Taking Port Elizabeth’s Beaches Back

An anti-crime “prayer walk” to “take our beaches back” is being
organised by a number of churches across the metro and in
with the South African Police Service for Saturday, November 21.

Laverne Gadiah, Pastor Normah Msizi, Joan Keeling and Ellenor Lotter“The Beach Prayer
Walk is being organised to combat the acts of
violence and the tremendous immorality happening on our beaches, says
co-ordinator Joan Keeling of the United Prayer Movement.

It follows a successful intercession by ministers from Gelvandale,
Helenvale and Schauder, who together with the South African Police
Service prayer team, and with the support of Assistant Area
Commissioner Dawie Rabie “prayer walked the streets of Gelvandale,
Helenvale, Schauder and the surrounding areas.

“The results have been amazing and all the glory goes to God!

“Recently one of the members of this Prayer Walking Team was told by a
very reliable SAPS source that the violent crime statistics in those
areas have more than halved – after the team began prayer walking,”
says Keeling.

She says all congregations are being invited to participate in the
interdenominational Beach Prayer Walk. Participants are urged to attach
red balloons to their cars to send out the message that the people of
the metro are fighting against crime.

“Families with children are welcome to participate and non-walkers are
asked to park along the way and pray,” she says.

“The aim is to pray against the criminal activity on the beaches and to
pray against the immorality rife at the beachfront. This immoral
behaviour – such as parking in secluded spots after dark, has often
resulted in these people being a target for crime & violence.
“The Prayer Walk is also to pray blessing on our beaches in preparation
for the 2010 visiting nations,” she says.

Short prayer walks covering the whole beach-front from Blue Water Bay
to the Sacramento Trail will start at different locations from nine on
Saturday morning, and will end with a time of celebration at the
Noordhoek Ski Boat club from 11 am, finishing at noon.

Cyclists are invited to cover the area from Schoenmakerskop to Flat
Rock – a distance of about 15 kilometres – stopping along the
way for prayer, while motor cyclists are asked to cover the area from
Seaview to Maitlands Drive.

Groups will cover from King’s Beach to the Hobie Pier, Happy Valley to
King’s Beach, Bird Rock to Hobie Pier, Flat Rock to Bird Rock,
Bluewater Bay, Well’s Estate and St George’s Strand.
