THE sound of glos­so­lalia and prophetic lan­guage will re­ver­ber­ate in the In­cred­i­ble Hap­pen­ing Church on Satur­day, Novem­ber 5 when peo­ple from all walks of life con­verge to pray for rain.

Or­gan­ised by church leader Paseka Mboro

” ” Mot­soe­neng, the five­hour na­tional prayer ses­sion will start at 8am and end at 1pm.

The ses­sion will be broad­cast live on Soweto TV from 11am to 12pm.

Among dig­ni­taries in­vited to the oc­ca­sion was Min­is­ter of Wa­ter and San­i­ta­tion Nomvula Mokonyane and Ekurhu­leni mayor Mzwandile Masina.

Mot­soe­neng con­firmed he or­gan­ised the com­mu­nion in a bid to end the drought that is crip­pling the agri­cul­tural sec­tor. The agri­cul­tural sec­tor con­tri“butes about 2.2% of the GDP, so it is a sig­nif­i­cant sec­tor which re­lies largely on the rain to thrive. So with­out the rain, the sec­tor will suf­fer and af­fect our econ­omy, which is hardly grow­ing,” he said. Mot­soe­neng added the grow­ing call by the gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions for peo­ple to pre­serve and save wa­ter also pre­cip­i­tated them to con­vene the ses­sion. While they are coming “up with ways to save this pre­cious re­source that is wa­ter we want to ask God to make it rain so our dams and reser­voirs can be filled.” Mokonyane s spokesman ’ Mli­man­dela Ndamase said she was con­sid­er­ing the in­vi­ta­tion. Masina said he would at­tend if he was avail­able.
