Prayer-For-Piet-Retief-Town

On Sunday the 25th of April the pastors of the community met to pray for the tense situation in our town, regarding the death of the Coka-brothers.

 “We have called for a day of prayer and fasting, which was on the second day of court, then followed by prayer at the Airfield towards Mahamba as the highest point over our town. We declared peace and justice.”

Furthermore, the pastors engaged and established a Peace Forum that will include all stakeholders in order to resolve conflicts.

“The pastors stand for Peace, Unity, Justice, and Reconciliation.

Upon these four pillars we stand, for the word of God teaches us in John 17 that we are called to be one. 2 Corinthians 5 calls us to be ambassadors of reconciliation.

We call upon all people to exercise restraint, patience, and to allow the law to take its course. We urge people not to take matters into their own hands. We strongly encourage the entire community to participate in the Peace Forum which will be announced in due course.

How marvelous it will be when the plans of God for His kingdom can permeate every corner of this municipal area. The Bible tells us that “the righteous will be planted in the land” (Isa. 60:21).

Can you imagine the time when Mkhondo has so many righteous believers “planted” throughout its regions that our entire municipal area is known in today’s world as a righteous land?

Can a nation be born in one day?”

Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

Isaiah 66:8 KJV

“May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding keep our town and farms, our hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God and in His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”
