Prayer and Praise Update - February 2014
National Day of Repentance March for Life and Parliamentary Prayer Vigil
On Friday, 31 January 2014, a funeral procession was organised by the Christian Action Network in memory of the thousands of babies, killed by abortion, who have never had a funeral. This is the 17th year that the Christian Action Network has organised a National Day of Repentance.
Marchers carried miniature coffins, Christian flags and crosses and were led by a hearse. A six metre billboard trailer, with the words, “Abortion Kills Babies”, and “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” (Proverbs 31:8) accompanied the marchers.
Christians from different denominations took part in the procession and gathered afterwards to pray outside the main gates of Parliament in Cape Town. Participants at the Prayer Rally prayed a Scriptural Imprecatory Prayer, calling on the nation and government leaders to repent of the national sin of abortion and warning of God's Judgement if they do not Repent.
The Peoples Post included a full page of colour pictures on this March for Life.
Obituary notices were placed in the Cape Argus and Die Burger newspapers in memory of all babies killed by abortion since 1997.
Sanctity Life Sunday
Throughout the country many church congregations and concerned individuals observed 26 January as Sanctity Life Sunday. They reflected on the tragic reality of abortion and proclaimed the sanctity of human life.
A pro-life demonstration and prayer rally took place on 1 February in East London and Bloemfontein.
The Great Commission is Our Supreme Ambition
On Friday the 3rd ofJanuary, we began our 3-week intensive Great Commission Course with a Great Commission Camp at Back to Basics Campsite in the forest, on the mountains, by a lake, near Grabouw. The 75 participants were challenged to personal repentance and restitution, to destroy idols in their lives and to respond to the call to be faithful labourers in the Large Harvest fields of the nations. Participants of the Great Commission Course came from as far afield as America, New Zealand, Nigeria, Kenya, Zambia, the Congo and from all over South Africa.
Outreaches included distributing thousands of Gospel tracts in outreaches at Dark City on the Cape Flats, Ocean View, and at the Waterfront and Cavendish Malls. Participants also held a Prayer Vigil and outreach to women facing a crisis pregnancy outside Marie Stopes Abortuary and ministered on our Salt and Light programme on Radio Tygerberg.
