National Day of Repentance
Prayer and Action
On Friday, 31 January, Africa Christian Action will be holding a prayer vigil outside the gates of Parliament (at the corner of Roeland and Plein Streets) from 12:50pm to 1:30pm. A short memorial service and wreath laying ceremony will be held in memory of the babies killed by abortion in South Africa since 1997. This will be preceded by a solemn funeral procession to Parliament. The procession will gather at the Keizersgracht parking lot below Cape Peninsula University of Technology (and near to the wall mural of an African woman) and march down Darling street, left into Buitenkant street, then into Plein Street. Meet in Keizersgracht Street by 12:30pm. Please dress in black if possible.
Save Lives – Stop Abortions
In order to alert Capetonians to the reality of the abortion holocaust taking place in our land, Africa Christian Action has hired a hearse to lead our procession and mourners will carry coffins, crosses and flowers in memory of the victims of abortion. The funeral procession will be accompanied by the Africa Christian Action trailer, a special six metre by three metre display board with pictures of pre-born babies and with the Scriptures: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves" Proverbs 31:8; and "Now choose life so that you and your children may live." Deuteronomy 30:19. Special obituary notices will also be placed in newspapers around the country.
Make a Stand for Life
Please do join us for the funeral procession to Parliament, or meet us outside the gates of Parliament for the prayer vigil. Alternatively, you can organise your own Pro-life Prayer Vigil or demonstration outside an abortion clinic/hospital in your own city.
"Could you men not keep watch with Me for one hour?" Matthew 26:14
Where are the pro-life pastors?
There are over 36 000 churches and 30 000 ministers in South Africa. If just half of them could be inspired to observe a Sunday in repentance and prayer and to study what the Word of God teaches on the Sanctity of Life then we could begin to end the legalised killing of babies in South Africa.
"Rescue those being lead away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter. If you say, but we knew nothing about this, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will He not repay each one according to what he has done?" Proverbs 24:11-12
The Silent Majority
Most of the medical personnel in our country are church members. Most of the mothers go to church. Most of the voters in South Africa claim to be Christians.
If Christians in South Africa could stop and look at the abortion holocaust in the light of Scripture, if we could understand something of the heart of God on this disgraceful abomination - then we would be roused to action. There are 30 million church members and adherents in South Africa. If most of these church goers could understand what the Bible teaches about when life begins, the sanctity of life, and our Christian responsibility to stand up for the right to life of pre-born babies - then we could save thousands of precious lives from abortion.
The goal of Sanctity Life Sunday is to encourage pastors in South Africa to preach on what the Bible teaches on the subject of abortion. It is also hoped that many Christians will observe Friday, 31 January as a National Day of Repentance for the national sin of abortion. A Sanctity Life Sunday Order of Service is available for download here.
"If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
