Dear Colleague,


Prayer is foundational to our faith as Pentecostal believers. History clearly shows that all Spiritual deepening, revitalization or revivals were birthed in the context of prayer. As the leaders of the AFM in South Africa, we are calling on all our Pastors, Assembly Leaders and Members to make a determined effort to revitalize and energize our traditional focus on prayer during the month of January.

I ask you to lead your Assembly in prayer and fasting during the week of 16 to 20 January 2023. Five short video clips are now available from the AFM of SA’s YouTube Channel:


The video clips can be used as a point of departure during prayer meetings, or in WhatsApp communication over the five days – as a tool to guide and empower. The following topics are covered:

PRAY: What and Why.
PRAY: Intentionally.
PRAY: Frequently.
PRAY: Fervently.
PRAY: And Fast.

We acknowledge the fact that our Assemblies function within diverse contexts and therefore we do not want to be prescriptive on how you should structure this week of prayer and fasting. As the National Office Bearers, we however urge you to give attention to this crucial matter and to find a way that will work effectively in your context. We believe that the promise made in 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) is still true today: “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Warm Regards!
Henri Weideman
