The team at the Canberra Declaration, after much consultation with Christian leaders, feels challenged to call the Nation to Pray & Fast for rain in October.
James Condon, the Chairman of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting, and the Executive Team of the NDOPF are also endorsing this prayer call to break the drought, as are many other Christian leaders, Churches and Christian Ministries all over the nation.
We invite you to register to join us this coming Thursday night, the 26th of September at 8PM AEST, for a special Revival & Rain Zoom Webinar to celebrate the launch of this historic Prayer Call to break the drought.
This coming Thursday night, you will hear from Jeff Daly, founder of the USA National Day of Repentance, and Chris Broheir, a well-known Christian barrister, on the proposed Freedom of Religion legislation inquiry. (Get your submission in before 2 October 2019). Two other key guests will be Ps Dave Jackson, the founder of Western Care Ministries (see above video), and Ps Jenny Hagger AM, one of Australia’s greatest prayer leaders. Other key leaders will join us as well.
Every state in Australia has encountered some level of drought over the last several years. Some areas of Northern NSW and Southern Queensland, as well as WA, SA and NT, are equal to the driest on record, some say the worst drought ever.
Some towns are about to run out of water, and some towns have run out of water. Elders Long Range Forecast shows little indication of significant rain over the next 28 days. The Bureau of Meteorology are forecasting a hot dry spring and summer.
We are offering some Special Download links which will give you resources in the area of prayer & fasting when you register for the Revival & Rain Webinar. So don’t miss out!
This period of unified interdenominational Prayer and Fasting has been inspired by the Catholic Church’s call for Prayer and Fasting for Marriage & Family for the month of October every year for the last three years.
We believe we have an opportunity to build on this record of unified prayer and increase the level of prayer across Australia.
The team at the Canberra Declaration will coordinate daily digital devotions from National Church leaders, including Aboriginal Christian leaders. Register here to receive the daily devotions for the month of Prayer & Fasting for Rain from the 1st – 31st of October 2019.
We would love to see people of faith from the cities unite and actually go to the drought-affected areas to pray in situ and render practical assistance in coordinated effort to ”Bless the Bush”. The Canberra Declaration is partnering with Dave Jackson from Western Air Care Ministries to Bless the Bush.
Hear from Ps Dave Jackson at the Revival & Rain Webinar this coming Thursday.
Australia has a desperate need for RAIN, but we have an even more desperate need for God. We pray that as we get down on our knees to pray for RAIN in October that God will give us the grace of REPENTANCE and the RENEWAL of our love for our Father in Heaven. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
- Pray for Repentance – Father, give us the grace to repent as a nation in Jesus’ Name: “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” (Acts 3:19)
- Pray for Renewal – Lord, we pray for renewal in our hearts, in the church, in the community and in the nation: “And now I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken… The Lord is long-suffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving the iniquity and transgression (of the nation) … Pardon the iniquity of this people I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy… Then God said, ‘I have pardoned according to your word’.” (Numbers 14:17-20)
