Leaders in the marriage and family movement have called for 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting for Marriage and Family.

Family breakdown and social dysfunction is an increasing problem in this nation, and sadly the church is not immune. Forty percent of marriages end in divorce in Australia and along with increased cohabitation rates (prone to even higher levels of dissolution) are leading to higher levels of heartbreak.

The current Greens' proposed homosexual marriage bill, if passed, will further weaken marriage and rob children of a mother and a father.

Marriage and family leaders are encouraging churches and individuals to join this urgent call for prayer by initiating special prayer meetings or incorporating the call to prayer into existing activities from Tuesday 1st February to Monday 21st February 2011.
