I have recently received a letter from a lady in South Africa who came across our website.  She told me about how in 1994 in South Africa, at the time of independence, it was the power of prayer that avoided great bloodshed.  She says that there were 24 hour prayer houses operating nationwide at that time, with much repenting and fasting.  Obviously the danger to South Africa at that time was great, and that was an incentive to pray.

Thankfully in Northern Ireland at this time, while there are still considerable dangers, it is not nearly as serious as it used to be.  Nonetheless, if we want to move our country forward, together, we need to be showing a real commitment in prayer.
