According to the preacher, who is the General Overseer of the Action Chapel International Ministry, Christians would be able to drive away the coronavirus with violent intercessory prayers if allowed to congregate.
Duncan-Williams was speaking to Metro TV when he made the comments lobbying the President to reopen the churches.
Quoting the Bible verse ‘do not exempt yourself or do not stay away from the assembling of yourselves together . . . especially as you see the day of the Lord approaching’ to buttress his point, the preacher said: “There’s something about the gathering of believers and I’m not talking about thousands . . . no, I’m saying that we should look at this very carefully because they’re so many activities going on all over the place…”
“Believers should be allowed in every community across the nations of the world and in Ghana here, to meet two, three times a day to pray and I’m saying small groups here like five here, ten here, fifteen here, twenty here all over the country,” he said.
According to him, these meetings would be to ‘pray and arrest’ the situation and would not be about any financial obligation.
At the moment the President has remained steadfast on not reopening churches but the pressure continues to come from pastors all across the country.
