Ebola prayers for West Africa

The Primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa has asked Christians to observe one Sunday as “Ebola Sunday” and to pray for God’s blessing and healing of those afflicted by the deadly haemorragic fever that has killed almost 2000 in Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Guinea. In an 18 August 2014 interview with the Anglican Communion News Service the Most Rev. Daniel Sarfo asked Anglicans to “challenge their governments to send resources, especially medical supplies to the affected areas.” Dr. Sarfo supported the recent decision by the Primate of Nigeria, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh to limit the use of a common cup in favor of intinction, “or best by using individual small cups.”  He noted that “in Ghana, a lot of education about the prevention of the disease is going on from the Government through the Ministry of Health and Church facilities of which the Anglican Church has quite a number.”
