NMB Christians are invited to join in a global prayer meeting from 1pm to 2pm on Saturday January 29 at the Elizabeth Donkin Square, at the Donkin Reserve in Gqeberha (PE).

It will be a prayer and worship initiative. Intercessors from various countries all over the world will participate in praying over the impact of Covid-19 and laws that are impacting countries and especially believers.

Anyone can join and we would like a wide range of local intercessors from various backgrounds to participate, says Pastor Reuben Africa who can be contacted for more information at +27 73 502 564

  1. I attended this. I went to the Donkin with a friend. We arrived early at 12:30. We could find nothing going on. The Donkin is a big area and there was no indication exactly where this prayer was happening. We wandered around. We both were mugged and items were stolen from both of us. Nevertheless we found one other Christian there to pray and spent time together in prayer and also testified to some. I think the Donkin is a bad spot to arrange a prayer meeting. I expected hordes of people and thought thereā€™d be safety in numbers. We left at 13:15 because it was not clear where exactly this prayer meeting was.

  2. Hi Sharon. I’m really sorry to hear about your ordeal and experiences on Saturday. Please accept my sincere apology. We arrived at the Donkin Reserve at 12.55pm and decided to gather under a tree close to the King Edward hotel, to offer some shade to the people who would pray. We waited there till around 13.10pm to see if more people would arrive and then moved down to the pyramid. On our way down we saw two ladies leave the area. We tried calling them back, but it seemed that they have decided to leave. I assume that one of them could have been you. We were more or less 15 people who continued with the prayers till around 2.30pm.

    Please forgive us for the initial delay and allowing you to be put at risk as a result. Part of our group did one on one evangelism afterwards, to reach out to the lost.
