National Prayer Events
People all over the nation are loosing hope and trust as their personal circumstances become increasingly more challenging. The economy is not growing fast enough to create enough jobs. The moral decay of our younger generation is evident with teenage pregnancies, drug abuse and alcoholism increasing. Alarming statistics show that church attendance is dropping in basically all denominations. Less than 10 million of the 50 million people in the country testify that they have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Occultism, spiritism, scepticism, atheism and ancestral worship are increasing. BUT God ….!The Promise:In Isa.62:6-7 God is calling watchmen to pray night-and-day for peace and restoration. Jesus says in Luke 18:7 that if we pray night and day the Father will make right what is wrong.
A Simple Strategy: Consider the following: Setting up a creative 24/7 prayer room at your church, or a neutral venue in your community. Establish a 24/7 "prayer wall", encouraging believers to fill all the hours of the week. Encourage different groups in your church to take some hours in corporate prayer during the 168 hours. Organise corporate prayer/worship meetings in the mornings and evenings. Do prayer walks in different parts of your community. Preaching on prayer and revival a few Sundays prior to your 7 Days. Make space for the young people to have there own prayer meeting, a half-night, or even an all-night of prayer on the Friday or Saturday. Include different types of prayer, worship and testimonies as part of your corporate meetings.
We are joining the world in 2013 by praying night-and-day for revival among the nations! Imagine all 900+ cities and towns in South Africa praying in 7 Day watches for: SPIRITUAL AWAKENING OF THE CHURCH, SALVATION OF THE UNSAVED, SOCIAL JUSTICE. "7 DAYS on the WALL" is a night-and-day prayer initiative calling all Christians in South Africa to earnestly seek God, for spiritual awakening, social justice and salvation for the nation, for the whole year of 2013! An urgent call to thousands of local churches, prayer watches and organisations across the nation to take 7 days (168 hours) to pray literallynight-and-day for revival in South Africa!
Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ. Accurate, regularly updated ethnic people group information is critical for understanding and completing the Great Commission. Jesus said in Matthew 24:14 "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." Jesus directly links His return to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. While no one knows the date or time of His return, we do know that this gospel of the kingdom must be preached to all the nations first. Revelation 5:9 and 7:9-10 show that there will be some from every tribe, tongue, nation and people before the Throne. Joshua Project seeks to answer the questions that result from the Great Commission's call to make disciples among every nation or people group:Who are the ethnic people groups of the world? Which people groups still need an initial church-planting movement in their midst? What ministry resources are available to help outreach among the least-reached? Joshua Project gathers, integrates and shares people group information to encourage pioneer church-planting movements among every ethnic group and to facilitate effective coordination of mission agency efforts. Joshua Project compiles the work of numerous missions researchers to develop a list of all ethnic peoples that is as complete as possible.

Exposed 14-20 October 2013 - EXPOSED is a global call to action against corruption and poverty. It is a response of the Christian Church inspired from the Bible and is committed to promote practical steps for ethical behaviour in business, government and the Church. It aims to position Christians as advocates of justice and transformation in the nations we are called to serve. Pray:
That God would open our hearts and minds that we may see the corruption that is keeping millions in poverty and that we may act upon it.
That we have the wisdom and strength to respond to the actions of Zimbabwe's Christians are taking and call upon our community to rise up against corruption.
That we will live according to his word by shining a light for the oppressed during Anti-Corruption Day.
Ask God to reveal to you the atrocities that are happening because of corruption and how the church can rise up against it.
Ask God to shine his light on corruption so that many will see the truth!
