A citywide movement of God is always preceded by fervent prayer and a renewed commitment to the gospel.
Save the date!
On Wednesday February 26, 2020, the Luis Palau Association, International Mission Board, African Enterprise, and other amazing organizations are hosting a citywide prayer event for Jozi at Rosebank Union Church.
The city of Johannesburg is home to 8 million people in the metro area; many of whom do not embrace the Christian Faith. We live in a time when our great city is defined by a high violent crime rate, rampant unemployment, gender-based violence, and recent outbreaks of xenophobia. Darkness seems to pervade the city. God has placed the church in this great city to be a light to the nations and to deeply impact Southern Africa’s greatest city. We need to move out of our churches to see the Gospel transform this city! The power of prayer on the prosperity of a city cannot be underestimated! The Luis Palau Association is passionate about proclaiming the Gospel, Uniting the Church, and impacting cities worldwide. We are thrilled to be able to see this happen in Joburg in increasing ways.
What do we see?
We see a city where God’s peace reigns, where the Gospel is proclaimed with power and in unity through the church in a way that leads to lasting change in our culture. We see a city where churches work together for God’s Kingdom and where pastors no longer view one another with suspicion and disregard. We see a united voice in our city that speaks to the many social ills that pervade the city. We see God at work like never before!
Our vision is to unite 100 churches across denominations for this first event and to saturate the city in prayer. We seek to elevate evangelism and open avenues for collaborative partnership in South Africa’s leading city so the Gospel may go out, churches will be renewed and our city will thrive!
Here’s what you can do!
