  • The people of South Africa to notice the good that is being done for others and for our Country
  • Our diverse population to work together in a healthy and productive way
  • Our children to grow up without the injustices from the past being perpetuated
  • Equal opportunities for all
  • Continued prayer for Cyril Ramaphosa – To seek God’s guidance daily as he steers our country and makes decisions; and roots out corruption.
  • Continue to pray for rain in the Cape – for the drought to be completely broken
  • Pray for our Circuit Pentecost Service on 20th – may many lives be touched through our witness.
  • Pray for our Methodist Churches during Mission Month – may lives be changed and new life be sparked in those who serve and who are served by our churches.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”
