Ghana declares ‘national day of fasting and prayer’ ahead of World Cup


The Black Stars will hold a ‘national day of fasting and prayer’ as part of their pre-World Cup activities.

The schedule was shared by the Ghana national soccer team, The Black Stars, through their official Twitter page with a list of activities to take place before the World Cup.

As today is 31 days (one month) until the showpiece in Qatar, Ghana has stepped up their preparation for the tournament which they qualified for at the expense of Nigeria.

Two dates have been set aside for Ghanaians to fast and pray for the Black Stars ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, regardless of faith.

Friday 21 October is the day selected for Islam as Ghanaian Muslims are encouraged to fast and pray within the limits of their religion for the national team.

Sunday 23 October is the day marked out for Christians, who are also expected to do the same, fasting and praying for the Black Stars ahead of their FIFA World Cup adventure.

A total of seven activities leading up to the World Cup have been announced, including the aforementioned fasting and prayer dates for Muslims and Christians.

There are two ‘Represent Your Ghana Shirt’ days on the event list, one for the presidency and one for the general public.

After fasting and prayers, Saturday October 29 has been designated as ‘national team day’.

National team day will feature a ‘walk with the legends’ from Ayi Mensah to the top of Aburi Hill at 6am.

The list closes with a ‘dinner with the legends’ scheduled for 6:00 pm on the same day at the East Legon event center.
