Prayer Call has emerged since September 2017 as an open community praying online for Australia. People from all over Australia meet to pray as watchmen in our nation – across 4 time zones during day light saving!
God’s presence in these prayer calls is usually palpable – like a morning shower under a water fall. We spend time praising God and let the Holy Spirit leads us in how to pray. Usually we spend some time with everyone and some in small breakout groups. Meeting via ‘Zoom’ helps us connect as a community. It enables us to see each other, play worship music and share documents, use ‘chat’ to document Scriptures and send public and private messages to each other during the call.
Prayer Call Times:
Currently Prayer Call is from 7am-8am (AEDT) Mondays – Saturdays. (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day)
From 24 January 2018, times will extend to include 8:00pm-9:30pm (AEDT) during the:
