The Ignite The Fire Gospel campaign – the largest prayer and worship gathering in KZN — was a resounding success as almost 30 000 believers converged to seek God for revival of the Church and repentance for the nation.

With the aim of seeking city transformation by igniting peoples’ hearts to do God’s will, strategic prayer points focused on pertinent issues from family, marriage and gender-based violence to human trafficking, drugs and alcohol addiction, education, health, youth and children.

The crowds further engaged in powerful intercession topics including the upholding of morals, integrity, good governance as well as reconciliation and unity.

A special manifesto of the Kingdom of God was read out which outlined among others that the Church would seek God’s righteousness in this nation, love the Lord and their neighbours by positively impacting communities.

“We will pray for our government and all in authority that we may lead quiet and peaceful lives and that righteousness may exalt our nation. We will repair the walls, restore the streets and renew the ruined cities. We call upon all citizens to take a stand against everything that is evil, illegal and destructive.

“Whatever our station in life, we will uphold financial integrity and conduct our business affairs with honesty for the benefit of all. We will be peacemakers and pursue the ministry of reconciliation,” proclaimed the manifesto read out by Ps Winston Owen.

“The gathering, which was a first of its kind, united people of all races, cultures and denominations with one purpose – to seek God for the betterment of our nation and to empower believers to positively transform their communities and cities. We declared a clear sound of revival over the province of KZN and South Africa. Revival means ‘God came’ — only God can heal our land and forgive us when we come together in humility, prayer and repentance,” said Naidoo.
