The Reverend Patrick Hans Avettey, Chairman of the Takoradi Presbytery, has called on the clergy to be bold and condemn the upsurge of corrupt practices and stealing in the public sector, which he said is killing the nation.
He noted that the phenomena are an indictment on the clergy and therefore it is time for them to speak out.
Rev Hans Avettey made the call in Cape Coast at a prayer festival organised by the Global Evangelical Church of the Takoradi Presbytery to pray for the sustenance of peace for Ghana and sub-Saharan Africa and to marshal the congregation into the New Year.
The prayer festival which brought together hundreds of congregants from Western, Central and some part of Ivory Coast was on the theme: “Walking with God the Holy Spirit.”
He called on Ghanaians to be content with what they have and shun acquiring wealth through corrupt practices.
Rev Hans Avettey urged the citizenry to work hard for the progress of the nation, adding that the labour unions must have laid down procedures for dealing with their grievances rather than resorting to demonstrations and strikes which do not build the nation.
He called on all to do away with their political and religious differences to live in peace and harmony and work in concert to attain the desirable development.
Rev Hans Avettey blamed parents for doing little to instill Christian morals in their children to complement the efforts of the Church..
Pastor Paa Quecy Adu, Head Pastor of Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Sakumono branch, admonished Christians to be thankful to the Lord for His mercies and protection throughout the year and to be mindful of false prophets.
He asked Christians to pray without ceasing, put their faith and trust in the Lord and live in humility.
