Nelson Mandela Bay Christians (NMB) are urged to join in three days of prayer and fasting for the metro from Friday January 26 to Sunday January 28, said Bishop Zola Moses chairperson of the NMB Municipality Religious Desk.
Prayer gatherings will be held at the new taxi rank opposite Njoli Square in KwaZakhele from 4pm to 7pm on each of the three days, he told Gateway News in an interview.
He said the increasing brazenness of crime, and maladministration of the municipal office — with concomitant safety and service delivery issues — are not chance occurrences but consequences of a land defiled by wickedness (Leviticus 18:25). As such, the event seeks to apply a biblical solution to a biblically-defined problem, he said, quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14 — “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
The daily prayer objectives are:
Friday January 26 — Healing of the Bay through the Church’s repentance for:
- neglect of its responsibilities and of being the prophetic voice it is called to be,
- not declaring God’s righteousness prophetically for fear of persecution and/or the unknown,
- being comfortable within church buildings and not evangelising.
Friday January 27
A change in people’s hearts through revival so that peace, love, and harmony may rule day and night in the Metro.
Saturday January 28 — Declaration of what we want to see happening over the Metro with regard to:
- municipal administration,
- our communities, and
- our families.
Bishop Moses said although God placed the prayer initiative God in his heart, “… no one owns it … it belongs to God.” He said the campaign is the first of more similar events aimed at seeing God’s Kingdom come as the Church raises “the Jesus flag” in the metro.
