Farmers in the Bloemfontein area have offered approximately 800ha of land just 4km from the city centre for staging a national day of prayer for an envisaged one million people from all over South Africa, says the event visionary Angus Buchan.

The organisers, who are facing  a huge demand for logistical information from people from all over South Africa who are eager to be part of the prayer gathering on April 22, are working round the clock to arrange the event and details will be shared as soon as they are confirmed, a spokesman for Shalom Ministries said today. Details will be published on Buchan’s social media websites and on Gateway News.

“Accommodation is being arranged for those travelling from far, details will be confirmed and sent out closer to the time,” the Shalom spokesman said.

She said the name of the farm, as well as directions and GPS coordinates would be confirmed closer to the time and requested Gateway News not to publish details until they were officially released.

Very challenged
In a bulletin on the background to the “It’s Time” event, Buchan says he was very challenged by a viral video clip in which a middle-aged farmer urged him to call the nation to pray for peace in South Africa.

“I was very challenged by his passionate plea and could not shake it off. Early the next morning, while going for a run, I felt the Holy Spirit speak two things into my heart: 1. ‘It’s Time 2. One million people’.

“I posted these two words on our social media sites. Within a few hours, thousands upon thousands of positive responses were made from all over the country. Our nation is in a very troubled time and people are desperate for change. A change only our Lord Jesus Christ can bring,” Buchan says.

He says Bloemfontein was chosen for the venue because it is the centre, or the heart, of the nation.

He says: “And we are asking God to change the heart of our beloved nation, beginning with our own hearts.

“The purpose of this meeting will be to call upon the Lord Jesus Christ. We want to see an end to the senseless murder, rape, corruption and total disregard of human life in which every man is a law unto himself.

“We are calling one million people to attend: from every race group, every denomination and every walk of life – men, women and children. The entrance is free, no tickets will be sold, and no collections will betaken at the event.

“Our scripture for this event is found in James 5:16 (NKJV): ‘Confess your trespasses[a] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.’

“We firmly believe that if our Nation stands together as one, and calls upon the Name of Jesus Christ, He will hear us and heal our nation and bring peace to our hearts and homes.” info for you.

    Lets put our differences aside and stop looking back. God wants to do a new thing in our nation and we all need to do our part. Thank the Lord for a man like Angus Buchan who is prepared to put his faith on the line and believe the Lord for the finances. Come on South Africa. Don’t miss your kiaros moment.

  2. It is so wonderful that the people of South Africa are at last starting to wake up, even more so than ever before.

    God really does have an expectancy for South Africa, above and beyond any other country in the world today.

    It will take love and trust from all involved and if all three men of God (Black, White and Coloured) can get into the Spiritual Boat and row in the same direction, and in unity, then Revival will start. This including women and children of course, but with Mighty Men of God leading the way.

    There will be so many going to this event and many, many more people praying in other areas, supporting this, but there is also a but, and it is a big BUT too.

    After the event is there going to be a ‘follow up plan?’

    This simply cannot be a Word from God to Angus to then be conveyed to the people, to just have a one day gathering.

    This cannot be a ‘hit and run’ evangelical platform, that closes at the end of the day, on that day.

    There needs to be National Contingency Plan for Regional ‘Generals’ so to speak; put in place to help keep encouraging the masses to keep praying.

    This is the very thing that Jacques Malan from Fathers Voice in the Western Cape has been doing with Mighty Men Western Cape?

    Working hard to cover up to over a hundred and eighty villages, towns and cities, whatever there title may be in the Western Cape.

    Please let us know so if there is such a plan to keep this moving forward, then we can also help in keeping the momentum going after this Million gathering in April 2017.

    Head of Public Relations Mighty Men Western Cape.

  6. Merwe van Rooyen

    Let’s unite in prayer to GOD for this meeting

  7. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves…I will heal their land.’
    I believe that should we discover the critical ‘humble ourselves’ aspect of the whole scripture, the healing will take place. Praying is the one aspect we have only focused on and it is not adequate enough for the healing of our nation. What is this critical ‘humble themselves’, (ourselves) module …what does it entail in order to effect healing?

  8. Our country has been dedicated to fore father spirits by our present government with slaughtering rituals that were held all over the country. We, as Christians need to claim it back and dedicate it to our Father in prayer. We need to cast down the witchcraft that was employed by our deceived government, and I strongly believe that this what this day of prayer is going to achieve. Breaking all these negative things in the spiritual realm. As we stand united as Christians before God, we will be removing this curse that was placed upon the land by our government (elders). Israel did the same.
    Eze 8:7-12 And he brought me to the entrance of the court, and when I looked, behold, there was a hole in the wall. Then he said to me, “Son of man, dig in the wall.” So I dug in the wall, and behold, there was an entrance. And he said to me, “Go in, and see the vile abominations that they are committing here.” So I went in and saw. And there, engraved on the wall all around, was every form of creeping things and loathsome beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel. And before them stood seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan standing among them. Each had his censer in his hand, and the smoke of the cloud of incense went up.
    Then he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the dark, each in his room of pictures? For they say, ‘The LORD does not see us, the LORD has forsaken the land.'”

    Eze 8:7-12 Daarop bring Hy my by die ingang van die voorhof. Ek kyk toe—en daar was ‘n gat in die muur.
    En Hy sê vir my: Mensekind, breek tog deur die muur heen. En ek het deur die muur heen gebreek, en kyk, daar was ‘n deur.
    Daarop sê Hy vir my: Gaan in, en kyk na die growwe gruwels wat hulle hier doen.
    Ek gaan toe in en kyk—en daar was allerhande afbeeldinge van afskuwelike kruipende en viervoetige diere, en allerhande drekgode van die huis van Israel wat al rondom op die muur uitgesny was. En sewentig manne uit die oudstes van die huis van Israel het daarvoor gestaan, en Jaäsanja, die seun van Safan, onder hulle; en elkeen het sy wierookpan in sy hand gehad, en die geur van die wolk van reukwerk het opgegaan.
    Toe sê Hy vir my: Het jy gesien, mensekind, wat die oudstes van die huis van Israel in die duisternis doen, elkeen in sy kamers met beeldwerk? Want hulle dink: Die HERE sien ons nie; die HERE het die land verlaat.

  9. We will be arriving with a bus(60 seater), there is some old people with us that will not be able to walk to far. Is there any nearby drop off points for busses!!!
