The senior pastor of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil, has advised followers to plan effectively towards the New Year.
On his Facebook page, Dr Otabil wished all Ghanaians well making a case for Christians to stay very close to God if indeed they wish for blessings and favour.
“I pray that the God who protected and preserved your life will take you into the New Year,” Dr Otabil advised. According to Mensa Otabil, “as you enter 2018, plan and expect a mighty move of God in your life”.
The message by Mensa Otabil follows the known culture of most Ghanaian salaried workers running out of cash during the beginning of the year.
Meanwhile, New Year’s eve is being earmarked by most Christian churches as an opportunity to stay awake to usher in the New Year.
This moment also sees most Churches embark on massive watch night services.
In the case of ICGC, the church pulls in thousands of crowds at the Accra Sports Stadium as believers pray and thank God for the end of 2017 and also the beginning of 2018.
