Farmer Evangelist Angus Buchan is calling on all South Africans to come out in numbers on the 22nd of April, in support of the National Prayer Day which will be hosted in Bloemfontein. Tired of people taking the law into their own hands, Buchan says the main goal behind the gathering is to call upon The Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to the nation.
The event will take place at a farm outside Bloemfontein in the Free State and is expected to attract a crowd of a million believers from all walks of life. “I really believe this is the last chance that we will have in South Africa to bring normality back to this beloved nation,” the evangelist said, urging all believers to cancel any other commitments on that day and to attend the prayer gathering.
Buchan believes that it is time to stop pointing fingers, disparaging and insulting, and to acknowledge that we are all to blame in some or other way and should embrace one another in Christ.
According to a press release by Shalom Ministries, the seed for the gathering was planted when a video did the rounds on social media with a desperate outcry for Buchan or any other spiritual leader in South Africa to intervene and arrange such an event. When Buchan replied by posting a video on social media, he received 1.8 million responses within hours.
“The day of prayer is intended for all South Africans of all genders, races and denominations who are concerned about the malice, hatred, violence, murder and corruption in the country,” he added.
