The people of Dormaa in the Brong Ahafo Region has observed this year’s national Independence Day celebrations in the District.
Peace, Security and Stability within your borders, oh! Ghana (Psalm 122:6-8): was the theme chosen for the National, Regional and Districts Week of Prayer, Fasting and Thanksgiving Service to climaxed activities marking the 55th Independence Day Anniversary nationwide, this year.
In a special interdenominational church service to end the special week of Prayer, Fasting and Thanksgiving in Dormaa, the chairman of the Local Council of Churches, Rev. John Felix Yeboah last Sunday, called on all Ghanaian to devote attention and responsibility in their daily activities in the interest of Ghana’s stability.
He stated that the stability of this country lies not in the hands of foreigners but in that of Ghanaians and therefore the desire for national peace, should not remain in the mere proclamation or alien expectations and polices.
The Rev Yeboah said fasting, prayer and thanksgiving if alienated from tolerance, parity, unity, and respect for different opinions will not mount up to any results, rather prayer and fasting can only evoke God to provide Ghana with everlasting prosperity and protection backed by true repentance and forgiveness.
Rev Yoboah who was the main speaker spoke about the spirit of tolerance and cautiousness on the part of the media as key to the stability within and on the borders of the country. He also cautioned parents to make time with their children so they can guide them to be responsible citizenry.
The Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Vincent Oppong Asamoah, pleaded with the people of Dormaa to shun temperament or activity that can mar the current democracy of the nation, especially, during this election year.
He said Ghana has come far and advised that Ghanaians should not have any tangible excuse to trade this development for any worthless moves.
Present at the service held at the Schaefer Presbyterian Church were Pastors of the local council of churches, assembly members, staff of the assembly and others.
Prayers were said for peaceful elections and against the increasing number of road accidents, fire outbreak and other disasters.
The Schaefer band, Methodist sing group and other singing groups treated the congregation with inspirational songs.
