Two Ongoing Calls to Pray during 2017:
Pray for the Commonwealth Nations 2017 – April 2018
We are seeking 70 houses of prayer in Australia to each adopt and pray for one of the 70 Commonwealth nations who will come to Australia for the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast 4-15 April 2018. The prayer began in March 2017 to accompany the Queen’s Baton which is being carried to different nations. See the nations that need your prayer and how to register. We are praying in a teleconference each Friday for the nations. To join this contact: Rudi Bam email@example.com.
Raise the Cross Haasts Bluff, NT- An Indigenous Call
Help Raise the Cross in the centre of Australia as recognition that Jesus died for all our sins and has been raised to life – and is life to all who believe. John 12:32 “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
Indigenous elders separately received visions of a huge cross in the heart of Australia.
Ken Duncan, photographer, and many others have come alongside to help them implement this vision. They have walked through opposition, but are on track to erect an enormous cross on Memory Mountain to the glory of God outside of Haasts Bluff, NT. Ongoing Prayer and Support: Pray for this project and support this financially.

Pray for Melbourne: Events
17-22 August More Conference & College: Bill Johnson and James Maloney at Stairway Church Whitehorse, 171 Rooks Rd Vermont Register
Note this extraordinary letter:
Dear Apostles McHugh,
What a distinct privilege it is in being with you in this upcoming event! I call it an event for several reasons:
The prophet Bob Jones, one month before his “homecoming,” spoke of a “shift in the Spirit” beginning March 11, 2017. The revelation of the word is awe-inspiring, but right now I’m endeavoring to retrieve it exactly as he spoke it.
Anyway, on March 13 at 10:30 pm, I was visited by a messenger angel who stood at the foot of my bed. This wasn’t visionary, nor in a dream; the messenger was fully visible on this natural plane, which is an extremely rare occurrence for me. The content of the word was of a very personal nature concerning the Lord’s ministry He has entrusted to me.
But it was revealed to me, through this encounter, that your event with Bill Johnson and me will be a “pivotal point” for a breaker anointing that will be released. Not the only one, of course, but one of many releases for the whole Body of Christ. A fore-running release that will be imparted by “two fathers” in this hour. It will begin to activate — in our portion, again, just one of many — a people in “the Army of the Lord movement.” This will usher in the coming “Kingdom of the Lord establishment movement.”
The angel told me this was set in motion on March 11, and it starts with your church’s event. (Again, with our portions — I know we are not the only ones establishing this.) I am so excited for you and your congregation, Apostles!
One of my dearest friends and colleagues, Bill Johnson (a true father), will share in this! He has spoken so very highly of you and the church.
A word was given to me in my early twenties (I’m 61 now), stated in Job, “…though your beginning will be small, at the latter end you shall greatly increase.” It means “rapid acceleration” at the end, and I believe this is the time, Brother and Sister! I’ve waited nearly 50 years for this time. I was also told, back when I was 20, pastoring a church in Kentucky, during a visitation encounter, that it would be released in a journey to Australia! Can you imagine how excited I am? Needless to say, I’m pumped!
What a privilege it will be in being with you and Bill for this momentous occasion! May we all experience “the whirlwind of His pleasure.” Thank you again.
Under His wing,
Dr. James E. Maloney

16-20 October The Gospel Banquet
Mission: We are believing for an awakening to take place in the body of Christ, so that Jesus gets what He paid for in full. The Gospel Banquet is a gathering of leaders from across the Church of Melbourne for a discipleship school intensive on the Gospel of Jesus, feasting on the Word of God and digging deep into revelation of the new creation through the new covenant. Over the five days we will be together hearing messages, eating meals as a family and asking and answering the tough questions as we do life on life together.
To see the leadership of the Church in Melbourne walk in the revelation of the power of the Gospel and in righteousness.
To empower pastors and leaders to bring a fresh awakening of the good news of Jesus to their spheres of influence.
The heart of the Gospel Banquet is for every person to comprehend their design for divine union with Christ, in order to walk in full intimacy with God. We believe that the Bride is to be awakened to her glorious state so she can walk in freedom, power and love, as Jesus has called and enabled her.
We are excited about what God is doing in our own lives and others around the nation and we really desire to unify to see disciples made and cities transformed for His glory. We encourage you to pray and really consider coming along for these five days to be awakened to what Jesus has already paid for.
