Religion in Ghana encompasses a wide variety of beliefs with Christianity taking a firm lead as statistics show that over 70 percent of the Ghanaian population are Christians. The heightening of Christianity has since expanded from traditional Catholicism to a new wave of Protestant Reformation which has seen the birth of thousands and millions of Charismatic churches in Ghana.
One of the avenues most churches focus to expand and see the proper growth of their church is through the establishment of prayer camps. Indeed!! There are quite a number of them in the country such as Edumfa Prayer and Abasua Prayer Camp. Okanta Prayer camp is no exception. This is where Christians converge to seek the presence of God to listen to their prayers, and solve their problems in times of loss of hope, severe mental or physical pain, or better still suffering.
Okanta Prayer Camp is arguably one of the best within the country for Christian folks. Let’s delve into how Okanta Prayer camp came into existence and what they stand for.
Okanta prayer camp is undoubtedly one of the most visited prayer camps in the country founded by Prophet Mintah of the Church of Pentecost. The prayer camp is reported to host up to 10,000 congregants on a monthly and annual basis. It is a faith-healing centre that is highly patronized by some famed people in the country including Reverend Ministers, Pastors, Prophets, Business Executives, Chief Executive Officers, Renowned Musicians, Traders, Students, the Sick and those under any form of spiritual bondage.
