Cry aloud before the Lord, O walls of beautiful Jerusalem! Let your tears flow like a river day and night. Give yourselves no rest; give your eyes no relief. Rise during the night and cry out. Pour out your hearts like water to the Lord. Lift up your hands to him in prayer, pleading for your children, for in every street they are faint with hunger Scripture reading: Lamentations 2:18-19 NLT
  • Who wants to see kidnappings, rape, child abuse in our neighborhood?
  • Who wants to see gangsterism in our townships?
  • Who wants to see bloodshed in our neighborhood?
  • Who wants to see accidents in our roads?
  • Who wants to see satanic activities in our schools?
  • No one wants these activities to happen in their
  • neighbourhood. No one wants any of this to happen to a member of their family.

We should pray for crime to stop. We should pray for accidents to stop on our roads. We should pray against rape and child abuse. We should pray against poverty. We should pray against sicknesses.

Who is going to pray, if it is not the righteous people who are called to prayer? Christians should stand up and intercede for our society. When things are not going right in your society, let tears stream down your torrent, day and night. Give yourself no rest, give your eyes no relief. Let us continue to stand in the gap on behalf of our neighborhoods and our schools.

Reading from the key verses above, this truth guarantees that nothing and no one qualifies to separate me and you from the unconditional love of God. That trial that you are experiencing today is nothing compared to the love of God towards you and your family. Be still and surrender all to Jesus Christ, the Author and the Finisher of our faith.

Arise, intercessors! Cry unto the Lord.

Prayer: "Lord Jesus, you are the Commander of the Armies of Heaven. Protect women and children in our townships. Put a hedge of fire around them. We surrender South Africa back to you in the name of Jesus Christ! Amen."
