I’m forming a powerful prayer team for Nana Addo right away – Rev Owusu-Bempah...
The founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministry International, Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah says he is establishing a team of prayer warriors in his church for President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The man of God has been the toast of several persons after Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei declared Nana Addo winner of the December 7, 2016 elections.
Nana polled 53.85 percent of valid votes cast to beat his main competitor, President John Mahama who secured 44.40 of valid votes cast.
President Mahama’s defeat makes him the first incumbent to lose an election since Ghana returned to multi-party democracy in 1992.
Months to the elections, Rev Owusu-Bempah prophesied victory for the septuagenarian who has seen his quest to ascend the highest office of the land hit a snag on two occasions.
Persons who were not aligned to the NPP cause vilified him for claiming victory for Nana Addo.
“I have promised a couple of times that Nana Addo will win this year’s election but people keep insulting and accusing me but I will say it again that winning power this time is a done deal for Nana Addo because the people are fed up” he stated at the time.
And with Nana Addo becoming President with a landslide victory over incumbent President Mahama, the man of God said he is set to assemble a team of prayer warriors whose sole duty would be to pray for the man he described as ‘one after God’s heart’.
“We have dedicated ourselves to praying seriously for Nana Addo and the NPP. We are even building a prayer team which would be praying 24/7 for Nana Addo and the ministers he will choose...,” he said.
The decision, he said is in line with what was done by other prophets for kings who were after God’s heart in the Bible.
He further said that the congregation in his church increased significantly on the first Sunday after Nana Addo’s victory as his over 2000 capacity auditorium.
Gospel Musicians, Nicholas Omane-Acheampong and Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong, he added were at his church to lead praises and worship to God for letting his words come to pass.
The increasing number, he said gave him the signal that there was the need to expand their auditorium.
