Thousands unite in joyous Let Us Worship SA event

Thousands of believers participated in a Let Us Worship South Africa 2023 gathering in Johannesburg on Good Friday led by US worship leader Sean Feucht

By Bianca Barnard.

On the 7th of April, on Good Friday, Johannesburg saw thousands of South Africans gather for a Let Us Worship South Africa 2023 with Sean Feucht and our very own We Will Worship, opening the event with worship and praise.

A variety of leaders, pastors, elders and churches collaborated with the singular purpose of lifting up the name of Jesus over our nation and seeing His people walk in the freedom and power He paid for. With prayers going out declaring God’s word over South Africa, and the release of His presence and peace, the multitudes lifted their voices to the King, celebrating the finished work of the Cross of Christ.

“Woza moya! Woza! Woza!” The phrase echoed over the field of New Covenant Church Bryanston, as Langa, from the We Will Worship Movement, explained the eternal prayer laid up within these words: ‘Come, Holy Spirit. Come.’

As Sean began to sing the spontaneous declaration, ‘Sunday is coming, the story doesn’t end on Friday!’, the truth of these words – pointing to more than the actual events of the Cross and Resurrection saturated the atmosphere. The invitation was made for those who needed dead dreams to awaken, and lost purpose restored, to surrender these burdens to Jesus and watch
what He does with them on the proverbial Sunday. The invitation ended in an exuberant
expression of joy, ebbing and flowing as individuals encountered freedom and hope in waves.

Last year saw Florida SAPS station commander, Colonel Lefa Tsotetsi, receiving prayer and the testimony of his division winning an award within the year gave great encouragement and added zeal to continue to pray for South Africa’s law enforcement. This year, Johannesburg District Commissioner, Major General Max Masha, attended Let Us Worship and standing proxy for all believers within the SAPS, received prayer from John Crumpton, lead elder of Breakthru Life Church, and Sean Feucht.

As the crowd stretched out their hands towards Masha, Sean asked all to make a serious commitment to deliberately change their speech from complaining, cursing, and
discouragement to praying for our nation. Because, as he puts it, ‘When we worship and pray, things change!’

Quoting Psalm 127:1, Masha continued to say, ‘We (South African Police Service) will not wake up in vain anymore. Because of you. Because of your worship. Because of your intercession. Because of our God! We will win! Praise the Lord!’

Many people responded to the alter call

Let Us Worship South Africa 2023 brought higher intensity, greater unity, more diversity, wilder joy, and a deeper expression of the Spirit of God leading to transformation in our nation. As the day drew to a close, and the altar call was made, the air shifted from exuberance to holiness as individuals encountered the saving grace and love of God.

With the reverence of ‘I exalt Thee’ and the deep conviction of ‘Way Maker’, the second Let Us Worship South Africa concluded.

‘I was busy setting up my camera on stage, and I can already feel the presence of God so strong here today.’ – Camera Operator, Gerrie Janse van Vuuren, before the event.

‘I was in front during the altar call to take some pictures of these powerful moments. I was overcome by the weight of His glory as I watched those who responded fall to their knees.’ – Event Photographer and Breakthru Life Church Staff Member, Dylan Dawson.
