President Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday worshipped with the Glorious Word Power Ministry International. He thanked the Church's founder Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah, for his ‘spiritual’ role in the 2016 elections.

Addressing the congregation, President Akufo-Addo said he knew he was fighting against evil forces during the election, saying what kept him going was  that he believed 'the battle was the Lord's."


"In the just ended elections, we knew that we were fighting with powers and Principalities. In spite of this however, there was one thing that kept coming to me and that is the fact that the battle was the Lord’s. Going forward we all need to pray very hard that the change we all want will happen in our country,” he said.

Visiting the church for the first time since he became President, Akufo-Addo said he was delighted to join them [the congregation], adding that the timing of his visit was ordained by God.

"I am to happy to be here. I should have been here earlier, but God ordained it for me to come at this time. You should know it was God who made me come here at this time as the President of Ghana…  It is important that we fervently pray for the change we are desiring. I know one of the religious leaders who will champion this cause of change is Rev Owusu Bempah,” he said.

Rev Bempah, who prayed fervently for the president during the 2016 election, presented a Bible and horn to him as gifts.

"This is the Bible, and this Nana is a horn, when you read the Bible, it is referred to as the “horn of unicorn”, it represents the strength and power of God which God has instructed that I give to you”, he said as he presented the gift to the President.
