Namibia hosts National Day of Prayer

Thousands of Namibians on Sunday congregated in 34 towns to pray in what has become the biggest gathering of believers in a single day worldwide.

Started in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001, the day that is now observed the world over was set aside for people to repent and seek God's face on issues facing their different nations.

In Namibia, the day was marked by song, dance and processions of flags portraying the different nations in Africa and the release of 120 doves signifying the release of the Holy Spirit.

In Windhoek alone, between 3500 and 4000 gathered at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Katutura to pray for the country's President Hifikepunye Pohamba, for Christ's love to influence the Swapo Congress and for its delegates to make the right decisions and appoint a party leader that is best for Namibia's future, for wisdom on challenges like land redistribution, education, job-creation, and upliftment of the poor.


I'd never heard of this Global Day of Prayer, but it sounds like a great idea.
