These are awesome days to be part of praying for Australia. Our nation – all Australians – need Jesus so much!
Our current focus is an invitation for you to join with others nationally in the 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting –originally initiated by Transforming Melbourne- which is now linked with the National Day of Prayer and Fasting.
I write on behalf of the National Day of Prayer and Fasting Team to invite you to participate in Australia’s
- National Day of Prayer and Fasting on Sunday February 19 www.nationaldayofprayer.com.au
- 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting from February 22–April 1 www.40daysofprayer.com.au
The over arching theme of these linked events is God’s revival and transformation for our nation through the salvatoin and discipling of souls – Australian lives. The daily 40 Day Prayer Guide can be downloaded from the website. Be refreshed by spending 40 days focussing on Jesus and the good news of the gospel and by fasting and praying by name, for Aussies you know, who need to meet Jesus.
You will find more information on the websites (above) – including a place to register that you are participating and ways you can be involved. On both websites there are you-tube clips that you can use in church on February 19 for the National Day of Prayer and Fasting and leading up to the 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting. Encourage people who are praying within local church gatherings on Sunday 19th February and during the 40 Days –Sundays 26th Feb, 4th, 11th 18th 25th March and 1st April – to be aware that others are also praying for Australia and for Australians to receive Jesus. Please pass this invitation onto your friends and networks.
Local churches are hosting prayer groups at locations across Australia during the 40 days. If you would like to host a prayer meeting, you can register this via www.40daysofprayer.com.au. Fliers and posters are available from Koorong and Word stores or can be posted.

Together – with God – we can make a difference!
