The Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey, a former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, said Ghana needs men and women of substance and integrity to power the development of the nation.
He, therefore, urged the Government to enforce the laws of the country adding that “laws without enforcement are impotent. Our laws are toothless”.
The Former Moderator also charged leaders of the country to up their game in the protection of the environment and the citizens.
Rev. Prof. Martey said this during the Fifth National Intercessory Prayer Session organised in Accra by the Ladies of Substance International Network to mark Ghana’s 62nd Independence Anniversary.
He said God keeps His promises to those who obey Him, hence, Ghanaians should minimise the mistakes and live in the spirit to flourish in the land that God has given them.
The event aimed at committing the nation to God through prayers to seek His blessings in the bid to find solutions to the challenges facing the nation.
The National Prayer was on the theme: ”Prospering through Our Open Spaces”.
Mrs Abena Boamah Asare, the President of the Ladies of Substance, said: “When people pray good things happen to the nation, hence the need to allow God to rule in the affairs of the country.”
She said Ghana had been blessed with so much resources but she could make the best out of them through God’s guidance adding; ”This can only be done to prayers and hard work.”
“If God does not help a nation, its leaders cannot help, so it is time to cry out to God to stand in for the country”.
The Network is a non-governmental organisation of career persons leading women into Christian maturity and growth to positively affect their homes, communities and nation.
