Momentum in Durban’s Economic Awakening
By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted,
But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
For the past two decades, there has been a group of prayers at Incite church that have been meeting regularly to pray for the city of Durban with the specific focus in the area of Spiritual and Economic Awakening. The momentum of these prayers was further realized on Friday night the 4 October 2019 when we were privileged to host an open event under the ‘Men Let’s Talk’ banner with guest speaker Russell Curtis sharing positive economic developments and statistics about our beautiful city. The response was overwhelming, as men from all walks of life came expectant to hear the aspects that were going to be presented on the topic of ‘economic awakening’. Russell’s message was that we become acquainted with the incredible positive facts and prospects of our city and become good news ambassadors for our city wherever we go. Some of these exciting business advantages include the fact that Durban has been voted the number one city for lifestyle of business and pleasure in South Africa, she has the largest human resource pool, she has higher growth rates in investment, is an infrastructure leader, a tourism crown and an award winning city. Russell’s message was very well received by the men, and one could sense that there was a stirring in the hearts of all that attended on the economic front and eyes were opened to the many positive aspects of our city, which are widely unknown. Let’s go in and possess what God has given us. Let’s not always think it is greener on the other side! Durban, our promised land.
