Over One Million South Africans Gather for Largest Day of Prayer In Country’s History

Despite all the tragic news you may hear and see from the Global Lane—wars, terrorism, political divisions, and devastating natural disasters, God is stirring the world and His people.

On April 22nd, more than one million South Africans of all races gathered for an unprecedented day of prayer for their nation.  It was the largest prayer gathering in the history of the country and perhaps the largest ever on the African sub-continent.

Evangelist Angus Buchan led the time of intercession for the nation.

“We are in a spiritual battle in this nation. The only way we can fight this battle is on our knees,” he said.

The event called, “It’s Time” was held on a farm near the city of Bloemfontein. It was about three times as large as the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival gathering held at Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York.

Event organizers said they chose the “It’s Time” theme because they believe it is time for South African Christians to stand together for their nation and pray for change. They want to see a turning from crime, corruption, and racial divisions that are destroying the nation. They believe Christian hearts must be transformed first and then change may come to the entire nation.

Buchan urged Christians to actively seek God and call upon Him to bring justice and hope to South Africa. He said it’s time to take a stand against sin and evil.

“It’s time to say to the devil, ‘this far devil. No further, no further, no further!’” Buchan insisted.

“I believe what is taking place today will spread from South Africa to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, right up to the Congo, right up to the top!”
