Growing list of worship events in SA before, during elections

Christians around South Africa are uniting in worship and prayer on the eve of the elections and on election day — and the list of events is growing.

We publish (in quite random order) below a list of worship events posted on the Facebook Page A Praying South Africa where event organisers are invited to post the venue, time, location and town of their gatherings. The list below was up to date at the time of posting this report — but do visit the Facebook page for latest event postings and post to the page if you are hosting an event.

In Port Elizabeth, where Burn 24-7 is hosting a 24-hour prayer and worship event, Sara Thackwray writes: As our country prepares to elect leaders this week, lovers of Jesus from across the city will be gathering to worship the King of kings and entrust our nation to Him. Burn 24-7 is pleased to host this truly citywide expression of the Body of Christ in unity. The Burn 24-7 movement holds to the conviction that revival – and true change – requires the unity of The Church, across denominations, ethnicities, ages and languages.

On a critical day in our nation, when many may be divided by political parties, the Church will stand united and show the world the Father’s love. The upcoming prayer and worship event will start on Tuesday May 7 at 7pm at Word of Faith Christian Centre (Cnr Lily Street & William Moffett Expressway, Mangold Park). It will run for 24 hours, ending on Wednesday May 8 at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to join in as and when able, with the freedom to come and go as needed over the duration of that time. As usual, a friendly request is made to those attending to please respect the attitude of worship while in the venue by keeping conversations to a minimum.

Take special note also of some of the designated prayer times concerning the elections: Tuesday 7 May at 8.30pm and Wednesday 8 May at 6.30pm. This closing prayer time will be one in which the spiritual fathers and mothers of the city will receive prayer from the city’s intercessors. Some of these leaders will also be called upon to pray for the results and the effects of the election, as well as for righteousness in the governing of our nation going forward.

    2 Chronicles 20 / Psalm 67“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us— so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.”
