“We as a nation are facing a national crisis, with lots of difficulties and hardships and in these times we must proclaim a fast,” Archbishop Duncan Williams said on Sunday.
The General Overseer of the Action Chapel International Ministry proclaimed the 72-hour fasting and prayer for the country because, according to him, that is what some leaders have done in similar situations.
The man of God told the congregation of his megachurch that the fast will start on Monday, October 1 2018, confident that God will intervene,
“Leaders who believe in God and recognise in times of national crisis that human capability and intelligence and logic and philosophy can do, but so much, and can go but so far…and recognise and call upon God’s intervention to overturn national crisis…I proclaim by the voice of the blood of Jesus this 72 hour fast from Monday…..of the month of October….let the fast be proclaimed and let heaven and earth bear witness and let heaven intervene in the affairs of this country and overturn the suffering and the hardship and difficulties and crisis we face as a nation and a people,” Archbishop Duncan Williams proclaimed.
In 2014, the Archbishop led his congregation to pray for God to halt the depreciation of the cedi against the US dollar and other major trading currencies.
He was criticised by sections of the public including top government officials at the time who described the act by the Archbishop as “comic relief.”
