PRAYER FOR SOUTH AFRICA AND OUR WORLD : 19 FEBRUARY 2018 – 25 FEBRUARY 2018

Light a candle as a symbol of Christ’s presence in your midst.

“I will exalt you, my God and King,

And praise your name forever and ever.

I will praise you every day;

Yes I will praise you forever.

Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!

No one can measure his greatness.” Psalm 145:1-2 (NLT)

Bring your offering of praise to God as you prepare to pray for community, nation and our world.

The past week has been a momentous time in the life of our Nation – we’ve seen peaceful resolution to the change in our Presidency and rain has fallen in the Western Cape. We give thanks and praise to our Lord for answered prayer.

This week please continue to pray for the ongoing political struggles within our Government, especially

  • For President Ramaphosa as he has to navigate through and pick up the pieces of a broken system. May God give him wisdom, discernment and courage in the changes that are necessary
  • Pray for a spirit of togetherness and servant leadership within parliament and government so that the needs of all will be taken into account.
  • Pray for the Godly values and moral to be the cornerstone of our nation.

Continue to pray for:

  • Rain for the Western Cape and regions in the Eastern Cape.
  • Our education system from early childhood development to tertiary. Pray that funding becomes available to those who need it most.
  • A willingness to seek to learn and to work, especially those who have lost all hope in this regard.

Amen.
