Mobilising, training and equipping Christians for prayer

The situation in South Africa is at a critical point. A motion of no confidence has been brought against President Jacob Zuma. Whether a secret ballot on this motion in parliament on 8 August 2017 will be allowed or not, some individuals will be unhappy and many may resort to protests that could turn violent.  Let us unite in prayer and ask God to have mercy on the nation. Let us pray for God’s plan and purpose for the nation to prevail, for Him to awaken the consciences of the people in South Africa and especially Government leaders.

GOD’S PROMISEIsaiah 55:11 –So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
PRAYER: Father, we confess that our nation is not walking in your ways. We all do what seems to be right in our own eyes and neglect truth, righteousness and justice. We pray for Your will to be made known to us, for your grace to help us to turn from our wicked ways and that your mercy will triumph over judgment. Destroy the plans and purposes of the wicked men and women in our nation who instigate anger, hatred, violence, anarchy and destruction. Protect all our leaders and civilians, our streets and property.

 Father, we pray for Your truth to prevail and that You will expose everything which the enemy uses to pervert justice and blind us from seeing the truth.
