A non-denominational all-night service was held in Accra last Friday to thank God for his blessing of peace on the nation after the Supreme Court had given its judgement on the 2012 presidential election petition.
Dubbed “12-Hour Prayerthon 2013”, the service was jointly organised by the Graphic Communications Group Limited and Multi TV.
As a prelude to the 12-hour Prayerthon, midnight prayers were said on August 28 and August 29, 2013 to ask God to grant the nation peace during and after the judgement.
