 Listen to article A renowned International Evangelist, Dr Lawrence Tetteh, on Monday pleaded with President Akufo-Addo and the Coronavirus Task Force to review their stand on religious gathering. He admitted that although the world, including Ghana, was facing a dire situation due to the fast spreading COVID-19 infection across nations, the role of religious institutions, such as churches and mosques, were very crucial in providing psychological and physical solace, reassurance and education to their congregation in times like this.

Success is not imparted by laying-on of hands – Mensa Otabil

Written by | February 14, 2020 | 0
Founder and head pastor of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Mensa Otabil has sounded a word of caution to persons who go to see men of God for them to lay hands on them to excel in their endeavours. He observed that many people liked to skip the process of learning and toil to succeed simply because they had been blessed by anointed men of God. He cited Elisha and Joshua as two notable individuals in the Bible who laboured at the feet of their mentors before they graduated thus putting them in the pole position to succeed. “Success, excellence is not imparted by the laying on of hands. The pattern of the bible is very clear. You study somebody and then at the end he will lay hands on you, the laying hands on you is graduation. So, Elisha studied under Elijah for twenty years.

Written by | December 28, 2019 | 0
By Kennedy Adarkwa    Listen  It is possible to preach without being right with God. Preaching is person-to-person encounter. We can teach a Sunday school class or even witness to a lost person without being right with God. These are person-to-person encounters. Prayer, however, is a person-to-God encounter. It is an audience with one to whom all things are open and naked. We can’t fake it with Him. What we are when we are alone with God is what we are. It is “the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man” that avails much (James 5:16). Robert Murray McCheyene said, “What a man is in his prayer-closet is what he is.” No Christian is greater than his/her prayer life, and his/her prayer life can be no greater than his personal life (Ronald Dunn, Don’t Just Stand There
