4275mensah otabil I sense evil coming on Ghana in a month if… Dr Otabil Dr Mensa OtabilThe General Overseer of International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Anamua Otabil says he can sense evil befalling Ghana within the next one month if Christians do not wake up and pray for the country. "I have a sense of heaviness in my spirit concerning the destiny of this country that there is something heavy ready to fall upon this country that if we don't take charge of that we will be in a different state a month from now," he stated in his sermon to the congregation at Christ Temple on Sunday July 14, 2013.
Dr. Otabil's statement is not the first from a man of God concerning what could happen in this country this year, particularly as a result of the verdict from the ongoing presidential petition in the Supreme Court.
Dr. Otabil did not specifically mention that his heaviness has anything to do with the ongoing Supreme Court case, but he warned that Christians needed to rise up and pray otherwise the destiny of this country would change within a month.
He urged that the destiny of this country should not be left in the hands of politicians, presidents, parliamentarians, ministers, serial callers and political party communicators, but Christians should take charge of the country's destiny to ensure that the peace and prosperity of the country is secured.
Dr. Otabil called on Christians to learn from Elijah in the Bible, who prayed earnestly for the destiny of his country and made declarations, which came to pass because he prayed and spoke with divine authority.
"We need to take note that Elijah was just like us and he came from Tishbi, which is a village not found on any map till date - but because he prayed earnestly he was able to make a declaration about the destiny of his country and his declaration shaped the destiny of his country," he said.
On the back of that message, Dr. Otabil led his congregation in a passionate prayer for Ghana, after which he made even more passionate and positive declarations about the destiny of Ghana.
He screamed repeatedly: "We make these declarations - there shall be no civil war in Ghana…there will be no military takeover in Ghana…there will be no bloodshed in Ghana…there will be no coup d'etat…there will be peace in Ghana…the land shall have peace and rest…there will be prosperity in Ghana…abundance in the name of Jesus."
Dr. Otabil also charged all churches to pray that there will be no war in Ghana and that people will not be displaced and that the peace of God will continue to reign in Ghana.

Addressing the graduands, the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) and the President of the Living Word School of Ministry (LWSM), Rev. Dr. Mensa Otabil called on young ministers of the gospel to be committed to servicing others.
He posited that the calling of God upon the graduands by itself does not make them ready for effective ministry. They must necessarily go through training to prepare themselves for ministry.
He therefore prayed that what they had studied over the period would eventually help them to be useful in the Lord's vineyard. He also advised them to put into practice what they have learnt. The heart of a servant and the impact one should make on society are the two requirements for effective ministry, Dr. Otabil advised.
He cited David in the Bible as an example, adding that after he had killed Goliath and had become popular, he went back to the same job he was doing. He therefore entreated them to serve God with all knowledge, understanding and excellence since they have received all that it takes for one to become a better servant.
"Your life must make an impact on somebody's life. Somebody must become a better person because of you", he noted.
Dr. Otabil urged the graduands to be a people of service who would make an impact.
On his part, the Guest Speaker for the occasion, Rev Dr. Kwasi Addo Sampong, a Senior lecturer at the Central University College (CUC) implored the graduands not to let anyone or anything discourage them. He also urged them to set good examples for others to emulate.
"You have been trained to be scholarly in your approach to the world, and yet practical and compassionate in your approach to ministry. You have been trained to be a light where there is darkness and also use one ear to listen to God and the other ear to listen to your community", he added.
Rev Dr. Sampong also called on the graduands to pay attention to their ministry, gifts and the doctrines of Christ, adding that if they do these things, they would be relevant, effective and efficient ministers ready to confront the issues of the 21st century.
This year, the ministry graduated one hundred students, comprising sixty certificate students and forty diploma students from different denominational backgrounds.
The graduands were later commissioned by Dr. Otabil as he prayed that God would increase their capacity in wisdom, knowledge and understanding to serve their generation better.
