The Superintendent Minister of the Wesley Methodist Cathedral, Kumasi, the Very Rev. Christopher Nyarko Andam, has advised the inmates of the prisons to pray to God for true repentance when they finish serving their terms in prison.
He stressed that the predicament in which they found themselves should not be seen as the end of their lives.
The Very Rev. Andam gave the advice in a sermon delivered at a church service organised for the inmates of the Kumasi Central Prison when he led a congregation of the Wesley Methodist Cathedral to pay a visit to the prison.
He cited the instance in the Holy Bible when Joseph was imprisoned but later turned out to become one of the best personalities in society.
He stressed that Daniel was also put in the lions’ den but he was released by God, emphasising that God was the only saviour.
He noted that many of the prisoners who came out of the Nsawam Prison were now pastors and urged the prisoners to refrain from acts that could jeopardise their lives or compound their problems when they came out of prison.
The Very Rev. Andam, on behalf of the church, presented food items, including 16 bags of rice, three bags of gari, six cartons of second-hand clothing, toilet rolls and mouth wash to the inmates.
The Chaplain of the Kumasi Central Prison, Rev. Fr Martin Padi, on behalf of the inmates, thanked the Wesley Methodist Cathedral for the assistance and assured the church that the items would be put to good use.
The inmates, using their band, entertained the congregation.
