- He noted that it seems the coronavirus has come to stay and until a cure is found, it has to be lived with.
The General Overseer of the Action Chapel International Ministry, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has called for prayers to apprehend the vicious corononavisus to prevent it from spreading in an exclusive interview with Paul Adom-Otchere on Metro TV's Good Evening Ghana programme.
According to him, prayers must also be offered to stop the number of COVID-19 infections from spiking, arrest the fear the virus is posing, and also deal with the uncertainty the virus brings.
These he said are not things politicians and scientists can address.
He debunked the assertion that the leadership of the clergy signed a document presented to the President for him to review the closure of churches because they have missed receiving tithes from their members.
According to him, it was a proposal on how churches are to operate and observe the safety protocols in the event that the churches are allowed to reoperate.
He suggested that until churches are allowed to reoperate, there should be some form of provision that allows believers in every community in the nation and other nations to gather in fives and tens to pray, while observing the safety protocols to the letter.
He noted that it seems the coronavirus has come to stay and until a cure is found, it has to be lived with.
He also said that there is the need for mental adjustment and the virus confronted with boldness.
He questioned whether people have to stay home for the fear of dying and added that he believes one could stay home and still contract the virus.
