[dropcap]G[/dropcap]ood afternoon fellow Ghanaians.lt is with heavy heart l write this piece.
It is very disheartening and worrying the rate at which almost every passing day,we hear reported cases of strange deaths in the country in recent times.
This is making a lot of Ghanaians to read superstitions into the reported cases ranging from suicide,car accidents,burnt cases and others getting drown.
This is very worrying especially considering the youths that are supposed to be the future leaders of this country losing their lives on daily basis just like that.
[ads1]To mention a few,just within two weeks, over 15 young people have committed suicide. 15 people have been confirmed dead in a road crash between two vehicles at Gomoa Mpromem,near Apam in the Central Region and left 11 others injured, who are currently on admission in hospital.
Residents of Anfoeta in the Ho West District of the Volta Region were stunned on Sunday 12th March, 2017 morning at the sight of a lifeless body floating in the pond.
The 4 Nursing Trainees that died in that terrible accident.
This is very unusual, and making some to believe perhaps it is as a result of some rituals performed before and during the 2016 general elections and that some demons may be demanding their thanksgiving sacrifices.This could be true or false.
But l believe this is not the time for us to play blame games.We must all rise up to the occasion as a nation and cry loud to the Lord for mercy.
There is great power through the spirit of God, so it is therefore prudent we come together,turning our hearts towards God and praying on behalf of our dear nation.
I am therefore calling on the President of the Republic of Ghana HE Nana Addo to as a matter of urgency call for national prayers to avert the lost of further lives.
I will like to urge pastors and other religious leaders to support the President in organizing special prayers for the country.
I urge Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and other men of God,who in times past championed powerful national prayers sessions to help avert this situation we found ourselves.
We just know we have a deep ache in our hearts that cries out for God’s mercy, and a longing to see him heal our land.
But in all of the battles,defending our views, or pointing out differences, we have to ask ourselves one questions.Have we prayed about it as much as we’ve talked about it?
God never leaves us to fend for ourselves, wrestling with worry, consumed in fear,or tempted towards hate.He reminds us He is with us and will help us.
He hears our prayers,He knows our needs.
There is great power in uniting together,turning our hearts towards Him,and praying on behalf of our nation and that is what we want to see our current President Nana Addo championing in times like this as the father of this dear nation.
We expect to see action in that regard and make the good Lord have mercy upon Ghanaians.
