Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that Ghana’s economic crisis has had an impact on church offerings collected.
Mr. Mahama claimed that Christians are unable to make large offerings in church due to economic hardship, which has impacted Ghanaians’ pockets.
He was speaking at the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Ho’s 175th-anniversary thanksgiving service.
“We must always spread Christian love, especially in this time, when money doesn’t like noise. Especially at this time when we all agree that times are hard. This is the time we must show our Christian charity by loving our neighbours as ourselves.
“And so whatever little you have to share, you should share with your neighbour. I mean we could tell the hardship in the system from the appeal for funds.
As a result, Mr Mahama has asked Christians to pray for him and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to win the 2024 general elections.
“After we pray for Pakistan, Moderator should also say a special prayer for me and for the NDC so that in some year that is just coming, luck will smile on us, God will smile on us and give us the power to come and rescue this country from the suffering we are going through,” he said.
Rt. Okay Rev Dr Lt. Col. Bliss Divine Agbeko (Rtd), Moderator of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Ghana, advised Christians to remain righteous followers of Christ and persevere to the end.
