It is alleged that in South Africa, femicide rate is five times more than the global rate. Key findings from the many surveys which have been done on this matter included that in South Africa, every 8 hours a woman is killed and at least half of these women die [at] the hands of their intimate partner.
The scourge of violence against women and children has encouraged people across the country to unite and seek change together. Many South Africans, of all races, took action in fighting the battle against this brutality. A number prayer services were held, marches were conducted and thousands of men formed campaigns, emphasizing that ” man are protectors and not perpetrators”.
It is amazing to see the levels decreasing slowly but surely. Prayer is the perfect tool to change this nation. As it is written in the bible, when two or three are gathered in the name of the Lord, He shall also be amongst the and giving them authority.
“Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be, having been bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be, having been loosed in Heaven.”
