Let your utterances on 31st Night Service edify the nation-Evangelist Tetteh

Accra- The Clergy have been reminded to exercise circumspection in their choice of words on the 31st Night Service so that their utterances do not divide the rank and file of the people, but rather edify the nation.

Evangelist Dr Lawrence Tetteh, the Founder and President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, who made the call when delivering his Christmas and New Year Message, said Ghana was one of the peaceful nations in the world with people from all walks of life living in peace and harmony.

Therefore, we should not take that for granted and strive hard to keep the flame of peace alive.

We have nowhere to go and so we don’t want to experience the unfortunate events that happened in our neighbouring nations, we should all play our role in making sure the peace is not disrupted, he added.

The world renowned Evangelist and an Honorary Canon of the Anglican Church encouraged the Clergy to continuously pray and intercede for the sustenance of the peace and stability of the nation.

He said all Ghanaians must be goodwill ambassadors for the nation and ambassadors of truth and wished the citizenry well in the coming year.

Evangelist Tetteh, also the Chaplain of the Ghana Christian Council of United Kingdom and Ireland, admonished the youth not to allow themselves to be used by any politician or political party to cause mayhem and destabilise the country in next year’s general elections.

We’re one people with one common destiny; therefore we should not allow politicians to divide us but rather strive very hard to unite as a people.

He entreated the youth to be vigilant and celebrate the Christmas festivities in moderation and refrain from any unacceptable behaviour and social vices that could derail their future.

We should use the birth of Jesus Christ as a point for reconciliation because Christmas is a time of joy to the world and so it should be a time of prayer, meditation and renewal of our faith in the Lord. he stressed.

Evangelist Tetteh said it behooved on all Ghanaians, irrespective of their political affiliation, ethnicity or religious inclination to be mindful of the choice of words during the electioneering campaign, in order not to ignite passion and tension.

He was of the conviction that the coming year held good tidings and blessings for the citizenry.

Evangelist Tetteh lauded all religious leaders in the country for the diverse roles they played in maintaining peace and tranquility in the country.
