Rt. Rev. Dr Setorwu Ofori, Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, has urged Ghanaians to pray fervently for the nation to enjoy peace before, during and after the 2016 elections.

He said “if we want the country to change and to continue to live in peace, there is the need for every Ghanaian to pray for the nation intensively and also bring the Word of God to everyone.”

The moderator was preaching on the theme: “The Bible, guide to Godly leadership” to mark the 2016 Bible Week Celebration nationwide at the Fountain of Glory Assemblies of God Church, West Legon, in Accra recently.

He said Christians must not relent in their efforts to use the Bible since it transformed the individual’s life and that of others.

Rev. Dr Ofori said though written on paper like other books, the Bible could not be compared to any book because it was inspired by God and was the most powerful transformational tool for Christians.

The Bible was inspired by God; God used human minds, human hands to say what He wants us to know. The Word of God (the Bible) carries power; it carries authority; it moves the lives of people and brings transformation,” he stressed.

The moderator said Jesus had set the example for true leadership and teamwork which the country could draw from His example to bring about Godly leadership as Christians demonstrated that the Word of God was the foundation.

Rev. Dr Emmanuel Anim, member of the National Council of the Bible Society of Ghana, said the theme for the Bible Week celebration was relevant as the country prepared for the 2016 elections to choose leaders to lead her for the next four years.

“The nation can never experience true transformation until we begin to realise that it is God who calls leaders and ask them to be selfless examples to others,” he said.
