Parliament Prayer Day

Friday, 24 November 2017 will be marked in the history books as a day that very few will forget as it was the first Parliament Prayer Day, with guest speaker Mr Angus Buchan and about 250 church and prayer leaders from across South Africa.

Anneke Rabe, Nkosinathi Dimemani, Premie and Laisha Naidoo and Sheldon and Christen Hallis went to the Parliament building in Cape Town where they all prayed together for unity and hope in South Africa.

Organisers of the prayer event said: “We are all extremely concerned about the erosion of values and key challenges facing our beloved nation.” They will be focussing on righteous leadership, the moral and spiritual condition of the nation and restoring hope and a vision – a new heart beat for South Africa.

Angus Buchan brought a message to Parliament about hope for the nation during his 20-minute time slot. The Parliament Prayer Day was initiated from a journey over the past three or four months by a small team, which included Rev. Moss Ntlha (Evangelical Alliance of SA), Peter Tarentaal (SA Christian Leadership Initiative), Anneke Rabe (Reconciliation leader) and Elza Meyer (Turn2God).

During this time, the team prayed together with intercessors at various sites around South Africa, including Table Mountain and the Union Buildings. The community of Mkhondo is proud to be associated with such a Godly experience and is looking forward to the changes that are yet to come.
