“It’s going to be in Tshwane / Pretoria. It’s going to be on the 27th of October. And it’s going to be a Watch And Pray meeting,” said a pumped-up Angus Buchan in a special video announcement early this evening.
Answering the questions that have been on many people’s minds since he announced last week that the Lord had laid it on his heart to call another It’s Time prayer meeting, the farmer said God has given him the Scripture Mark 14:38 “Watch and pray lest you fall into temptation.
5 million – that is the number of people expected, in faith, to attend the It’s Time Pretoria prayer gathering on October 27th. At the previous two It’s Time prayer gatherings, in Bloemfontein and in Cape Town, uncle Angus Buchan and his Shalom Ministries team witnessed over 2 million people in attendance. Prayers are going out for the upcoming gathering, which is expected to be the biggest yet. I had the privilege to chat to uncle Angus and find out more about what God has laid on his heart.

“The population of South Africa is buying into this prayer meeting because we are facing a potential civil war — and if God doesn’t intervene we will be in a very bad situation.” “The good news is that God is going to intervene because God’s people are going to come together on the 27th of October at Rhino Park airfield, and we are going to pray.” These were the words of farmer evangelist Angus Buchan during a telephone interview with him yesterday about the It’s Time Pretoria national prayer gathering that is now three weeks and one day away, and which he is urging Christians in SA to attend as a matter of priority.
Former Springbok rugby player and media company boss Warren Brosnihan issued a challenge last week to media and billboard companies to get behind the It’s Time Pretoria event on October 27 by sponsoring media space for what is expected to be the biggest prayer gathering ever seen in South Africa.
And the response to his challenge at a media conference in Pretoria — which is part of an initiative by “Christians In the Industry” (CITI), a group of Christian leaders of media companies — has been magnificent with millions of rands of media sponsorship allocated to reaching millions of people, urging them to attend the prayer day for South Africa called by farmer evangelist Angus Buchan.
With the It’s Time Pretoria prayer day just over a week away Angus Buchan’s priority during this time is to “go up the mountain to prepare my heart for the biggest prayer meeting this country — and I think this continent — has ever seen”. Explaining that his mountain-top time will take place in his prayer room in his farmhouse near Greytown, KwaZulu-Natal, he said that in preparing for the event: “I want to be sensitive to the Lord. I don’t want to be tired. I want to be fresh. I want to be strong. I want to be pertinent.”
When a train carrying 260 Christians from Pretoria to the Western Cape broke down in the middle of the Karoo on Sunday morning the passengers decided to put their faith to the test.
The passengers who had attended the It’s Time Pretoria prayer event had been on the train since 7pm on Saturday and were eager to get home, said Niël Botma of Cape Town.
So when the train manager informed them that they were stranded there for a long time because one of the two locomotives had broken down, all 260 passengers had no hesitation in stepping out into the sweltering heat and doing what they knew best to do in an emergency.
The sweet sound of God’s grace filled the air at It’s Time Pretoria on Saturday as accomplished British trumpeter Dan Newell played Amazing Grace from the platform.
There was an awed hush over the grounds as Newell, who plays for the Royal Opera House, London Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra, trumpeted the hymn composed 240 years ago by slave ship captain-turned clergyman, John Newton.
Farmer evangelist Angus Buchan delivered a forthright word from the Lord to President Cyril Ramaphosa during the It’s Time Pretoria prayer meeting on Saturday.
Speaking to the large crowd of believers, who he had earlier led through prayers of repentance, he said South Africa has tried and exhausted many different plans “but today we are going to change South Africa through the love of Jesus Christ.”
