The Lord reminds us of our authority as believers and encourages us that what we see for the nation and declare is what will surely come to pass (Mark 11:23, Psalms 149:6-9).
These are the prayer points for this week:
1. Economy: declare “turn-around” to the national economy. We prayed a while back, that the Lord would provide wisdom and guidance on how to rejuvenate the economy. We give Him praise for the Minister Tito Mboweni’s plan of action, and the recently deployed Presidential Economic Advisory Council. Indeed, these are His instruments to effect the much needed turn-around:
Ask for supplies/resources – “hands and feet” as well as funds to put action to the plans and strategies they devise (1 Kings 5:6-8, Luke 14:28).
Now pray that there will be no delay in their work (Nehemiah 6:1-4,16; Isaiah 60:22)
2. Criminality and Violence: Please continue to take a firm stand in the spirit, against criminality and violence in all its forms (Isaiah 60:18):
Too many are broken by the spirit of fatherlessness. Repent for the land and pray that God would reverse fatherlessness, raising up true men to raise up other men. This is part of His plan to reverse the scourge of gender-based violence (Psalms 147:3, 68:5, Romans 8:15-16)
3. Leadership/ governance: there is a prevailing wind of change that is crafting our political landscape. It is the wind of the Spirit of God. He alone chooses kings, sets them up and deposes them in His times (Daniel 2:21).
It is the Lord who will settle the disputes in all spheres of leadership in the country (Isaiah 2:4, Acts 1:15-26, Lamentations 3:37).
Continue to pray for His stewards that He is raising to positions of leadership in the country – especially the process of choosing the new deputy Public Protector (1 Samuel 16:10-11, Acts 9:15)
God is in charge of the season of political leaders.
Eccl. 5:2b (The message) “Don’t be too quick to tell God what you think he wants to hear. God’s in charge, not you….”
This is the Word of the Lord with regards to the attacks that we can see on political leaders all over the spectrum. God is in charge. He has a plan and a purpose for these leaders and we need to pray that God plans for them will prevail and that the enemy will not remove them out of their positions before God’s purposes for their positions have been realised.

Next months strike upheaval in economy
“Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.” (Psalm 106 3 NIV)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.Acts 4:12 | KJV |

REGARDING THE CURRENT VIOLENCE AND XENOPHOBIC ATTACKS
Acts 17:26-31 (NKJV) And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,  so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;  for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’  Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.  Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,  because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead. “God made all people from one blood (Eph. 3:6, Col 1:20). Continue reading “3 Days of Corporate Prayer: 22 – 24 September 2019”
We must repent for the way that we as South Africans have treated foreigners Jeremiah 7:6-7
We stand against the anarchy and rebellion against authority Romans 13:1-2. Pray against lawlessness, pray for submission.
Isaiah 3:5 was a judgement the Lord unleashed on Judah and Jerusalem. Pray that the judgement we have unleashed on ourselves by our actions (including idolatry) be reversed, as we repent. Isaiah 3:10-11.
Femicide is a serious problem in our nation. Pray for wisdom to deal with it from the roots, and not just dealing the symptoms. Daniel 2:22. Pray that God changes the hearts of men (both men and women) in our society Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 11:29.
God clearly spoke to us when praying for SA that there is an idol of jealousy, which provokes jealously in SA (Ezk 8:3 & 5). And wherever there is jealously and contention, there will also be confusion and all sorts of evil and vile practices (James3:16). Continue reading “Week 15 – Governmental Prayer Watch”
We continue to pray for the personal safety and mental stability of the Judiciary. Much Demoniac pressure is against them and their families. May God uphold them at this
Pray for their workload to decrease and only cases with merit to be brought to the courts. Without a judiciary that has a “sound mind” enabling sound decision making and judgmments rendered the state is lost, our nations future and our generations are atstake!
Cyrus – Governors/Marketplace Ministers – Ezra 1:1
Who was Cyrus? Cyrus to the Jews was a gentile messiah. Cyrus the Great was the founder of the Achaemenian Empire. His empire, stretching from the Aegean Sea to the Indus River, was the largest that had ever existed at the time of his rule. Cyrus pieced his kingdom together using a mixture of conquest and diplomacy, attesting to his skills as a warrior and a statesman. He decreed that the temple should be rebuilt, favouring the Jews during his reign. Cities were rebuilt under his rule, a new order of governance prevailed under his leadership.
