Spending long man hours in churches: prayer is the key, but we must balance it with hardwork-Rev. Dr. Opuni

The immediate past General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Reverend Dr. Kwabena Opuni Frimpong has bemoaned the culture in the country in which people spend productive and man hours in churches praying for miracles, saying even though prayer is the key to every good thing in life, it must be balanced with hardwork.

He lampooned pastors and prophets who continuously use the scripture to confuse and exploit their following, impoverishing them in the process.

According to Dr. Opuni Frimpong, the backwardness of the country is not attributable to only politicians ,but whack and quack pastors and prophets who do not care about the welfare of their following but only interested in rather fleecing them of their hard earned money.

‘’Pastors who keep people in the churches for long hours are not serious because spending the whole day in church praying will not put food on the table. It is hardwork and that is why any pastor who doesn’t teach his following or congregation to work hard, be punctual at work and to cultivate a savings culture is not a proper man of God’’ he said on an Accra based radio station and monitored by BestNewsGH.com.

Dr. Opuni Frimpong continued ‘’the public and civil servants must also by themselves understand that they have been given a task to perform, based on which they are paid with the taxpayers’ money, so they must be punctual to work and also adhere to the ethics of whichever profession they find themselves. They must adhere to good governance practices.’’

He is of the view that men of God must endeavor to be a part of the lives of their congregants by teaching, guiding and mentoring them rather than exploiting them with anointing oil, holy water, handkerchiefs and stickers.
