Although Ghana cannot be said to be an all Christian country, the Christians dominate with about 6O of her population. This percentage includes all religious orders that preach Jesus Christ as the Messiah and believes in the ideology of the Trinity that is: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Christians are grouped under three major categories by their way of worship. These are: a) The Orthodox Churches b) The Pentecostals c) The Spirituals Under these categories are several churches which have their different beliefs and rules which make up the fundamentals of a church. However, one key factor which all Christians believe in is Prayer - To communicate with the Almighty God, the Divine, Unseen Spirit. The act of Prayer, and the level of importance, in terms of time devoted and composure towards it may differ from church to church or individual to individual. They all have their meaningful interpretations to the verse “The fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” That is to say, no matter how or when you pray, the most important thing is that you prayed fervently. At this point, it should be stated clearly that no judgement is passed on how one went about his/her prayer.
