South Africa on its knees: over a million people are descending on Bloemfontein for massive prayer gathering

Over 1.7 million South Africans have started descending on Bloemfontein for the massive prayer gathering taking place this weekend.

 

In the biggest recorded prayer gathering in Africa, with over 1,7 million tickets given away already, South Africans are taking to their knees this weekend to pray for our country. Apparently the tickets were only to allocate parking, which means that there may very well be over 3 million people attending.

Concerned citizens of all races, colours, cultures and religious denominations have already started descending on the free event near Bloemfontein.

“After 22 April, South Africa will be a changed country,” says Angus Buchan.

He is referring to the “It’s time” gathering that will take place on a farm 4 km outside Bloemfontein and is expected to draw a crowd of over a million South Africans.

All indications are that this will be the largest day of prayer in the history of South Africa.

“The day of prayer is intended for all South Africans of all genders, races and denominations who are concerned about the malice, hatred, violence, murder and corruption in the country,” says Buchan.

He says it is time to stop pointing fingers, disparaging and insulting, and to acknowledge that we are all to blame in some or other way and should embrace one another in Christ.

“It’s time to suit the action to the word. We declare war on the disregard for human life and unkindness. On 22 April, we will be drawing a line in the sand.”

The seed for the gathering was planted when a WhatsApp video did the rounds with a desperate outcry for Buchan or any other spiritual leader in South Africa to intervene and arrange such an event. When Buchan replied by posting a video on social media, he received 1,8 million responses within hours.

 Meanwhile, preparations on the farm outside Bloemfontein to accommodate a million people are under way.

It will be a day event from 10:00 to 16:00 on Saturday 22 April. Mr. Buchan is expected to address the gathering from 12:00 onwards. Only toilet facilities will be provided. All those attending must be self-sufficient with their own food and water.

Tent and caravan stands will however be provided on neighbouring farms for people who wish to arrive the previous day. Thousands are expected to be accommodated in the guesthouses and on the guest farms in the Bloemfontein area.

Buchan appeals: “22 April will be a day much talked about by generations to come. Be part of the future and come and join us in prayer.”

    I know you all want a new south africa. We are all hurting. But in these conditions charlatans thrive. Angus buchan is a conman. He is a self made millionaire from his preaching. Christianity was born in poverty and it has appealed to poverty stricken people ever since. Paul tells us in 1Cor:  “to the present hour we both hunger and thirst and we are poorly clothed and homeless”

    Some people join the ANC to become rich, others become wealthy by starting Christian charismatic ministries. They know God is poverty stricken so when they need money, you NEVER see them ask God or his Son for money. It is much easier to shake down the naïve and vulnerable congregations who are too lazy to read the Bible and would rather rely on someone else’s interpretation. If you are going to gather in such huge numbers, rather do it to do something constructive, like protest, rather than continue to line this conman pockets.

      Dear Andrew, relate your story of your walk with Jesus and how you have grown in the knowledge of The Great God of the Bible. Do not talk of others, it sucks, it speaks a language foreign to the Bible. If however you have a revelation from God. Share the very moment you received it. Where you were, what you were doing and how you reacted. Maybe you have scripture to corraborate your message. God Is Love.

    Don’t care about religion when it comes to prayer.
    Pray as you normally pray from all religions.we need God to save our country.
    A prayer is always welcome.

    This is BIG. Can you imagine. A free event. Nothing is allowed to be sold there. No collection taking place. Just 2 hours of prayer. 1.7 million registered. The call to pray came a mere 6 weeks ago. Christians are responding. This is about HOPE and our land.
