Times of Prayer
Today is a very significant day in the history of South Africa. Eighteen years ago on 27 April we held the first democratic elections. Much positive change has taken place over the years yet lawlessness and certain criminal activities are on the increase. The escalating prices of basic amenities such as electricity, water and fuel has added to the woes of the people.
As seen in many other nations revolts, demonstrations and violence in most cases land on deaf ears or resulting in more devastation. I can make a choice by joining the crowd giving vent to my anger and frustration or I can call upon the name of the Lord where He says that we ought to pray for those in authority so that we may live a peaceable life. As a believer I have a responsibility to stand in the gap for my nation for righteousness prevail.
Ps 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
I pray today that our nation and every other nation in the world will declare that Jesus is Lord over the land and the Lord will choose our nation as an inheritance. There will be a visible expression of His presence through His people.
