What a difference a day makes! Twenty four hours, and on 15 February 2018 we saw the dawn of a new beginning in South Africa and we need to give God all the glory for this miraculous happening!

Abba Father, awesome Creator of heaven and earth, we stand in awe of You and Your greatness. We give You all the glory and the honour for Your miraculous hand that is at work in our beautiful country. For all South Africans in our country we pray the following scriptures:

  1. '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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

  1. 'I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.' 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)

  1. 'Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.' 1 Peter 2:17 (NIV)

In 1 Corinthians 13:13 Paul writes, 'And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.' (NIV)

We thank you Father for rewarding our Faith that You would bring change to our land by providing us with hope. Lord, we now ask that each and every one of us will radiate your Agape love to all, regardless of race, colour, or religion and that South Africa will become a shining light for what brotherly love is, right across our country, the continent, and into the world. We ask this in the almighty name of Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, Amen.
