Ghana News Agency – The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has been tasked by President John Mahama to coordinate this year’s National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving.

Reverend Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, the Coordinator of the National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving, said the observation of the week, which government had organized for the past few years, does not receive full and effective public participation.

Rev. Opuni-Frimpong told a press conference on Tuesday that some members of the public did not participate in the previous national week of prayer and thanksgiving because they perceived the service to be politicized by government.

He said a Committee has, therefore, been set-up by the church councils to organize the event.

“In the light of the above, we have, therefore, slated 30th June to 6th July, 2014 as the National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving,” he said, adding that, 6th July will be the climax with a thanksgiving service at The Holy Spirit Cathedral in Accra.

Rev. Opuni-Frimpong said the week would be observed by leaders of various member churches of the Christian Council in all communities, districts and regional capitals.

He said this year’s National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving is on the theme: “Bind us together Oh Lord,” in order to facilitate our closer walk with God through national reconciliation and unity.

According to him, activities such as fasting, unity walk, prayer meetings for children, youth, women, men, Christian missions in Ghana, political parties, judiciary, indigenous businesses, legislature, government, economy, health, peace, stability, as wells security would be organized at all levels.

“It is our prayer that we will be faithful to this call to prayer, which would spur us into God’s abundant blessings as we unite and pray to Him,” he said.

The National Coordinator, however, called on all members of the clergy to seek for platforms in the media to pray for the nation during the week of Prayer and Thanksgiving.

He also urged all Christians to be part of the re-organized National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving.
