Veteran Ghanaian gospel singer professionally known as Great Ampong has argued about the relevance of long prayers in tongues as practiced by most Charismatic churches.
According to the ‘Akoko Funu’ hitmaker, it’s needless to pray for long hours in tongues because no human can force to God to do his or her will for him or her.

During an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye, the ‘Style Bia Bi’ crooner said some Christians make it look like God will only bless you unless you shout and pray like a madman.
“God decides on His own to bless those that He wants to bless and it’s not about your long prayers so when you wake up in the morning just pray to thank God,”
“Which mother in this world will only give her hungry children food to eat unless after they have prayed for hours in tongues, cried or shouted for their needs?
“Sometimes some Christians and pastors make it look like God is so wicked and if you want something from Him unless you suffer and perish before God will answer your prayers,”
Great Ampong‘s submission and opinion about long prayers have ignited a hot conversation piece on the internet.
According to believers in lengthy prayers, praying for long hours is very good because it helps one to grow spiritually.
Others also seem to agree with Great Ampong’s remarks.
