THE public is called to support a national prayer day at Kuswag Skool on November 18. Gates open at 8am and the event starts at 10am.

The event is an initiative of The Durban Prayer Day committee and is intended to unite Durban Christians across social divides like denomination, race, gender or social status.

“The Durban Prayer Day committee is a group of believers that have united from various churches to promote unity in the church by striving to restore the hearts of believers to the Lord Jesus.

“We took our inspiration from the ‘It’s Time’ event that was hosted in Bloemfontein on April 22.

A nation can be born in a day, but then needs to start to grow. Our hope is to grow unity and maturity as we strive to encourage a culture of prayer in our city, Durban,” said spokesperson, Riaan­ da Horta.

The organisers aim to prepare prayer days twice a year in the periods leading up to Easter and the festive season, starting in November. These events will ideally continue for five years.

“Our vision is to see the establishment of a strong prayer culture in the city, a culture that will impact the ways communities interact socially.

Also to impact our city with a change in the hearts of people in such a way that it affects peoples’ tolerance and response to crime, abuse, violence, corruption and injustice in their communities and in the city,” Da Horta said.

He added it is their hope this prayer culture will enhance inter-dominational interaction among churches, while promoting the development of unity in the greater church of Jesus Christ.

A praying community in Durban will promote the social acceptance of public prayer and remove traditional apprehensions about a positive prayer life,” Da Horta said.
