Prayers for Ghana:
As we offer our gifts to you, O God, remind us that they are but gifts you have provided to us for our daily needs. Often we grumble, particularly in this time of Covid-19 that has brought us to a wilderness full of questions and concerns. Yet, you remain among us, faithful and plentiful.
We remember those who heard your call to leave homes and comfort behind to journey to a land we now call Ghana. There they encountered hardships but in the Peki Valley, you led them to water. Here your Word flourished as living water to those who came seeking and asking to quench their thirst.
As we return our gifts, with thanksgiving, we also offer our prayers of thanks for those who continue to prepare new generations for ministry. May they bring the Word of living waters to the cities and villages of Ghana. AmenRead more

The semester comes to a close, and then comes the dreaded examination week. Dreaded by whom? The students dread exam week, but at least for this lecturer, it is a dreaded time as well. Well, maybe I should say the preparation of the examinations is the dreaded part.Read more
