Prez Mahama (middle), receiving prayers from the congregation

President John Mahama on Sunday joined the Grace Pentecostal Assemblies of God Church at Effiakuma, near Takoradi to hold a special thanksgiving church service to begin his two-day visit to the Western Region.

During the visit, President Mahama is expected to inaugurate one of the government’s 200 Community day Senior High Schools at Bamiankor in the Nzema East District.

He would also inspect ongoing projects by the government and engage the business community in various meetings.

This is about the third time President Mahama, a member of the Assemblies of God, is worshipping with the congregation.

The congregation prayed to God for divine strength and knowledge for the president to effectively steer the affairs of the country.

The Ministers of State, Members of Parliament (MP), the clergy and national executives and supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) were in attendance.

He called on Christians to always pray for their pastors, saying the work of a pastor is a difficult one.

The president pointed out that “we should be a country of optimists not skeptics. Our politics should not be life and death one. Ghanaians should take a cue from happenings in countries around us that are war-torn.”

He told the congregation that God, in his own wisdom, would choose a leader for the country in the next general elections in 2016.

He called on Ghanaians to eschew violence ahead of the 2016 elections because it is God who ordains a leader.

“Our politics should never be about life and death because God in his own wisdom will choose a leader for us,”
adding that “Ghana is the only country that has not suffered civil war. Our nation is favoured and our nation is great.”

He challenged the congregation to acquire skills to enable them to benefit from the many resources that abound in the region.

President Mahama said his government would continue to invest in the region since the area contributes significantly to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

He urged Christians to support the government in the national development agenda and appealed to the church to preach against social evils that were likely to undermine the growth of the country.

President Mahama mentioned that government was constructing roads and sea defence walls, as well as expanding the ports to create numerous jobs for the teeming youth of the country.

He said the Western Region was the next growth pole and urged the people to support the various assemblies to achieve the goal. 

Rev Dr Paul Henry Dsane, who is in-charge of the Grace Pentecostal Assemblies of God, preached the sermon.
