Global Intercessors – a non-denominational prayer network – in collaboration with Higher Life Foundation, a social investment organisation with a footprint across Africa, has begun a 90-day prayer campaign for the continent.
The Lift-Up Africa Campaign, which has been localised to Zimbabwe since 2021, has been expanded in scope to include all 54 African countries.
It started in January last year as a prayer for Zimbabwe during the second wave of Covid-19.
In a statement, Higher Life Foundation head of communications Mr Christopher Charamba said the prayer sessions will focus on elections in Zimbabwe, the continent’s economy, youth, trade and industry.
“Prayer leaders from different denominations and countries will lead the two 30-minute daily prayer sessions at 6.30am and 8.30pm.
“The morning prayer sessions will focus on elections in Zimbabwe. The evening leg will touch on an array of issues, including the continent’s economy, the youth, trade and industry, among other areas in need of intercession raised by participants,” he said.
The campaign is running through the Global Intercessors Facebook Page and via Zoom from January 23 to April 22.
Mr Charamba said there is a 24-hour prayer platform in-between sessions, where those in need of prayers can log in anytime to fellowship with fellow intercessors.
“Bishop Never Muparutsa of the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe led the first-morning prayer, and Mrs Tsitsi Masiyiwa will preside over the opening evening intercession.”
Explaining the idea behind the Lift-Up Africa Campaign, Higher Life Foundation co-chair Mrs Masiyiwa said: “Africa is on the brink of greatness with economic growth, a booming population, increased peace and cutting-edge technology on the rise, but to truly reach our potential, we need to come together in prayer and lift up the continent to the heavens.”
The intercessors will be praying for every region of the continent.
