About The National Day Of Prayer

In November 2017 the Motsepe Foundation and 33 Religious and Faith-based Organisations hosted the “2017 National Day of Prayer for All South Africans” which was very successful and attended by more than 100 000 people.

On the 25th of November 2018 at 8h00 thousands of people will once more assemble at the FNB Stadium for the “2018 National Day of Prayer for all South Africans” which will once again be hosted by the Motsepe Foundation and the 33 Religious and Faith-based Organisations

The “2018 National Day of Prayer for All South Africans” will also, as was the case in 2017, be attended by prominent South African Kings and Traditional Leaders, representatives of the 33 Religious and Faith-based Organisations and their congregations, government and business leaders, representatives from the major political parties in South Africa, as well as representatives from trade union, non-governmental and community-based organisations.

Everybody is invited to attend the “2018 National Day of Prayer for All South Africans”.
