National Day Of Prayer

Motsepe Foundation And 33 Religious And Faith-based Organisations Announce The “2018 National Day Of Prayer For All South Africans”


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 whose names appear on the attached document (Annexure 1) and they will:

  • pray for the unity of all South Africans of all races and languages;
  • pray for an end to poverty, corruption and crime, particularly crimes against women and children;
  • pray for the creation of jobs, equality of opportunities and the provision of quality education and skills;
  • pray for the current land reform discussions to result in land being made available for black people living in the rural and urban areas and to their communities and for a successful and secure future for black and white farmers;
  • pray for peaceful, fair and just elections in 2019;
  • pray for God’s guidance, leadership and blessings for a bright future for all South Africans.

Each of the Religious and Faith-based Organisations may expand or add to the above prayers when they lead the congregation in prayer at the FNB Stadium.
The “2018 National Day of Prayer for All South Africans” will take place:
Date : 25 November 2018
