Australia Day 2008: A Time to Unite


Over 2,000 Christians united in prayer for the nation of Australia in Melbourne today. Organised by 'Catch the Fire' Ministries and supported by many Church leaders/ministers, we gathered to proclaim Australia for Jesus. Here were some of the prayers/highlights:
* Prayers for:
--> Unity in the body of Christ
--> Government Leaders
--> The breaking of the drought and recognition that God was already doing this in Australia!
--> Service men and women, in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor.
--> The next generation of young people, that they would rise up and be bold warriors for Jesus, not bowing down to peer pressure, but bowing down to the Lord!
* Testimony of a guy who at a prayer meeting in Canberra late last year, died of a heartattack in the meeting... Well for atleast twenty minutes, until Jesus brought life back into his bones!
* Awesome worship time with a Samoan Choir...
* Pastor Danny Nalliah asked me to come up and do the closing prayer for this Australia Day gathering. I started off by saying, 'The gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Army of the Lord! Hallelujah!'

(We could have more Salvation Army support for ecumenical events like these...)

It's time for a Revolution. In Australia and of course, the World. Are you ready?
