Earlier this week on Monday May 18 many churches, christian groups, and organizations came together in association with 7 Days on the Wall to kick off a 24/7 prayer movement in Stellenbosch. The purpose for this movement is to create space and encourage people to come and pray to God seeking revival in South Africa, for social justice and for the unsaved to come to know Christ. In partnering with this movement the Stellenbosch Sports Coalition provided a 24 hour space at the “Eiland” that combined sport and prayer together.
Over the 24 hours we saw a few groups come in and take advantage of the prayer space. It was inspiring to see how the different materials and stations, such as maps and newspapers, served as guides which made an impact on the way in which people prayed and what they prayed about.
