Remember the promise:
... pray to the Lord for (the city) because if it prospers, you will prosper.
- All Services in every congregation in the Bay to be mightily blessed during the summer holiday period; for each one to experience the manifest Presence of God in their midst; for true revival to break out in each of these congregations; for many people to come to salvation through these ministries; for backsliders to return to the Lord; and for ministries and missionaries to be 'raised up' from every congregation.
- Our Youth throughout the Bay: For hundreds of our young people to come to repentance and true salvation during these holidays; for backsliders to return to the faith; for them to connect with other Bible-believing children of God and to link up with a congregation that will encourage them to grow in the faith. We pray for continued unity-of-purpose among our Youth Pastors and that this unity will be strengthened remarkably in 2019. Pray that our youth organizations and church youth groups will work together for the salvation & spiritual growth of the NMB children and young people; and for our youth to be 'set on fire for Jesus. Pray for the Outcomes of the Scripture Union Camp and the other summer Youth Camps to be far-reaching. Pray for Burn 24/7 to expand and to gather great momentum in 2019.
- Our local Government: For God to bless our NMB local government; for all corruption to be rooted out; and for excellent service delivery in 2019.
- Pray for a free and fair non-violent National Election in 2019; for excellent; righteous & just leadership to arise in SA that will competently lead us into the future.
- The NMB SAPS: for our police to continue to be motivated in their fight against crime; protected from all danger and harm; for crime to rapidly decrease in NMB; for all types of criminals to be swiftly caught, convicted and appropriately sentenced.
- Correctional Services: for peace and calm to reign over our Correctional Service Facilities during these summer months; for the spirit of rebellion to be bound; for God's protection - body, soul and spirit - over all the Warders and Offenders; for many Warders and Offenders to have an encounter with the Lord and to come to true salvation; for backsliders to return to the Lord - during this Christmas season
- Holiday-makers, Tourists & Travellers: the safety of all holiday-makers & tourists visiting NMB during this summer season - on the roads, in the shopping malls; and on our beaches; for many tourists to visit the Bay during this period; protection over all those travelling to and from NMB these holidays; all holiday-makers and tourists to feel drawn to attend the various Christmas Services in the Bay; and for many to experience the love of God and come to salvation, while visiting the Bay.
- NMB Christian Media: for the NMB Christian community to recognize the tremendous value of this sector and to support these organizations financially and in prayer; for the staff - who work tirelessly - to endure; to gain vision for the work & to be motivated by the results of their ministry to the Bay.
