A campaign of 21 days of prayer and fasting for South Africa called by SABackToGod began today (January 14, 2015) and will continue until February 4.
In an introductory email SABackToGod says the call for the church “to fast for our nation, ushering in a new dispensation of rule and governance for SA” was issued by the ministry’s founder, Janet Brann Hollis, who is also the leader of Ruach Ministry, an established prophetic ministry. The call follows a prophetic word (See: https://gatewaynews.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/2015-a-Year-of-re-2.docx and http://www.ruachministries.co.za/prophetic-word-for-2015/) that Brann Hollis and her team received calling on South Africa to return to its Godly redemptive prophetic purpose to be a gateway for Africa and the world. SABackToGod was formed last year after Brann Hollis called a 21 day fast for the threatening situation at the strike-hit platinum mines at Marikana near Rustenburg.
The objectives of the current fast are for SA to turn back to God; for God’s will and purpose for the nation to be released; and for all to live in peace, prosperity and goodwill. According to the website, the plan is to reach the objectives by “engaging in strategic prayer and fasting in the Spirit realm” and “by removing all leadership that will not bow its knee to Jesus!”.
Basic scriptures for praying during the fast are Isaiah 58:6-8, Proverbs 11:10-11, 2 Chronicles 7:14, 1 Peter 5:5, 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and Psalm 82:3.Daily scriptures will be posted on the SABackToGod and Ruach Ministries Facebook pages.
