Ghana

Title: Ghana

Tier: 1

Type: country

Ghana has multiple ethnic groups and faiths, but it remains largely peaceful. Praise God! The education system and constitution brought together all ethnicities, and helped build a stable democracy. Almost half of Ghana’s college-educated citizens live abroad. This slows development and prosperity at home. Pray that government leaders might seek guidance from God, and not from human philosophies or the spirits.

Ghana

Title: Ghana

Tier: 1

Type: country

Ghana enjoys a rich Christian tradition! Many newer churches emerged, and many traditional denominations have a vibrant spiritual life. When churches multiply quickly, doctrines can become confused. Ghana has the blessing of many training institutions. Pray for mature leaders for the Church. 63% of Ghanaians call themselves Christian, but only about 10% attend church regularly. Traditional African practices present the greatest challenge to Christians. Pray for a clear break from all bondage to charms and the occult, and pray for true liberty in Jesus.
