The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has declared three days of fasting and prayer, starting Thursday, November 5, 2020.
The programme which is under the theme “The horse is prepared for the battle, but victory is in the hands of the Lord”- Proverbs 21:31, will see party members praying and interceding for the peace and stability of the country ahead of the December 7 polls.
A press statement signed by the National Chairman of the NDC, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo on Thursday, November 5, 2020, said “The party deems it necessary to invite Ghanaians to join us in praying and interceding for the peace and stability of Ghana as our dear nation gears up for a crucial election.
“It is equally our belief that our nation requires God’s divine intervention to halt the recent spate of armed robbery, killings and other violent crimes that we are witnessing across the length and breadth of the country in the run-up to this year’s elections”.
He added that the NDC recognised that it is God Almighty who chooses good leaders for nations, “hence the party shall be fasting and praying for a resounding victory for our Flag-bearer and Parliamentary Candidates in the upcoming elections”.
As part of the program, a prayer meeting would be held at the party’s National Headquarters, on Saturday, November 7, 2020, and climaxed with a church service on Sunday, November 8, 2020, at the Royal House Chapel International in Accra.
The party, therefore, called on all officials, members, and sympathisers of the NDC, as well as the general public, to participate in the programme, which he said will determine and shape the destiny and future of the country.
