16 April – 4 June 2017
(Resurrection Sunday to Pentecost Sunday) 

NATIONAL PRAYER INITIATIVE issued by INTERCESSORS FOR SOUTH AFRICA (A forum of prayer networks and prayer groups in South Africa)

The aim of this national initiative #50DaystoBlesstheNation is for Christians to take responsibility for our Nation by believing that God can and will change the hearts of people in our nation through our prayers. Our first task is to ask Him to change our own hearts from a negative perspective of our Nation to one of faith and trust that He wants to use us to bring about a change.

We are witnessing the powerful effect of the media when the words of leaders are exploited to incite hatred, racism and violence, and eventually the cursing of others; or when one person, with one irresponsible post on the social media, release a similar reaction in our Nation. The words of Christians are to be different – to bless rather than to curse, to heal rather than to wound, to restore rather than to destroy.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue – Prov.18:21”Z
” But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you… – Mat 5:44”
