The  AHOP Conference has been postponed until further notice.

In 1976 a few friends with a heartfelt burden for the continent of Africa started talking to God about this continent. They asked Him for help, counsel, guidance and enlightenment so that solutions might be found for the many problems in Africa. God responded in stating His purposes for Africa, giving prophesies, promises and instructions. Thus a House of Prayer was born… In the years to follow it expanded continentally and in 1985 The Africa House of Prayer was registered under the official name of Intercessors for Africa. Its headquarters at present is in Nairobi, Kenya.

VERSE OF THE WEEK

Isaiah 41:17

 

“The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

PRAYER OF THE WEEK 

Psalms 72:1-4

Give the king Your judgments, O God, And Your righteousness to the king’s Son. 2 He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice. 3 The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness. 4 He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.

God loves all people and cares for all irrespectively. YHWH is a God of justice and therefore takes exception to the oppression of the poor and injustices to the weak. YHWH does not prefer one from another but we see He has a character of defending the weak and bringing to judgement those who oppress the weak.

The content of prophecy in the Bible is primarily God’s relationship with Israel as one God who Has a covenant with them therefore idolatry is the breaking of that covenant relationship. Prophets rose to castigate Israel, their kings or the entire society about this. Secondly, the prophets castigated Israel, her kings and the society depending how they treated their poor and the weak.

Isaiah 1:21-23 How the faithful city has become a harlot! It was full of justice; Righteousness lodged in it, But now murderers. 22 Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with water. 23 Your princes are rebellious, And companions of thieves; Everyone loves bribes, And follows after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, Nor does the cause of the widow come before them.

Jeremiah 22:3 Thus says the Lord: “Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.

  1. Repent both at a personal level and on behalf of your nation for oppressing the weak and the poor
  2. Ask God to forgive us for the disparities we have allowed and continue to perpetuate from colonial times against our fellow citizens and employees
  3. Ask God to forgive us for allowing political systems that have no feelings for the poor nor puts any investment to alleviate their suffering
  4. Ask God to break the system that allows the general population to remain poor to be taken advantage of as voters
