Over 1.7 million South Africans, in what has been described as the biggest prayer gathering in history, got on their knees before God this weekend in Bloemfontein to pray for their beloved country. Citizens of all races, colours, cultures and religious denominations gathered at the free event, hosted by Angus Buchan.
The prayer meeting came about organically, with a WhatsApp video going viral amongst South Africans, calling for a Christian leader to take the initiative and organize a mass gatheribg. When popular preacher Angus Buchan replied by posting a video on social media, he received 1,8 million responses within hours, reports GoodThingsGuys.
Buchan said the day was “indescribable,” declaring, “Father God, we give you all thanks and praise, glory and honour.”
