“The greatest thing anyone can do for God or man is pray”. – S. D. Gordon
Next year will be the 4th consecutive year that we gather as Christians all across South Africa to cover our Nation in Prayer. “Up4SA 2018” had 250+ Prayer Points, so many communities uniting in Prayer over the same weekend!
Up4SA (United Prayer for South Africa) is a nationwide Prayer initiative on grassroots level. (Grassroots CommUNITY Prayer – Across race and denomination). Secondly, our aim is to actively pursue unity in our communities! As ambassadors of our Lord Jesus we have a responsibility in this regard and you and I can play a huge roll in unifying our communities! I would like to encourage and challenge you again to take hands with the “Up4SA 2019” Team, as we Unite in Prayer for South Africa! We all acknowledge that 2019 is a very significant year for us as a Nation, as it is South Africa’s General Election Year!
Next year, we will continue covering in Prayer “crucial areas” concerning South Africa. At an IFSA (Intercessors for South Africa) Prayer and Prophetic meeting held in September 2018, Prayer Network Leaders from across South Africa strongly felt in their spirit that for 2019 we need to place specific prayer focus on the truth that Jesus Christ is our Cornerstone and Foundation, as we pray for our Nation!
Matt 16:18 “And so I tell you, Peter: you are a rock, and on this rock foundation I will build my church, and not even death will ever be able to overcome it”. Matt 7:24 “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock”.
Matt 21:44 “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder”.
With these Scriptures in mind, we will pray the following truths over South Africa at all Up4SA 2019 Prayer points:
We will pray the truth that Jesus is the Prince of Peace in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in people, spiritual or political Leaders. Isa 9:6 “A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And He will be our ruler. He will be called, “Wonderful Counsellor”, “Mighty God”, “Eternal Father”, “Prince of Peace”.
We will pray the truth that The Holy Spirit is our strength in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in our own flesh / strength or abilities. Zec 4:6 “…this message from the LORD: “You will succeed, not by military might or by your own strength, but by my spirit”.
We will pray the truth that Jesus is the only Way, the Truth and the Life in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in false gods. Joh 14:6 Jesus answered him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me”.
We will pray the truth that the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ in whom we trust, is our only source of wealth and provision, we do not put our trust in the wealth and riches of this world. Matt 6:24 “You cannot be a slave of two masters; you will hate one and love the other; you will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money”.
We will pray the truth that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords in whom we trust alone! We do not trust in the kingdoms and institutions of this world. Isa 31:1 “Those who go to Egypt for help are doomed! They are relying on Egypt’s vast military strength—horses, chariots, and soldiers. But they do not rely on the LORD, the holy God of Israel, or ask him for help”.
Amen and amen!
