Join us in praying for Africa

Ghana Map and FlagDear Friends & Partners,

It is our joy as brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for the nations of the world.  Please join us as we focus, at this time, on the nation of Ghana.

Ghana was the first place in sub-Saharan Africa where Europeans arrived to trade; first in gold and later in slaves.  It was also the first black African nation in the region to achieve independence from colonial power (Britain).

Despite being rich in mineral resources, and endowed with a good education system and efficient civil service, Ghana fell victim to corruption and mis-management soon after independence in 1957.

Today, it is a well administered country by regional standards; Ghana is often seen as a model for political and economic reform in Africa.  It has been a significant petroleum and natural gas producer since December 2010, one of the world's largest gold and diamond producers and is projected to be the largest producer of cocoa in the world as of 2015.

Population: 25 million

Main Language: English (84 other indigenous languages)

Religions: 63% Christian, 23% Muslim and 14% combination of Ethno-religions and Non-relious

Leader: John Dramani Mahama

Points for Prayer

  • Widom and stability in the government - especially in the light of economic growth and potential
  • Guidance - with regards to the country's involvement in events affecting West Africa and it's immediate neighbours including: the Ebola outbreak, recent protests and violence in Burkina Faso and the Islamist terrorist threat in Nigeria
  • Growth in the church in Ghana - that the influence of Christianity on morals and values in the country may increase and be effective

 

Thank you for your prayer and support,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
