A call has gone out to Karoo prayer warriors to join the seven-day, 24/7 prayer countdown from 6pm on Thursday (April 19) to the official start of the Karoo Mighty Men at 6pm on Friday (April 27).
The KMMC has been soaked in prayer for months and organisers plan to increase the prayer tempo over the final stretch by maintaining round-the-clock intercession on the farm Renosterfontein, near Middelburg, which is the venue for the event.
The goal is for groups of intercessors to take turns praying on the farm during the countdown period, says Ruthi van der Merwe, one of the organisers.
“We do realise that it will not be possible for everybody to come and pray on the farm, so people can still participate in the intercession by booking slots with me, and then they can pray in their towns. We really want to involve as many other towns as possible because we believe we are busy with something much bigger than the Mighty Men weekend. We are busy, as Christians, joining hands with one another to form a network of light that is not only countrywide but worldwide. I am tremendously excited by what is busy taking place in our country,” she said.
The Karoo MMC prayer countdown will take place against a backdrop of much intensive prayer activity throughout South Africa in churches, in prisons, in prayer networks and in small groups: with much of the prayer focused on revival. Indeed, Karoo MMC prayer convenor, Dave Turner, has said that the aim of the KMMC prayer campaign has always been to prepare the ground for all aspects of the Mighty Men weekend, and for revival and transformation in South Africa.
Anybody interested in participating in the prayer countdown — at the KMMC venue, or in their town — should contact Ruthi at O79 947 3566 to secure their prayer time slots.
