The Christian associations in Ghana are launching a 7-Day Fasting and Prayer Session to pray to God and ask for His intervention to end the illegal mining menace that has bedevilled the state.
Following a visit to one of the sites last week to pray amid the singing of patriotic songs, the various associations are embarking on this journey of faith to curtail the canker since several interventions from the government could not end it.
The fasting and prayers is being organised by the Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Christian Council, the Catholic Bishops Conference, National Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches and all other Ecumenical bodies.
Various churches have started making announcement for its members to participate in the prayer and fasting as one sighted by OnuaOnline as stated below:
