Praying for the Nelson Mandela Metro

Praying for the Nelson Mandela Metro

16th - 22nd January 2022

Encouragement: ...forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3: 13-14
  1. Let us continue to pray for the Nelson Mandela Bay Local Council to work together in harmony for the good of the Metro; for God's blessing on our Executive Mayor, the Mayoral Committee, and all the Ward Councillors (Pr. 10: 22); the Lord to grant our Executive Mayor and the councillors: wisdom, knowledge, understanding and discernment to be able to direct the healthy growth of the NMB Metro and maintain peace in the area. Pray for the Father to reveal strategies and innovative ideas to our Executive the Mayor and the NMB Councillors to stabilize and strengthen NMB, and to attract investment and motivate economic advancement in NMB.  (1 Tim. 2: 1-5; Isaiah 60: 10-11; 61: 7)
    Pray for:
    God to grant the NMB Church Leaders great wisdom, discernment, knowledge and understanding during these unsettled times; pray for thousands of NMB people to have a deep encounter with God and to come to true Salvation during 2022; for backsliders to return to the Lord; pray for a greater unity-of-relationship and unity-of-purpose both interdenominationally and in every congregation - to enable the Church to minister to the lost, the hurting, the needy and unemployed in 2022. (Ephesians 4: 3; 13)
    The Lord to continue to thrust out labourers into the Harvest field. (Luke 10:2)
    Pray for: all the Educators, Students and Learners returning to their places of learning: that they return with new vigour and enthusiasm; for parents to be able to supply school clothing etc.; for a high standard of education to be reached in all grades in the E Cape Schools; for an uninterrupted school year.
    Pray for: the NMB economic situation to improve; for the Lord to give strategies and creative ideas to business owners; for entrepreneurs to arise and create work for others; for workplace ministries to develop successfully in all sectors.
  5. RAIN
    Thank the Lord for the lovely rains that we have experienced recently, and pray for more rain in our catchment areas; for our dams to be filled; and our NMB residents to be aware of the great need and to conscientiously save water.

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