Ghanaians are fasting and resorting to prayers on Wednesday over the coronavirus pandemic.

The country’s President declared Wednesday a day of fasting and prayers with the hope that God would spare Ghana and the world of the crisis.

President Nana Akufo Addo last week met some religious leaders for a short prayer session and declared that God would surely hear the cries of Ghanaians and provide a redemption.

He said in a speech over the weekend that “Whilst we continue to adhere to these measures and ramp up our efforts to defeat this virus, I urge all of us also to seek the face of the Almighty.

So on Wednesday, 25th March 2020, I appeal to all Ghanaians – Christians and Muslims to observe a national day of fasting and prayer. Let us pray to God to protect our nation and save us from this pandemic.”
