Ghanaians do not seem to be upbeat regarding the call for a 72-hour fasting and prayer by Presiding Archbishop and General Overseer of the Action Chapel International, Nicholas Duncan-Williams.
The Archbishop on Sunday, told his congregation that Ghanaians needed to fast for God to intervene in the hardship the country is currently facing.
Listeners of Starr FM’s flagship show Morning Starr on Tuesday shared their views concerning Ghana’s current economic hardships and the call for divine intervention by the popular preacher.
Below is a compilation of some of the text messages of listeners of the show on Tuesday
Williams who resides in Koforidua said that the Rosetta stone that would help uplift Ghana from the economic doldrums it finds itself in is not unremitting prayers. But hard work and wise economic decisions.
“If prayer is the cure for economic malaise, the Vatican City would be the most powerful nation on earth”, he said.
Others were of the view that for prayer to work, there had to be attitudinal change.
Kwame Amoah said “as human beings we can’t deny the spiritual aspect of life. However, we seem to think that all our problems can be solved through prayers only. For instance, we pray for good health but how do we handle our environment? What do we do after praying? Prayers should make us believe that when we work hard it will yield result”.
“For me praying and fasting this government is waste of time. The truth need to be told to government to stop reckless misusing of tax-payers money.
How can we pray meanwhile their attitudes have not changed? The Europeans don’t only pray they act. So the corruption must stop now”, Ebenezer added.
Meanwhile, Renowned sociologist Dr. Nana Obiri Yeboah on Monday urged the Archbishop to turn his church into a factory if he wants to salvage the struggling Ghanaian economy.
He told Starr News’ Atiewin Mbillah Lawson that if the renowned bishop is really serious about solving the country’s dwindling economic fortunes and currency, he should, without hesitation, convert his church into a factory, since that will bring about more productivity.
Morning Starr airs on Starr 103.5 FM, at 6am to 10am on weekdays, and is hosted by Francis Abban.
