FASTING PRAYER POINTS – 7th October 2015

Theme:  Restoration of Family values and corruption in government
Dear Friend

Thank you for participating in our  fasting this month of October.   We will be praying about the following issues which affect society in an unprecedented manner, and those are family and corruption in government.

FAMILIES:

  1. Restoration of communities that are affected by:

Drugs, divorce, gang violence, rape, homosexuality

Restoration of the father as head of his home!

Malachi: 4-6

And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”

God created Heterosexual partnerships and whole families, we are trusting GOD to reverse this trend on a personal, a community and a national level.The family is the basis of society and if the family fails the Nation fails.

 

CORRUPTION &  STRIKES

  1. Praying for the removal of corrupt officials and the hastening of a new president and a new future government.
  1. Praying for the STRIKES announced by NUM and the impending mining strike by AMCU. We trust God for BREAKTHROUGH and  a speedy agreement with these unions.

 

Our foundation scripture remains the same:

 

ISAIAH 58:6-8

“Is not this the fast that I choose:

 to loose the bonds of wickedness,

to undo the straps of the yoke,

to let the oppressed go free,

and to break every yoke?

 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry

and bring the homeless poor into your house;

when you see the naked, to cover him,

 and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

 Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,

 and your healing shall spring up speedily;

 your righteousness shall go before you;

 the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard
