunday, November 13, will be observed on the theme: ‘So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer’ (Ezra 8:23).
All assemblies have been asked to go about their existing programmes for the week, nonetheless.
“These prayer and fasting sessions may be fused with any existing programme scheduled for the week.
“All Area Heads and ministers are to get involved and organise these meetings at any convenient level that will yield the maximum result.”
Despite the hardships, Apostle Nyamekye urged believers to “remain believing God with the hope that He would react to our prayers and provide comfort to the country.”
To wrap up, he prayed, “May the Lord pour on the church the spirit of petition, and the burden to stand in the gap and construct a hedge for the country.”
