The two, home-based, are among four safest pair of hands named in Ghana's provisional 30-man squad but one will have to be chopped off by head coach Milovan Rajevac in the final 23-man squad.
Ahorlu of Heart of Lions helped his side seal a fourth place berth in the Ghana Premier League and Adams conceded ten goals as Aduana Stars clinched the league title.
"They cannot take four goalkeepers to the World Cup and one has to drop and to me I pray to God almighty that I will be with the 23 and my friend Stephen Adams will also make it," Ahorlu told Joy FM.
Liberty Professionals youngster Daniel Adjei is also named in the initial squad and has a chance of making it.
The 20-year-old won the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.
