Week 28 – Governmental Prayer Watch

  1. 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.

  1. ZONDO COMMISSION

Scripture: Prov 20:  26 “A wise king is able to discern corruption and remove wickedness from his kingdom.”

                Prov 25:5  “And if you purge corruption from the kingdom, a king’s reign will be established in righteousness.

                 Prov 28:16  “Abusive leaders fail to employ wisdom,  but leaders who despise corruption will enjoy a long and full life.”

The former State Security Minister was arrested following reports made at the Zondo Commission.  South Africans are tired of corruption and the never-ending cycle thereof. Firstly, let’s give a prayer of thanksgiving as the NPA is taking action as a result of matters exposed at the Zondo Commission.  More arrests are needed.  Let’s us as intercessors call in for wise leadership to identify and get rid of corruption.  May the reign of South Africa be established in righteousness.

  1. DROUGHT

Scripture:  Ps 65:10  “Every field is watered with the abundance of rain-showers soaking the earth and softening its clods, causing seeds to sprout throughout the land.”

                  James 5:18  “Then he prayed again and the skies opened up over the land so that the rain came again and produced the harvest.”

                Matt 25:14 onwards; v21:  Well done, you upright and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little;  I will put you in charge of much.  Enter into and share the joy which your master enjoys.

Let us remain thankful for the rain that has fallen in places in South Africa.  However, let us also persevere in prayer for the areas who are experiencing droughts, like the Eastern Cape, Karoo, Limpopo, North West and Northern Cape.   The severe drought led to many job losses, estimated at as much as 62 000.  Our water infrastructure needs work.  In a whole we as South Africans need to be water conscious and everyone must use water responsibly.
