Jesus is Awakening our Nation & our Local Cities

We invite you, as the Body of Christ, to pray for Jesus to be received by the people around us in and for Jesus’ kingdom to transform our city! Pray others will join you to pray for your local region! Pray for the emergence of harvest workers and saved souls. Pray for collaboration to implement God’s transformation strategies.

LEADERS

We are seeking to identify prayer coordinators for every local city (municipalities) across Australia. Contact: sue @partnersinprayer.org.au

Pray father-hearted spiritual leaders will emerge in your local city to help identify issues needing prayer, evangelistic or missional initiatives that can be supported by prayer and evidence of answers to prayer. We welcome local leaders to communicate regularly with us: sue @partnersinprayer.org.auPray for Local City Prayer Coordinators in each Australian municipality. They will gather the body of Christ to pray for Jesus to Awaken Australia and local cities everywhere.

These are some strategies being used in local cities in Melbourne and other nations:

Melbourne’s Local Cities Prayer Plan

If you pray for Melbourne you may like to  pray for one of our 31 local cities each day every month. See MELBOURNE’S  31 DAY 31 LOCAL CITIES PRAYER PLAN pdf The local city prayer dates are listed below. Copy them to your phone calendar for daily prompts. (In months with less than 31 days, we pray for the remaining cities on the final day of the month.)

OUR LOCAL CITY DAY OF PRAYER

Pray many take up spiritual responsibility to pray for your local city on one day each month! Note your local city’s day of prayer in your calendar and make it a regular prayer date with friends! Pray to discern what God is saying about your local city. Pray your eyes and heart will be open to see the needs and blessings of your local city. Pray local churches will host local prayer gatherings and prayer walks. Encourage them but don’t wait on others – initiate this! The day on which others across Melbourne are praying for your local city is an optimal time to share Jesus with your family & friends, neighbours & colleagues.

Use the www.PrayfortheNations.com online map to find and pray over local homes, streets, churches, hospitals, schools, clubs, parks – online!

COLLABORATION

Pray that grass root collaborations form among neighbours, workmates, school groups, university groups and local churches to host prayer meetings and prayer-walking  in our streets, neighbourhoods, towns and regions across Melbourne and Victoria. Register your public gatherings at www.PrayfortheNations.com so they will appear as flames on the map – enabling local people to join you. Collaboration can extend to standing together to address local city issues with local schools, businesses, businesses, sport clubs, media, government, etc. It is powerful when local churches unite and approach local councils to ask, “How can we help you?”

ASSEMBLE A LOCAL 24/7 PRAYER CHAIN

Pray churches unite in continuous day and night prayer for a spiritual awakening! Local churches can work together to set up a prayer chain of continuous day and night prayer on their local day of prayer each month. You can simply start a 24 hour day of prayer chain with 12 locals who will pray 2 hours each or 24 church members praying 1 hour each.

Once your local churches have experienced the benefits of a day of prayer – they may be willing to host a continuing prayer chain for for more than 1 day a month! Some local cities first hold some 3 day prayer chain during key calls to prayer.

But we suggest aiming for continuous prayer & worship arising from your region or local city. It is as simple as 31 local churches each hosting 24/7 prayer for 1 day a month! On their Day2Pray, a local church can host their 24/7 prayer at one location or in private homes or a combination.

A GLOBAL MOVEMENT

Be encouraged to see how God is using local day and night prayer chains to impact cities around the world!

In Whatcom County, Washington State, USA the local churches introduced church prayer chains and saw 70% church growth from 2005-2011! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRBq_9KO8Ts  See the Whatcom Story 2 (2017) Transforming a County with 24/7 Prayer – 5 years later.
