Security Services Hold National Day of Prayer

The Annual Security Services National Day of Prayer has been held at the Garrison Methodist Presbyterian Church (GMPC), Burma Camp on Thursday 21 October 2021.

The national day of prayer which was under the theme, “Incline your ears to our cry, O’ God, hear our prayers and heal our land”, was to bring together personnel of the security services to pray for the country and its leadership.

Brigadier General Mike Akpatsu (rtd), President of Ghana Military Christian Fellowship (GMCF) in his remarks, said security personnel were the watchmen of the country and needed to call on the name of Yahweh to have mercy on them.

He added that in three successive years, the GMCF has collaborated with the Directorate of Religious Affairs and the Gideons International to hold intercessory prayer for the nation.

Rev Capt (GN) Paul Adjei-Djan Director Religious Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) in his welcome address stated that prayer was the key to opening all doors and opportunities. He said the beginning of mankind does not matter but his end, and added that for the end to be good, one must consult the maker.

Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) Vice Admiral Seth Amoama, who was the Guest of Honour, thanked God for a successful conduct of the National Day of Fasting and Prayer. He said Ghana was noted as an oasis of peace and tranquility and advised all to be vigilant in order for the country to continue to be peaceful. He also urged Christians to stand united and lift up the nation before the throne of God.
