Ghana is our home. A land filled with much beauty and riches. From our coasts to our inlands, filled with varied natural resources that could leave you jaw-dropped and having a human resource that is both skilled and innovative. We are indeed blessed to have been given Ghana as our home. The beauty that encompasses us can all be given away to the ugliness of war and conflict if we do not stand up to defend the peace we are currently enjoying.
Today our ‘Peace Series’ is a call to prayer. There is the need for Ghanaians to rise up and pray for the peace of this nation without compromising. The stakes involved in this year’s election has caused an increase in political tension within the nation. Though we may have different political ideologies we must realize that we are one nation and one people.
Though there exists a lot of peace campaigns to raise awareness for peace in the country, of which our celebrities are partakers, there is the need to realize that true peace comes from God. God is the only one who provides peace without any trouble. A nation may seem to be at peace but that peace is not absolute- it is a peace offered by the world and not that offered by God.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” John 14:27 (NKJV)
We seek to enjoy the peace of God before, during and after our elections so there is the need to pray. A kind of peace that is void of trouble and fear- absolute peace. So when you wake up early in the morning to offer a sacrifice unto our Maker, do remember to intercede for our nation and when you say a prayer before you retire to bed do not forget to pray for our land. We will in one voice cry out to the Lord for the peace of this nation.
God bless you
