Women’s Aglow Ministry prays for an end to challenges (Spread)


The National Prayer Director of the Women’s Aglow Ministry, Mrs Gifty Afenyi-Dadzie, has challenged Ghanaians to put aside all other interests and pray for the nation to overcome its energy and economic challenges.

“Let us pray to God to give our leaders direction so that decisions they take can find a lasting solution to our problems,” she said.

Mrs Afenyi-Dadzie, who is also a former member of the Council of State and a former President of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), made the call at the monthly Aglow Women’s prayer session in Accra.

With the theme of the prayer anchored on  Isaiah 64:9: “Do not be angry beyond measure, O Lord; Do not remember Ghana’s sins forever. Oh, look on us, we pray, for we are your people”, the congregation prayed for forgiveness of the country’s sins.

Ghana’s power sector had been in crisis since 2012. Different timelines given for an end to the crisis have not yielded any positive results. 

That aside, the cedi has also been on a free fall for some time now, although a lot of mitigating measures have been rolled out by the Bank of Ghana and the government. 

On the day thousands of people also marched in the night in the celebrity-led ‘’dumsor’’ vigil aimed at putting pressure on the government to deal with the energy situation, the women sat on the floor while praying, ostensibly in total surrender to God for Him to provide a solution. 

Knowledge and understanding for leaders

Waving miniature Ghana flags, Mrs Afenyi-Dadzie, leading the prayers, referred to a number of scriptures, including Daniel 5, and asked for knowledge and understanding and the ability to solve difficult problems for the country’s leadership.

She said it was not as though the leadership of the country was not doing anything about the energy crisis but rather, God’s hand was needed in the situation to prevent the periodic breakdown of  plants.  

She, however, observed that as the country was desperate to solve the energy crisis, it was important for Christians to pray that the country did not seek assistance from nations that were not in the good books of God. 
That, she said, could worsen the nation’s plight.

The congregation prayed for the key players in the country’s power generation and distribution sector, especially the Volta River Authority, not to become a white elephant but rather productive and efficient.

Ghana’s educational system, the fishing sector and social interventions, including the School Feeding Programme, the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), were all on the congregation’s prayer list.

Every month, Aglow prays for a particular region. Last Saturday, it was the turn of the Eastern Region.

Prayer against corruption 

Using fruits and minerals and other natural resources from the region as symbolic representation, the congregation prayed that the region would be revived and value added to its resources to develop the country.

Apart from praying against corruption and asking Christians to help curb the canker, Mrs Afenyi-Dadzie also asked the congregation to pray against saboteurs and all persons who did not want the country’s challenges to be resolved because of their personal interests. 

She also asked Ghanaians, especially traders, to desist from unnecessarily increasing the prices of goods and services, saying, “if you take from others unjustifiably, God will also not bless you.
