Support for prayer in Brisbane City Council

Strong public support shown for prayer to continue in Council meetings.

The petition affirming the legitimacy of a Christian prayer being included in the opening to Council meetings closed with 1,323 signatures.

The petition for the removal of Christian prayer from Council meetings closed with 862 signatures.

“As the reading of a prayer is a long standing tradition in all levels of government in Australia, this practice will continue to be followed during Council meetings.”

–Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner

Join us in specific prayer
