This past weekend, a group of Christian leaders from the Eastern Region went on a tour of many illicit mining sites (Galamsey). Nana Aba Anamoah has used this chance to say bad things about what these Christian leaders have done.
It was said that the clerics went to the places to pray to God for help stopping the threat that was putting Ghana’s water bodies and forest reserves in danger.
In a video that has gone viral on the internet, a clergyman can be heard stating, “We pray that our people will humble themselves and change from our sinful ways… heal our land and save us, heal our nation.”
The journalist went on Twitter to express her dismay that the pastors had not used their “common sense” to protect the environment after she had watched the video.
“They toured galamsey sites and later prayed to God for an end to the devastation. Dear God, don’t mind them. Okay? They know the people behind the destruction. Kindly direct them to those characters. Praise the Lord,” read Nana Aba’s tweet.
She said that the intercessory prayer was a lazy way to deal with the issue and that God wouldn’t do a miracle because he gave us brains to think.
“Common sense is the ability to see, hear and understand things, and then make decisions that are common to most people without the need for PRAYERS!!
“To the ‘men of God’ who toured the galamsey sites and prayed to God to end the devastation. Read this LOUDL: God will not do by miracle, what he has blessed us brains to do.”

God will not do by miracle, what he has blessed us brains to do.
In the meantime, the Christian Ecumenical Bodies of Ghana have refuted accusations that members of the clergy went to the galamsey locations in order to pray against the illegal threat.
According to reports, the men of God undertook a fact-finding journey in order to have a better understanding of the situation and determine how they may most effectively contribute their share toward reducing the threat.
