Praying for the Nelson Mandela Metro

Praying for the Nelson Mandela Metro

7th to 13th August 2022

Encouragement:  "I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry." (Psalm 40: 1)
  1. Women: August is Women's month - let us pray for our women!
    The safety of unborn and infant girls.  (Psalm 139: 13-14a)
    Child marriages. Pray for those children and women suffering the physical and emotional pain of such relationships.  (Isaiah 1: 17)
    Young women to seek God and a godly lifestyle in their youth.  (Psalm 45: 10-11)
    Wives to exhibit godly conduct.  (1 Peter 3: 1-2)
    Women to share the Gospel wherever they are!  (Psalm 67: 11)
    The Lord gave the word; great was the company of women that proclaimed it.
  2. Peace in South Africa and in Nelson Mandela Bay.  (1 Timothy 2: 1-5)

  3. Nelson Mandela Bay and South Africa re:
    1. Outages - the Eskom situation
    2. Petrol price hike
    3. Corruption
    4. State capture
    5. Crime and violence
    6. Human trafficking

    Pray for the Lord to intervene in each of these situations:
    for all corruption to be exposed and rooted out; for the crime and violence in the Bay and in SA to be curbed; the criminals to be identified, arrested and firmly dealt with by our justice sector; for many of the NMB and SA criminals to come to real repentance and true salvation in the near future.  (Proverbs 14: 34)
  4. The Economy: An upswing in the NMB economy; fresh investments in the Bay; Entrepreneurs to be raised up to provide work for the unemployed; our NMB tourism to suddenly flourish with foreign and local tourists visiting the Bay; the recovery of our citrus-growing areas and a good export market; and employment for the unemployed.  (Jeremiah 29: 7)
  5. The Jesus 2022 City-wide Crusade that is planned for NMB in September to be a resounding spiritual success; for the Church Leaders to catch the vision and to prepare their people and venues for this City-wide event.
    1. Protection over the organisers; God's favour on the organizers as they execute their duties; good health for the organisers, ministers and the evangelists.
    2. Congregations to begin reaching out to the lost in their area by inviting the lost and the unchurched to the meetings; God to prepare the hearts of the 'invited' to respond positively to the invitation.
    3. People to come to the Lord, just by reading the handed-out tracts and by watching the Jesus film: for Church members to be willing to host showings of the Jesus Film; the Lord to spiritually revive you, your families, and the congregations with whom you fellowship during this time; your unsaved family and friends to come to true Salvation; and backsliders to return to the Lord
    4. A mighty visitation of the manifestation of the Living God in NMB..
      (Mark 11: 24; Matthew 28:18-20)

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