LCC Urges President Weah …Calls For Three Days National Fast And Prayer

The president of the Liberia Council of Churches, Bishop Kortu K. Brown, has called on President Weah to regularly brief the nation on the current state of affairs during this time of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Bishop Brown made the statement over the weekend during his weekly interview at his Brewerville Office.
He said it is important at this time for the President to regularly speak to his people to give them hope during this time of the deadly Coronavirus outbreak.
“He can decide to either do it weekly or bi-weekly, but it is important to do so because this will give hope to the nation. The Ministry of Health and the team from NPHIL are doing well on the health issues, but there are other issues that need to be addressed by the government including the price of major commodities, transportation fares, gasoline and other economic issues that are outside of the mandate of the health team,” Bishop Brown stated.
He further called on the government to start working on the issues of the suffering masses, how to help those marketers who live on the daily hand-to-mouth hustle.
Meanwhile, the Liberia Council of Churches has called for a national three-day fast and prayer for the nation beginning this Wednesday to be climaxed on Friday, which is Good Friday.
The Liberia Council of Churches’ President said the prayer will be individually done wherever you are as a Christian to fast and pray for the three days asking God to have mercy on Liberia and the World.
In closing, Bishop Brown urged all Church leaders to work along with the government to fight the deadly outbreak.
He then encouraged Liberians to continue to abide by all the preventive measures laid out by the Ministry of Health and the NPHIL by avoiding contacts and doing regular hand washing.
“We all need to be positive in fighting against the virus and forget about complaining. We did it against Ebola and we can still do it against the Coronavirus,” he concluded.
