Christians and Churches to gather to pray for our Nation’s destiny

  • Written by  Ian Anderson

The 5th Australian National Day of Prayer & Fasting will take place on Sunday 15 February 2015. 

Once again Christians will gather in the Great Hall of Parliament House in Canberra to pray and fast for Australia. Local churches Australia-wide are also encouraged to participate on the day by celebrating the event during their own church services.

The prayer focus this year is that Australia will recapture its destiny in Christ.

“Our aim is to make it possible for more and more Australians to pray and fast for the revival and transformation of our nation,” said Ps Matt Prater, Chairman of the Organising Team. “We are excited by the growing momentum for prayer and fasting.”

Dr Graham McLennan, a member of the team and co-founder of the Australian Christian Heritage Research Institute asserts, “For Australia to find its destiny we must first understand our Christian heritage. The National Day of Prayer & Fasting will therefore have a strong focus on Christian foundations and history of Australia.”

“We have a famine of the Word of God in this land,” adds Warwick Marsh from The Fatherhood Foundation.

“As a nation we have rejected the one, true and living God. The Martin Place tragedy and the recent news from France spur us on to pray and fast that Australia will come back to Jesus Christ and find its destiny in God,” he said.

Following the National Day of Prayer & Fasting will be the 40 Days of Delight.

“This extended time of prayer and fasting affirms that our personal and national destiny is found as we delight ourselves in the Lord,” said organiser Sue Tinsworth.

“It will take place during the forty days of Lent from Ash Wednesday 18 February to Palm Sunday 29 March 2015. Daily devotions will be sent to those who register and be available on-line.”
