AUSTRALIAN PRAYER NETWORK NEWSLETTER
- Week 1 – Preparing Our Hearts so that God can Speak to us of His Will and Purpose.
With the calling of the Federal Elections we now begin a season of prayer which will last for 34 days up to and including the date of the election itself on 7th September. Material for the first week follows below. So that Churches can include the daily prayer points and readings in their Church notices each Sunday, weekly material for subsequent weeks will be sent on the Tuesday of each week commencing this coming Tuesday 6th August
DAY 1 MONDAY 5th AUGUST
Revelation – Pray for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit to bring a conviction of our personal sin as Australians and our corporate sin as a nation, resulting in a much needed awareness that as a nation we have turned away from Almighty God.
Scriptures – Jeremiah 2: 11-13 Colossians 2: 8-10
DAY 2 TUESDAY 6th AUGUST
Repent – Asking God’s forgiveness for where we have in the past failed to collectively pray for our national leaders and Government. Our prayers provide the prayer cover that is necessary for Governments to rule wisely, with Godly authority and in the best interests of all people who make up our nation. When it is not forthcoming, Governments can fall into chaos and confusion but when properly in place righteousness and justice can flow according to God’s perfect will.
Scriptures – 1 Timothy 2:1-6 Romans 13:1-2
DAY 3 WEDNESDAY 7th AUGUST
Regret – Pray for a Holy Spirit transformation of our minds, for a new way of understanding and thinking about the things of God, because as a nation we have failed to give God His rightful place.
Scriptures – Colossians 1:15-20 NLT
DAY 4 THURSDAY 8th AUGUST
Return – Pray for a significant turn back within our nation to the person and teachings of the One true God resulting in a re-direction of the nation’s ways and moral values.
Scriptures – Joel 2:12-13 Revelation 2:4-5
DAY 5 FRIDAY 9th AUGUST
Refresh – Pray for a fresh move of the Holy Spirit to ignite a greater desire in the Christian Church in Australia for the Word of God and the proclamation of the Gospel in our secular society. Pray that the voice of the Church will become a prophetic guiding light to our Governments at both State and Federal level.
DAY 6 SATURDAY 10th AUGUST
Restore – On the Day of Pentecost 14th May 1606 Fernandez de Quiros, in the name of Jesus Christ, took possession of The South Lands of the Holy Spirit, which included Australia. Pray for the restoration of Australia’s Judeo-Christian heritage as the foundation of future governments in this nation.
Scriptures – Ephesians 1:16-18
DAY 7 SUNDAY 11th AUGUST
Renewal – Is a new way of living in the freedom Christ brings through repentance. Pray for the Holy Spirit to renew the Christian Church to a greater place of authority and integrity in an increasing secular society. Pray that a renewed Church will be able to take its rightful place in the authority structure of our nation.
Scriptures – Isaiah 40:31 Romans 12:2
