Prominent prayer leaders, church leaders, activists and marketplace Christian leaders appear in a video calling on South Africa Christians to get behind a grassroots movement of prayer walking during lockdown exercise time.
The street prayer movement began in Mitchell’s Plain, Cape Town early this month and spread rapidly to other areas of the Western and Northern Cape and beyond, to areas such as Heidedal in Bloemfontein.
“I am encouraging you, as you put on your exercise clothes go out into communities, pray during that time, and let’s see this period as a time of reformation,” says One SA Movement leader Mmusi Maimane in the video which was created by SA Back to God.
When you go out there and you pray, and you walk, and you pray the Word of God over your neighbourhood, you are a Presence-bearer — you are the fragrance of God,” says Dr Suzette Hattingh of Voice in the City International
So the call is clear — whether you walk, run or cycle in your exercise time — release the presence of God in your neighbourhood and know that God uses prayer to extend His Kingdom on Earth.
