NDC sets to embark on a three-day fasting and prayers to fortify the ‘horse’ for the 2020 elections
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has declared a three-day national fasting and prayers among members of the party as part of preparation towards the upcoming elections.
Dubbed; “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory is in the hands of the lord,” the party has extended an invitation to all Ghanaians to help in their course to claim victory from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to a statement issued in Accra today and signed by the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo the prayer was intended to evoke the hand of God in helping to promote peace during and after the elections.
The prayers would among other things seek divine intervention to minimise the recent rise in robbery attacks and killings across the country.
The three-day religious activity would commence on November 5 and climaxed on Sunday, November 8 at the Royal House Chapel International in Accra.
“A prayer meeting will be held at the party’s National Headquarters, on Saturday, 7th November 2020 and climaxed with a church service on the morning of Sunday, 8th November 2020 at the Royal House Chapel International in Accra,” the statement added.
It encouraged the citizenry to support in the national party activity to ensure its success.
“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,” the statement said.
