Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng calls for special week of prayer for the government and judiciary

Today, 24 April 2017 Chief Justice Mogoeng called for a week of prayer this week for the government and judiciary, saying that our rebellion against the commandments of God has made it difficult for God to prevent racism, crime, corruption and immorality from ravaging our country like locusts.

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, issued the following call for South Africans to join him in a special week of prayer 24-30th April 2017 for government and the judiciary, with him personally leading the prayer today Monday 24 April 2016. Justice Mogoeng's call to prayer forms part of 50 days of prayer, building on this Saturday's mass prayer meeting north of Bloemfontein, which drew somewhere between half a million to a million people and numerous parallel prayer meetings at different locations throughout South Africa.

Chief Justice read the Bible from Joel chapter 2 and urged: "The people of South Africa have been ravaged by demons of racism manifesting over the years either as colonialism and apartheid. Crime and corruption have not left them untouched. Greed and immorality and all manifestations of crass injustice has caused them great suffering for centuries now. These are the locusts we [in Joel chapter 2] have been talking about. And they have caused untold indignity and harm to all across the racial and gender divide. We live in a beautiful country well endowed with natural and mineral resources. And these belong to all the people of our country united in our diversity.

But it is our rebellion to the commandments of God that made it difficult for God to prevent all these things from happening to us. We must therefore begin to pray in ernest so that the promises of God - the restoration in the word we have just read - the satisfaction and freedom from shame and indignity can be our portion"

The call for 50 days of prayer for South Africa is supported by a network of organisations 'Intercessors for South Africa', including the Mighty Men movement led Angus Buchan who called the recent Bloemfontein prayer meeting.

The Bible teaches that God sovereignly controls the wisdom of rulers and judges (Job 12:13-25, Daniel 4, so we need to pray for them (1 Timothy 2
