Week 6 – Governmental Prayer Watch

24 June – 30 June 2019: Click here to download Week 6 prayer points 

  1. The appointment of Zuma Supporters as Portfolio Committee Chairs

The ongoing struggle within the ANC will intensify for the next few months.  The Lord has given me the following Scripture in this regard:

Prov 11:29  He who troubles his own house shall inherit the wind, and the foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart.

  • Prayer point: That Pres Ramaphosa will rule with wisdom
  • Prayer point: That unity will be restored within the government structures and that individuals placed within government or government structures fixated on bringing trouble to the “house” of government will be removed or that they will have a change of heart and become serving the wise leaders placed in government.
  1. The Economy and the status of State-Owned Enterprises

Prov 11: 26  The people curse him who holds back grain [when the public needs it], but a blessing [from God and man] is upon the head of him who sells it.

It is very clear that state-owned enterprises need serious intervention.  The Lord clearly spoke to me in this area and stated that nationalism of these enterprises is no longer the answer.  The answer lies in privatization and globalisation.

If the Minister takes wise decisions with regards to these enterprises, the blessing from God and man will be upon him.

  1. Unions

The Lord showed a picture of a huge insect sitting on a huge egg, the same way a hen will cover her eggs.  So, it covers the egg so that it can protect the egg, but at the same time the insect is sucking the life out of the egg.

The Lord says, that although the purpose of having unions are noble and needed in an economy, it is clear that unions have taken “standing up” for their members a bit too far. No longer is it just about the protection of workers’ rights.  The aim is now only to negotiate the next salary increase, without any compassion for employers who struggle to make a living.  So, whilst the unions are protecting the members, they are at the same time sucking the life right out of the enterprises / businesses that should provide work for its members.

Prov 11:1  A false balance and unrighteous dealings are extremely offensive and shamefully sinful to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight.
