Mr John Alexander Ackon, Ashanti Regional Minister has reminded Christians to revive their responsibility to pray for the peace of the nation and its leaders as the country goes into election this year.

"There is no doubt that the peace we enjoy as a nation is due to the grace of God and the unceasing intercession of the saints of God,” he said.

Mr Ackon expressed optimism that Ghana would survive and come out victorious in the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections, but added:“ Let us remember that the battle for peace is not yet over and it will take our prayers to ensure free and fair elections on December 7," he added.

Mr Ackon was addressing the National Prophetic Conference organised by the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) in Kumasi on the theme: “The overcoming Power of the last days." 

The conference is one of the major prayer festivals on the church’s calendar aimed at thanking God for His faithfulness, providence and protection over the church and the nation as a whole.

The event, attended by the congregation from the northern sector of the country comprising the Ashanti, Northern, Western Upper West and Upper East Regions is aimed at seeking the face of God and pray for blessings for the Church and the nation as a whole.

Mr Ackon challenged Ghanaians to let the power and the Grace of God shine in them, wait on Him in all situations and remain steadfast in the Lord.

He commended the National Executive Council of the CACI for organising the conference, which he said called on Christians to rededicate their lives to God.

Apostle Dr Stephen Kwame Amoani, Chairman of the CACI appealed to the political parties to work towards a peaceful election and also accept the election results to ensure national unity and peaceful co-existence.

"We are the people of one nation and therefore we must seek to promote peace at all times and in all endeavours, Apostle Amoani added.

Touching on the church in Ghana, Apostle Amoani asked ministers of the gospel to be deeply concerned about the negative developments in God's house because the results would bring an attack on the church and the persecution of individual Christians.

"There is a rising wave of ridicule, harassment of our faith and other atrocities because most Christians of today have allowed their priorities to be mixed up and compromised.

"It behooves us, to remain focused and ensure that we do all things possible not to make the church fall into apostasy," Apostle Amoani added.

In a speech read on his behalf, Baffuor Owusu Amankwatia VI, Bantamahene praised the church's intervention and prayers for the nation especially when Ghanaians are preparing to go for elections.

He urged Christians to continue praying during and after the elections to ensure successful electioneering and a peaceful election.

The Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party Mr Antwi Bosiako and a team from his party also joined the congregation to pray for a peaceful election.

Apostle Michael Nimo, Former Chairman of the Church led the congregation to pray for the nation and her leaders and national prosperity.

Topics discussed at the one week conference attended by thousands of worshipers included “signs of the last days, understanding the present times, overcoming the last days affliction through prayers of faith and upholding the believer's light of success".
