Political Power Struggle in Johannesburg and Tshwane
Scripture: Titus 2:1: 7-8 “Above all, set yourself apart as a model of a life nobly lived. With dignity, demonstrate integrity in all that you teach. Bring a clear, wholesome message that cannot be condemned, and then your critics will be embarrassed, with nothing bad to say about us.”
The political struggle in the Johannesburg Metropol will come to a resolution on 28 November 2019 when a new mayor is elected. The internal re-arranging of offices will however still take some time. So by the time that you listen to this voice clip the results will be known. However, God impressed on me how high regard He has for this position in the local government structure and that His heart is for this position to be filled with a person who can truly be an example to the citizens. A person with dignity and who demonstrates integrity in all he or she does. This person will bring to the table a clear, wholesome vision that cannot be condemned. Let’s prophesy this for the local governmental leaders in both Johannesburg and Tswane.
Scripture: Titus 1: 7 “For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach.
1 Cor4 4:2 “Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. Financial mismanagement at state owned enterprises has reached epic proportions. Irregular expenditure in provincial and national state-owned enterprises runs into billions of Rands according to the Auditor General’s report. This will necessarily lead to a need for more financial assistance from government. This culture of bad financial management needs to be addressed. God’s call for us intercessors is to call forth overseers in management that is above reproach and who is trustworthy. Let’s prophetically proclaim healthy financial management transformation.

State Capture: holding the participants and sponsors of the “state capture project” accountable (Psalm 21:8, Hebrews 10:31)
There are many who held positions of authority during the height of state capture, who allowed and even encouraged rampant corruption, but on the surface of things are unlikely to face prosecution because they were not found in the wrong by any legal processes (e.g. SABC, SAA, SARS, NPA). They protest innocence, as they point to this fact. To this day, there are still those who desire to continue this destruction. Continue reading “Week 26 – Governmental Prayer Watch”
Good day prayer warriors. All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus Christ. What a privilege as sons and daughters to be given the right to use that awesome name. So, let us pray fervently to push back and frustrate the works of darkness in Jesus Mighty Name!!
The Economy: Jeremiah 29:11, Proverbs 21:5
The economy is facing many challenges with unemployment at an 11-year high. Pray for the right economic policies and reforms to be implemented in our nation so that our economy can grow and unemployment be reduced. It is the will of God for or nation and its people to prosper so that the various needs can be met. Pray against indecision, procrastination, stagnation and corruption. Pray for growth in small to medium businesses. May God have mercy on South Africa and turn our economy around. Continue reading “Week 24 – Governmental Prayer Watch”
This is a topic that stays close to the heart of God. We see all the in-fighting and the results of bad leadership is certain government institutions and spheres. Power struggles within political parties remains. South Africans get disheartened by all of this as it seems like these struggles for power and entitlement remains the main focus, whilst service delivery and the needs of the citizens falls by the wayside.
This week God is warning political leaders whose self-interest outweigh their elected position of servanthood. Self-serving political leaders will be removed and be replaced with his choice, says the Lord. It is time that true servanthood be restored in government and semi-government organisations. God is calling up leaders with a true father-heart. They will not make empty promises; they will decide things and implement it. God’s heart for our country and government is to succeed. Continue reading “Week 23 – Governmental Prayer Watch”
Good day South Africa, it has been a very difficult week for our nation BUT in it all God always prevails, through the effective fervent prayers of a RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE! This week we want to pray for the following:
Eskom: Amos 7:7-8, Isaiah 43:19,
This state enterprise is critical to the economy of our nation. The enemy is really trying his best to undo all the economic breaktrhoughs we have been experiencing as a nation. We pray againsst inteference, agianst sabotage, praying for the directors and their families. May God move to bring ORDER and STABILITY in this enterprise. Continue reading “Week 22 – Governmental Prayer Watch”
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.
