|President J.E.A Mills|| |
President John Atta Mills yesterday joined Muslim worshippers at the Abossey Okai Central Mosque in Accra to offer prayers and thanks- giving to Allah for his goodness to Ghana in its 54 years of independence.
“No one can deny the fact that the Good Lord has blessed us with abundant resources, wisdom, knowledge and the wherewithal to develop the resources,” President Mills said after the prayers.
The Muslim prayers formed part of the National Week of Prayer and Thanksgiving, institutionalized under the Mills’ Administration, to thank God for his goodness in granting the nation independence and sustaining the country peacefully.
It also formed part of the national Independence Day celebrations for which Ghana had its 54th last week on the theme: “Discipline and hard work - Essential Pre-requisites for a Better Ghana.”
President Mills used the occasion to urge Ghanaians to aim at the ultimate objective to use their abilities to the service of God and country.
He emphasized prayer with the Maker so that communication with him would not be lost.
“Let’s pray, let’s pray without ceasing, so that we may not lose the channel of communication between us and our Maker,” President Mills said.
He gave thanks to Allah for his mercies and love, and the removing of obstacles, and focus on the direction he had given to the nation.
President Mills commended the Islamic faithful for heeding the call for prayers.
