Encouragement: '"... as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."  [Joshua 24: 15]

Pray for:
  1. South Africa and the Elections:
    The Lord to awaken the Church to the importance of this election so that the Church will repent of lethargy and disinterest and pray for these SA elections, casting their vote for godly leaders.
    God to intervene in these elections and for His Will to be done.  [Matthew 6: 10, Romans 13:1]
    The largest SA voter turnout in history and the elections to be free and fair.  [Joshua 24: 15a...d]
    Voters to seek for righteousness; righteous people who will make righteous laws.  [Matt. 5. 6]
    Rulers of understanding, knowledge and who know how to rule in the correct way to bring stability, peace, tranquillity and prosperity to our nation.  [Proverbs 28:2]
    Every Christian believer to cast their vote for a righteous government.  [Proverbs 29: 2]
    Votes for the righteous leaders to whom the voters will be willing to submit.  [Romans 13: 1]
    The protection of every voter from being deceived by misinformation and influenced by incorrect input, ideas, concepts and false promises.  [1 Timothy 2: 1 - 5]
    Wisdom and knowledge for each voter as they choose for whom they will vote!  [Prov. 1: 7]
    The voters to vote for those leaders who will put their decisions in God's hands.  [Prov. 21: 1]
    No corruption at the polls, and all questionable activities to be investigated immediately!
    The media to be impartial and to promote a peaceful election.  [Exodus 23: 1a, James 3: 5]
    God to raise up men and women that will give our nation godly advice.  [Proverbs 11:14]
    Godly leadership to be established.  [Proverbs 14:34]
    A mighty move of God to sweep through our nation.  [Isaiah 60: 1-2]
  2. Nelson Mandela Bay:

    1. The NMB Church
      All Christians/congregations in the Bay to be restored, renewed and revived.  [Hosea 6:1 - 3]
      Unity-of-Purpose, unity-of-relationship and of the Spirit in the Body of Christ.  [Eph. 4: 3, 13]
      The Lord to help us to protect the unity of the Body of Christ, and for no influence to come into the Church to divide its loyalty, that the focus of the Church will be the Lord Jesus Christ! 
      [Psalm 68: 1-5, Romans 16: 17]
      All those ministering in Christian congregations to seek God's wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Many more people to come to true salvation in this season, labourers to be willing to go out into the harvest fields to reap the harvest, and large numbers to respond to the Gospel. Believers to catch the vision of workplace ministry!  [Luke 10: 2, Rom. 10: 9-17]
    2. Schools in NMB
      The Lord's protection over all our schools: the principals, educators and learners, the buildings and the curriculum; the Lord to give parents great wisdom, understanding and knowledge in these challenging times. Many Christian parents to be willing to get involved in the School Governing Body of their children's schools. Godly teachings and sound moral principles to be taught in every school in the Bay.  [Proverbs 22: 6]
    3. Health
      Believers to resist the negative and heart-breaking effect of the recent attack of 'flu and to stand against the medically-prophesied pandemic.  [James 4: 7, 1 Peter 5: 9, John 10: 10]
    4. Crime and Violence
      The tremendously high crime rate in the Bay to be curbed suddenly and swiftly by our police. A remarkable decrease in abortions, murders, crime, violent behaviour, gang warfare, human trafficking, corruption, and evil ideologies.

Remember the promise:
 ... pray to the Lord for the city because if it prospers, you will prosper.  Jeremiah 29:7
