DAY 28 - Pray For Africa

DAY 28 - Pray For Africa

Pastor Bethel Choto

Word of Faith Miracle Christian Ministries

Pretoria, South Africa

My name is Bethel Choto and I am Senior Pastor for Faith4Life, South Africa.

Today is day 28 and we are praying for the continent of Africa. Our prayer will be

based on the following Scriptures: first Timothy chapter 2, verse 1 and 2 and I

will read from the King James. “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications,

prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and

for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all

godliness and honesty.” The next Scripture that I will be reading from is Proverbs

chapter 29, verse 2, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but

when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” Let us pray first for those in

authority - the Presidents and the Prime Ministers of the nations of Africa that

the people of Africa can have good governance in this generation. We pray that

the dictators who will hold on to power by any means and leave us without any

accountability on human rights, justice and rule of law will be replaced by men

and women of integrity. For leaders who have people at heart - not leaders who

have their own selfish interests. We come, again, as tribal leaders wars led by

Islamic extremists and terrorists that is destroying most of the continent. We pray

for the African continent because the citizens desire peace. When the righteous

are in authority, the people rejoice and lead a quiet and peaceable life, in all

godliness and honesty. We pray against the trafficking of children and women

casued by poverty and forced cultural marriages of minors and women. Due to

the continent’s strong cultural identity, common heritage follows ethics. The devil

has used this to blind the church. The church has failed to differentiate between

the Kingdom of God’s principles and African culture. Let us pray for the eyes of

believers to be enlightened that they should be able to identify between culturism

and Christianity. The continent has the worst health indicators than other parts

of the world and we pray for the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom, that will

bring healing of sickness and disease. We pray that corrupt leaders do not steal

resources that are purposed to build medical facilities that will provide best care

for the people. We pray that all the false ministers on the rise in every country on

the continent can be exposed and known for who they really are - that God rises

ministers that will preach the true Gospel for the harvest is ready. Salvation of

the continent is in the hands of the sons of God revealed. We pray today that the

church of Jesus Christ will come out of the cultural system and be separated for

the Kingdom of God, in Jesus’ name let us pray. Amen.
