    Background: A UNITED NON-DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH SERVICE OF PRAYER AND DEDICATION WAS HELD AT THE BLACK STAR SQUARE IN ACCRA TO ASK FOR GOD'S GUIDANCE FOR A SUCCESSFUL RETURN TO CIVILIAN RULE IN THE COUNTRY.

    THE SERVICE WAS ORGANISED BY THE CENTRE FOR CIVIC EDUCATION UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE ACCRA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES.

    THE SERVICE STATED WITH A PROCESSION BY CHORISTERS AND MINISTERS.

    PREACHING THE SERMON, THE PRESIDENT OF THE METHODIST CHURCH OF GHANA, THE REV. T.W. KOOMSON CALLED ON ALL POLITICAL LEADERS TO SEEK HELP FROM GOD AND NOT RELY UPON THEIR OWN INTELLIGENCE, SELF-SUFFICIENCY AND CAPABILITIES.

    HE SAID THAT ALL POLITICAL LEADERS MUST BE GOOD AND HONEST. HE ADDED THAT CHURCHES HAVE AN IMPORTANT ROLE TO PLAY BY SETTING AN EXAMPLE TO HOW TO LIVE IN HARMONY.
