Father, Jesus is our Salvation. He is the God-revealing light of the non-Jewish nations and the light of glory to the non-Jewish nations and the light of glory for Your people South Africa. As members of the Body of Christ, we are asking You to give us the nations for an inheritance and the ends of the earth for our possession. All kings shall serve You. In the name of Jesus, we bring before You the nation of South Africa, the continent of Africa and her leaders. We ask You to rebuke leaders for our sakes, so that we may live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Father, in Jesus’ name, we give thanks for our country and its government. We hold up in prayer before You the men and women who are in positions of authority. We pray and intercede for the President, the representatives, the provincial MEC’s, the judges of our land, the police, the police commissioner, as well as the mayors, and for all those who are in authority over us in any way.  We pray that the Spirit of the Lord rests upon them.

We believe that skillful and godly wisdom has entered into the heart of our President and that knowledge is pleasant to him. Discretion watches over him; understanding keeps him and delivers him from the way of evil and from evil men. We pray that the upright shall dwell in our government….. That men and women blameless and complete in Your sight, Father, shall remain in these positions of authority; but that the wicked shall be removed from these positions of authority; and the treacherous shall be rooted out of it.

Your Word declares that ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…’. We receive Your blessing.  Father, You are our refuge and stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution and desperation). So we declare with our mouths, that Your people dwell safely in this land and that we will prosper abundantly! We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus!

We give thanks unto You that the good news of the gospel is published in our land. The Word of the Lord prevails and grows mightily in the hearts and lives of the people. We give thanks for this land and the leaders You have given to us, in Jesus’ name.

Jesus is Lord over South Africa, its Government & its people’s
