Australia needs prayer. Pray for our leaders, that they would exalt righteousness; pray that God’s people in Australia would live godly lives; pray that the testimony of our lives of godliness would be used to spread the truth to all Australians.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions…”
–1 Tim 2:1-2a
"In advocating for religious freedom and the gospel, we must not merely be people who act, but even more importantly, people who pray."
Join us in prayer…
