Despatch joins ‘up4sa’ prayer day

2016-02-25 06:00

Throughout South Africa all Christian churches will come together with one vision – to Unite in Pray for South Africa (up4sa)!

A total of 48 towns from across South Africa have already registered as a prayer point.

Dr. Isak Burger, President of the AFM Church of South Africa, recently made the statement that “It is encouraging when people realize their need of God. Difficult times and crises always remind people of their weakness and need of someone greater than themselves.”

It is thus with excitement and urgency that all ministers, pastors and assemblies are invited to join the national hour of prayer on Sunday, 28 February. In Despatch the prayer will be held at the central sports grounds at 17:00.

  • The aim of the event is for South Africans to stand together and unite as one nation, praying for a better and more blessed country. For more information contact Pastor Corrie Muller 072 060 23339 or visit
