On Wednesday October 19 leaders from various national and local prayer networks gathered in Pretoria in the midst of social unrest, a struggling economy, a severe national drought, and other serious challenges that South Africans face, to talk about the way forward for the broader prayer movement in South Africa.
As they spent time in prayer and consultation with one another, it became clear that there is a common burden for spiritual awakening, the rise of righteous leadership, as well as the salvation in Christ of every citizen of our beloved country, says Bennie Mostert Managing Director of Jericho Walls International Prayer Network.
It was decided that there is a growing need for Christians across the Body of Christ, to unite in sustainable persevering prayer for our nation — and hence, all Christians leaders across South Africa have been invited to a National Prayer Leadership Summit in Bloemfontein from November 17 to 19, he says in a letter to leaders.
The summit will gather Christian leaders to seek the answer to the following questions:
- What is God doing in our nation, today?
- How has He answered our prayers for South Africa?
- What is God saying to us as a collective prayer movement?
- What is the strategic direction in prayer for the coming year?
Groups that have already given support to the summit include South African Prayer Movement for Change, Jericho Walls International Prayer Network, SA Back to God Movement, “Bridging the Gap”, Shalom Ministries, Mighty Men SA, International Christian Development Institute, United Prayer for South Africa and Vuka Africa Foundation.
