NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER & FASTING – SAT 2 MARCH 2019 

The National Day of Prayer & Fasting will be held on Saturday 2 March 2019.  Over 50 locations Australia-wide  will celebrate the day with combined church gatherings for prayer, repentance, worship and celebration between 10AM – 4PM, with hundreds of other smaller prayer meetings all around the nation. Many others will celebrate the National Day of Prayer and Fasting with Bible Reading Marathons.

On the National Day of Prayer & Fasting a live web stream will be broadcast from outside Parliament House, Canberra with live crosses to capital cities which will allow people from all over Australia: Perth to Sydney, Darwin to Adelaide and Cairns to Hobart, to be joined together in prayer for the nation.

James Condon, Commissioner with the Salvation Army and Chairman of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting Executive Team said, “Our overarching prayer on this day of prayer is for a National Awakening: for Revival and Transformation for our nation and for great multitudes to find Christ.

We urgently need to see a move of God. Our foundation scripture is 2 Chronicles 7:14, ‘If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.’

We are also praying, in particular, for a new generation of young prayer warriors and young evangelists to arise. The theme for 2019 is ‘Father God’. Jesus said in John 6:4, “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life.”

Warwick Marsh, Coordinator for the National Day of Prayer & Fasting said, “Jesus started his ministry on earth with a special time of 40 days of prayer and fasting. After this period of fasting the scripture says in Luke 4:14 that, ‘Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit.’  John Wesley the famous revivalist from the 1700s said, ‘Have you any days of fasting and prayer? Storm the throne of grace and persevere therein, and mercy will come down.’ 

The National Day of Prayer & Fasting is an opportunity for us as a nation to Storm the throne of Grace,’ as John Wesley said, and cry out for a National Awakening to Christ. Just like Jesus, we need to experience the ‘power of the Spirit’ for both ourselves and our nation. What better way than to Pray and Fast!

We would greatly appreciate if you could pass this invitation on to other prayer leaders and churches in your region and beyond.”
