PROLIFE PRAYER DAY 19: Church, Arise

19 August 2019

3.6 MINS

The Church is the Solution

Four to five million Australians don’t exist in our nation today, because of legalised abortion! They would be aged fifty years right through to newborns. We legally destroyed a multitude of people that may have been problem-solvers, perhaps those who could have discovered ways to turn our deserts into abundant food production. Maybe some were destined to be great evangelists bringing hundreds of thousands to salvation. They carried a myriad of incredible destinies in God.

I will Build My Legislative Assembly

Jesus is building His Church. With the wisdom and grace given from above, we are the legislative assembly of believers and the power of death will not be able to overpower us.

Simon Peter spoke up and said, “You are the Anointed One, the Son of the living God!”

Jesus replied, “You are favoured and privileged, Simeon, son of Jonah! For you didn’t discover this on your own, but my Father in Heaven has supernaturally revealed it to you. I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this truth of who I am will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build my church—my legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it! I will give you the keys of Heaven’s kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in Heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in Heaven.”
~ Matthew 16:17-19 TPT

The Greek word for “church” is ekklesia and means “legislative assembly” or “selected ones.” This is not a religious term at all, but a political and governmental term that is used many times in classical Greek for a group of people who have been summoned and gathered together to govern the affairs of a city. For Jesus to use this term means He is giving the keys of governmental authority in His kingdom to the Church – and that the Church is to bring a shift in culture to Kingdom culture on the earth (as it is in Heaven).

Jesus spoke this truth standing at the most vile, demonic place of idolatry and debauchery at that time, literally the gates of Hades (Caesarea Philippi), revealing to His disciples that He will build His church that will not be overpowered by these powers of darkness, or be able to hold out against her. It’s time we stepped up to fulfil this role as the governing Ekklesia.

The Lord is teaching His people how to continue to pray in ways to shift our Nation.

They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
~ Revelation 12:11




Prayer: Lord, in Your powerful Truth, reveal every part of these bills that You want to expose, so every Australian becomes aware of the true situation. Open up the floodgate of testimonies of Jesus that women and others need to hear. Provide a way of escape when faced with the news of unplanned pregnancies. Remove the veils from the eyes of those who need to see clearly, and awaken the gift of repentance that leads to freedom, forgiveness and salvation.

Lord, raise up Your legislative assembly of believers; inspire us as one to pray the prayers to shift and stop these bills. Fortify Your people to be vigilant and relentless in pursuit of lives being preserved in our Nation. In Jesus’ Name, by which every knee shall bow and every tongue confess You are Lord, Amen.

Points for Prayer:

The NSW Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 and proposed Abortion Reform Bill SA:

Pray to stop the following:

  • Abortion on demand up to 22 weeks in NSW and 28 weeks in SA;

  • Abortion between 22 weeks NSW/ 28 weeks SA and up to the day of birth, when two doctors agree that, “in all the circumstances” the abortion should be performed. “Circumstances” that must be considered include “current and future physical, psychological and social circumstances”.

  • Doctors will be forced to take part in the abortion, or refer to another Doctor who will. Conscientious objection would not be permitted;

  • Sex-selective abortion (which may have already resulted in the deaths of Over 23 Million Girls worldwide)

  • No cooling-off period.

  • 150-metre exclusion Zones for anyone wanting to approach a woman/man going into an Abortion Centre

  • Selling Medical Abortions that will be available “over the counter” especially for women in rural and remote regions – not understanding nearly 10 percent of these end in haemorrhaging or other complications, and the woman needing a surgical procedure afterwards (something like 82% of those women).

  • Offer little or no unbiased counselling pre-abortion.

Spend time today listening to the Lord, and Pray what is on His Heart.


Today as we stand together ‘as one’ in prayer and fasting may the Lord:

STOP the proposed Abortion Reform Bill in South Australia – Statutes Amendment (Abortion Law Reform) Bill.

STOP the New South Wales Abortion BillThe Reproductive Healthcare Reform Bill 2019

Push Back and eventually STOP Abortion in every state and territory in Australia!

SHIFT the culture of this Nation to Mercy, Peace, Righteousness and Justice
