Welcome to Graham Power's page


Graham Power, is the founder and Chairman of the Power Group of Companies, formed in 1983. 

Today the Power Group is  one of Southern Africa’s leaders in the field of civil  engineering

construction,  turnkey property development and infrastructure.  Graham has repurposed his

company into a powerful tool for transformation in God’s hands that is impacting his industry, the

nation and even the world. Please visit www.powergrp.co.za  for more information on the  Power

Group of Companies.

Graham accepted Christ as his saviour in 1999 – an event that transformed his own life, his family

and his business.

In 2001 Graham was the visionary leader who initiated a gathering in Cape Town that saw 45 000

Christians fill Newlands Stadium to pray for the needs of their nation. Today this movement has

become the largest prayer gathering in recorded history, where people from every country in the

world participate annually in the Global Day of Prayer on Pentecost Sunday.  It is estimated that over

400 million people participated in the year 2010. Please visit www.globaldayofprayer.com  for more


Graham is also the founder of the Unashamedly Ethical Campaign. This campaign promotes values,

ethics and clean living across all sectors of society.  This campaign is currently sweeping South Africa,

Africa and across the Globe and is bringing about a tangible change to the lives of individuals, and

even whole companies. Please visit www.unashamedlyethical.com  for more information.

Graham  is  57 years old and  has been married to  his wife,  Lauren, for 34 years. They have three

children and four grandchildren, all of whom live in Somerset West, South Africa.

Along with Diane Vermooten, Graham is the author, of the book Not by Might, Nor by Power.  This

book tells the remarkable story of the growth of the Global Day of Prayer and the birth of

Unashamedly Ethical.  It is a gripping and inspiring testimony of God’s power in response to

obedience and faith!

In a second book; Transform Your Work Life, Graham and Dion Forster share testimony and teaching

on what God has done with them and what God wants to do with and through Christians in the


Your work life is one of the most accessible and significant mission fields in the world. Graham and

Dion offer some truly practical, sometimes challenging, hopefully inspiring insights into the tools and

processes that you can use to transform your ordinary day into an extraordinary calling and by doing

so transform your work life.

Graham is the first to say that God deserves all the Glory and the Honour for this miraculous work! 

Truly, the stories of the Global Day of Prayer and Unashamedly Ethical are not the stories of one

man’s determination, neither are they stories about mighty global organizations, rather, they are a

testimony to God’s Power and Grace!

A few personal awards for Graham include: Junior and Businessman awards in Johannesburg and

Cape Town (1990, 2002 and 2005), City of Cape Town Civic Award for Social Affairs and Services
