Accra, 17 March, 2021 / 1:32 pm (ACI Africa).
Christian leaders in the West African nation of Ghana have organized an ecumenical prayer service on Sunday, March 21 aimed at seeking God's intervention against homosexual tendencies, an official involved in organizing the event has told ACI Africa.
Set to be held at Burma Camp in Ghana’s Archdiocese of Accra, the prayer service has been organized by officials of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC), the National Association of Charismatic, and Christian Churches, among other Christian bodies in the country.
“We want to seek God’s intervention in this matter which is beyond human understanding,” the Executive Secretary of GCBC’s Department of Social Communication (DEPSOCOM), Fr. Dieu-Donné Kofi Davor, told ACI Africa Wednesday, March 17.
Making reference to homosexual tendencies in the West African country, Fr. Kofi added, “This thing has come up to satisfy human needs and not the will of God but we believe that with God’s intervention, we will have a headway.”
“We look forward to being guided by His love in all this because if that is not the purpose, it is not right,” the Ghanaian Cleric further said, adding that the planned ecumenical prayer service whose theme is, “Homosexuality: A Detestable Sin to God,” is also “a sign of unified force” against homosexual tendencies and practice.
