Melbourne-Skyline-at-Night-from-Southbank-000057720268_Small

This Melbourne City Prayer  Plan covers our 31 local cities each month  – one of the 31 local cities for each of the 31 days. In months with less than 31 days, we will pray for the remaining cities on the final day. You can enter this sequence into your calendar to repeat as an ongoing feature of your daily prayer. See  31 DAY PRAYER LIST below.

We invite you, as the Body of Christ in Melbourne, to pray for Jesus to be received by the people around us in and for Jesus’ kingdom to transform our city!

OUR LOCAL CITY – OUR LOCAL DAY OF PRAYER: Take up spiritual responsibility to pray for your local city! Enter your local city day of prayer in your calendar and make it a 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 when Melbourne is praying for our local city is an optimal time to share Jesus with your family & friends, neighbours & colleagues. Our Pray for Melbourne Map will enable you to pray over local homes, streets, hospitals, streets, hospitals, schools, clubs parks – and 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 Melbourne 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 PRAYER CHAIN: Pray local churches will work together to set up a prayer chain of continuous day and night prayer on their local day of prayer each month. It will motivate others to pray for your local region! You can simply start a 24 hr prayer chain with 12 locals who will pray 2 hours each or 12 church members or 12 local churches! Prayer can be at one location or at many local churches or in private homes. Once the impact is recognised, local cities will want to host prayer chains for more than 1 day a month!

LEADERS: Pray that 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.au

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 there was 70% church growth from 2005-2011! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRBq_9KO8Ts
