Jericho Walls International Prayer Network Call to pray for an end to the drought in South Africa and for people to turn back to God Our country is experiencing a long and devastating drought in many areas – especially the Eastern Cape, Karoo, Northern Cape, as well as the Southern and Western Cape regions.
