Women pray for SA

God-based women's organisation raises the flag of freedom and prays for the nation.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the realisation of a democratic dispensation in South Africa.

Freedom Day (April 27) is set as a reminder of those who fought along the brutal struggle of the apartheid regime, and in celebration of this day, the Woman Without Limits global outreach came together to pray and raise the flag under the theme of Preserving the Destiny of Our Nation.

The God-based Woman organisation saw about 150 women of all ages and walks of life come together physically and in spirit at Florida Lake to pray for different issues and departments in the country.

The programme featured various activities and assigned pastors to lead prayer sessions on specific issues, and it displayed unity and solidarity.

Reverend Chikoadi Emeka Vision, the driver and organiser of the event, believes that it is their duty as women of the country to come together and pray, as there are also references in the Bible about the powerful prayers of a woman.

“We want to create a spiritual atmosphere for the nation. As women, we understand the importance of coming together in times of celebration and struggle. We will pray for our communities, upcoming elections, government and leaders, the educational sector, all forms of violence in SA, youth and children, and military and parliamentary institutions,” she said.

Emeka also mentioned that they will also pray for the repentance of the whole nation.

The foundation has been around for eight years, and they are a non-denominational women’s ministry that offers counselling, charity drives, and empowers women spiritually and physically.

They are also dedicated to empowering youth and are passionately committed to helping them make informed decisions.

The group has plans to continue its outreach efforts and work towards creating a more inclusive and supportive society for women. They believe that through prayer and activism, they can make a positive impact and bring about positive change in the community.
