With the President’s announcement that social gatherings could resume at full capacity, Christians marked Good Friday in-person with various activities.
One such mammoth gathering was the Good Friday Miracle Service by Lighthouse Chapel International.
Hundreds of buses and thousands of people filled the Independence Square in Accra.
All available space was taken by the huge gathering comprised of people from all walks of life.
Led by some Bishops of Charismatic denominations, the multitude prayed for the nation Ghana, specifically for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Executive, the Legislature, the Judiciary and the people of Ghana.
Prayers were also offered for salvation of people in all nations.
A ten-thousand-member choir sang songs to mark the theme. The well-organised gathering witnessed record-breaking numbers in attendance at the Square, which is purported to be the world’s second biggest ‘city square’ after Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, an evangelist popular for his Healing Jesus Campaigns in Africa, preached a sermon on “The Mysterious Accomplishment of Jesus Christ”.
He opined that the gruesome ordeal God’s Son went through was to accomplish certain things; temptation, pressure, betrayal, sorrow and accusations to mention a few.
He stated that Christians should also go through these when following Christ.
The man of God prayed for the gathering and also prayed specifically for the sick to be healed.
Several people testified they had been healed of various ailments.
Christians believe that being saved is the basic truth of the Bible, made real by the central event of all history – the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Thousands were saved at the Independence Square on Good Friday.
