Catholic priest and head of Youth Evangelization in the Dioceses (YED), Rev Father Louis Cecilia Adu Poku says that Christians are no longer willing to pray for President Mahama due to Ghana's economic hardship.
According to him, congregants respond more positively to prayer topics relating to their personal interests other than to ask for wisdom and guidance for President John Mahama and his appointees.
“It is surprising to see that people are reluctant to pray for the President in the church which is non-political body. This is a church made up of people from various political divide, not a political rally. This is a church congregation which is a mixture of many political parties but when you ask them to pray, they are reluctant to pray," he revealed in an interview with Atinka FM.
The priest was reacting to the general hardship in the country where business had folded up, making life so unbearable for Christians to the extent that they don’t even have money for offertory. Meanwhile, government has made known its plans to provide jobs for unemployed youth especially as recent statistics show that closely fifty percent of university graduates in Ghana are without jobs.
