The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced a nationwide fasting and prayer campaign for the Black Stars ahead of their participation in the Qatar World Cup in 2022.
This is part of a series of activities aimed at preparing the senior national team for the upcoming tournament.
According to a schedule released by the local football governing body, the spiritual activity will last two days, beginning on Friday, October 21, 2022.
On Friday, Islamic prayers will be said for the team, followed by Christians fasting and interceding for the team on Sunday, October 23, 2022.
The two-day prayers will be preceded by two separate, ‘rep your jersey’ events.
The events will culminate with a ‘Dinner with the Legends’ on Saturday, October 29, 2022.
Meanwhile, scores of Ghanaians on social media have questioned the significance of the Black Stars’ scheduled prayers.
Instead of the announced fasting and prayers, they believe that the team’s authorities and managers should focus more on developing the physical capacities of the players.
Others, on the other hand, have praised the initiative, claiming that it is prudent for the country to seek divine intervention ahead of the team’s participation in this year’s World Cup.
Ghana’s participation in the FIFA World Cup fiesta in 2022 will be the country’s fourth appearance in the global football event.
The stars dazzled football fans with their performances against other competitors in the 2006 and 2010 campaigns.
However, the team’s previous campaign in 2014 was a failure, which caused concern among fans.
Ghanaians are therefore optimistic about the upcoming tournament, which begins in November.
