Encouragement: "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: 'Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call his name Immanuel..."
  • As we approach Christmas, New Year and the New Year - 2020, let us continue to pray for the Body of Christ in NMB.   John 16: 33
  • In the midst of the turmoil in the world, let the peace in the hearts of the Christians be unshaken and let this be a real testimony to those who have never had an encounter with the Lord.   Philippians 4; 5-7
  • Even the Church herself is being shaken: There is a tremendous attack on the Body of Christ at the moment: On the health of individuals, strange accidents occurring, and our whole belief system is being challenged. Pray for God's Hand of protection over every believer.   Psalm 91; 1 John 4:4; Hebrews 13: 5-6
  • Cause the Christians to become courageous in their stand for truth, godly principles and behaviour - even as all our godly standards are being challenged at this time.   2 Timothy 1:7; Isaiah 41: 10; 43: 1-3; Joshua 1: 9
  • Pray for all our NMB Christian Media groups at this time, especially: Kingfisher FM, PEFM, PE Churchnet & Gateway News: for protection, prayer and financial backing!    Romans 10: 13-15
  • As you pray for the Body of Christ, also remember to praise God for the wonderful unity-of-purpose and relationship that is developing in the Church. We see many believers coming together in unity - at all different levels - but also ask God to bring both the wider Body of Christ and also every local congregation into a far deeper and wider unity.   John 13; 34, 35; 17: 21; Psalm 133
  • Pray for 2020 to be a year where the Church steps out more strongly:
    • In Evangelism -'Every Home Crusade for Christ' is targeting Port Elizabeth in 2020!   Mark 16: 15; Matthew 28:18 - 20
    • In Prayer: Pray for the Spirit of God to stir up the NMB Church to realise that prayer is of utmost importance: '...for without Me you can do nothing" - as 'Solo Time' is promoted in NMB. John. 15: 5
    • In the Word - As the Bible Society of South Africa celebrates its 200th Anniversary and promotes concentration on the reading of God's Word.   2 Timothy 2: 15

Pray for NMB and South Africa:
  • The drought in the whole of Southern Africa to be miraculous broken.   Deut. 28: 12
  • The CSE Program to be withdrawn from the SA Education Curriculum.   Matthew 18:6
  • All the members in the SAPS and our Correctional Services.   Psalm 91
  • The NMB Community, that by a great intervention God will bring order and root out all corruption from every sector of our society.   Proverbs 14: 34
  • For God's protection upon our youth during the December/January holidays.
  • Pray for all the Christian Summer Camps and Outreaches to bring many into a deeper relationship with God. Psalm 119: 9, 10
  • Many visitors and tourists to come to NMB during our summer season, pray for their protection from all danger and harm, the protection of all those travelling to and from NMB, and for all those using our beaches.

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

    Much water has flowed under the bridge since the first fully democratic elections in 1994, yet we seem to have made little progress in connecting the people of Nelson Mandela Bay. We are still living in the isolated communities created during the apartheid era. After months of prayer the Lord planted the idea of a Nehemiah Prayer Route in the minds of the leadership of Transformation Christian Network (TCN).   View Report
