South Africa: KwaZulu-Natal Observes a Day of Prayer for COVID-19

press release

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala will tomorrow, 26 March 2020, join the KZN Christian Council for a Day of Prayer in the province in the wake of the Coronavirus epidemic.

The Day of Prayer was announced on Monday in Durban following an engagement between the Premier and religious leaders on the impact of Covid-19.

The Day of Prayer was proposed during a meeting of the Church Leaders Group under the auspices of the KwaZulu-Natal Christian Council on Thursday last week.

During the meeting it was discussed that due to the spread of the Coronavirus there must be a prayer for the province for at least one hour.

The Day of Prayer for the province will be held between 12 and 1pm tomorrow and people are urged to pray wherever they are and ask for God's help in prayer to rescue us from the Covid-19 scourge.

However, people are discouraged from praying in groups that may exceed the 100 limit as per the directives announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

An appeal is made to all the people to observe a prayer wherever they are in a manner that will not go against the directives.

Religious leaders have committed themselves to adhering to the government's guidelines to contain the spread of the virus.

Premier Zikalala will join a prayer organized the KZNCC which will be held at their offices at 50 Langalibalele Street in Pietermaritzburg.
