Father God, I come to you on behalf of the children of God in South Africa.
Your Word says, “For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with him in eternity],” Philippians 1:21 AMP.
With knowledge LORD, but to live is Christ and to die is gain our lives are not our own; but they are bought with the Blood of Jesus.
LORD, there were many who came before us that in the midst of darkness, whom You delivered by their prayers for mercy.
In that vein, we come to you now to ask for Mercy in time of need for the nation of South Africa.
LORD of Mercy, El Rachum, our compassionate God, we cry out for mercy on the land of South Africa.
LORD, you know everything. You know where every dead body lies. You know where the blood was spilt. You know the devastation, but in Isaiah 61, You talked about us being restorers of the breach!
We pray like Daniel,
“And now, o LORD our God, who brought your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name, as it is today — we have sinned, we have been wicked.
O LORD, in accordance with all your righteous and just acts, please let your anger and your wrath turn away from your nation of South Africa. Because of our sins and the wickedness of our fathers, your people have become an object of scorn and a contemptuous byword to all who are around us.
Now therefore, our God, listen to (heed) the prayer of your servants and our supplications, and for your own sake let your face shine on your people here.
O my God, incline your ear and hear; open your eyes and look at our desolations and all the evil that has arisen; for we are not presenting our supplications before you because of our own merits and righteousness, but because of your great mercy and compassion.
O LORD, hear! O LORD, forgive! O LORD, listen and take action!
Do not delay, for your own sake, o my God, because of this nation and your people who are called by your name.” (Daniel 9:15-19 AMP)
We are in desperate need! Our children are being destroyed and bitterness has caused great wrath against us.
We need you to arise LORD and protect Your People.
Burn up occult roots in the land. Let every spirit of witchcraft, divination and sorcery be burned by your fire in the lives of those who practice it!
Remove the veil of callousness from hardened hearts and awaken victims of Satan’s manipulations to the glory of Your Son Jesus!
Forgive us for any complacency in our hearts. Forgive us for any angry attitudes or hatred in our hearts and in the hearts of our enemies.
Consider their threats LORD, and grant to your servants even greater boldness to preach the gospel following it was signs and wonders to the enemies of the cross.
Pour out on us The Spirit of Might, and increase your angelic presence.
May the enemies of God and Your Children see the angels who surround us! Open their eyes to see LORD, that the armies who are with us, are greater than they.
Break the power of all the spirits of murder, mayhem, hatred, anger, vengeance, and violence.
Restore true justice Abba, and destroy insanity in our land. Bring down every spirit of unbelief and all deaf and dumb spirits due to all the idolatry.
Hear our prayers oh God and destroy the generational roots of idolatry and intimidation, murder and witchcraft, sorcery and divination!
Put a cog in the wheel of all plans to annihilate us and destroy this nation! Because we know that’s the enemy plan, and not Yours!
Arise oh LORD!
Let your enemies be scattered! Remove the veils of darkness over this land and all the schemes of bullies and thugs. Protect the children and youth from all the enemy’s plans.
Destroy Leviathan’s roots in the land — destroy his hold and crush him under our feet as we worship you!
Let Israel rejoice in their maker! Let Zion’s children rejoice in their king.
Let them praise His Name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him with the tambourine and lyre.
Let the Godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their throats, and a two-edged sword in their hands, to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, to execute on them the judgment written.
This is the honor for all his Godly ones. Praise The LORD! Hallelujah! (Psalm 149:2-3,5-9 AMP).
