Apostle Professor Samuel Asuming-Brempong, the Chairman of the Great Commission Church International (GCCI), has called on Ghanaians to pray for a peaceful general election in November.

He said when Ghanaians pray, God would grant them the leadership that would carry the nation to another level.

Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong made the appeal at Ashaley Botwe near Accra, during the GCCI 2016 National Easter Convention.

The four-day convention, which coincides with the GCCI's silver jubilee celebration, was on the theme, “Celebrating 25 Years of Advancing the Great Commission: That I May Know Him”.

Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong entreated Ghanaians to pray for God’s mercy to come upon the nation; so that Ghana would continue to be peaceful and stable.

The Chairman said for the nation to develop, it would require that all and sundry, especially those in leadership positions, make a lot of sacrifices.

“If you are in a position, you should not think of self-aggrandizement or self-enrichment only for you and your family. But you should live a sacrificial life, so that those who are downtrodden would be relieved,” he said.

He said over 2000 years ago on Good Friday, God in His own wisdom, decided to sacrifice His only begotten son for the salvation of mankind, and therefore, Christians must be willing to make some sacrifices for the good of their neighbours; stating that “Be ready to sacrifice even unto death”.

He advised Christians to serve God with all humility and to emulate Jesus’ example of spiritual leadership; which is servant leadership.

Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong urged Christians to seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness; and all other things they desire would be added to it by their Heavenly Father.

GCCI was started in April 1991 on the campus of the University of Ghana, Legon, by seven founding ministers namely Apostles Joseph Felix Kwesi Mensah, Joseph Kwabena Antwi, Prof Asuming-Brempong, Komla Ebenezer Hagan, Samuel Vincent Ansah, Derek Sarpong and Richard Kwami Adanu.
