40 Days of Prayer - Day 33

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and slander be put away from you, along with all malice - Ephesians 4:31 (ESV)

South Africa is one of the most developed countries in Africa, yet has the highest percentage (18%) of people living with HIV in the world.

Ask God to unify His people in South Africa and plant seeds of deep compassion that will overcome all tensions in the hearts of those serving the most vulnerable.
