National Day of Prayer & Fasting

URGENT United Call for Prayer & Fasting

for Marriage and Families

1-31st October

The Australian Catholic Marriage & Family Council recently called for an historic month of prayer and fasting across the nation from 1-31 October.

The National Day of Prayer & Fasting, together with the Canberra Declaration, have called on all Christians from any denomination to also pray and fast through October. Each person is encouraged to fast as you are led and are able to.

Here are some ways that you can be involved.

  • Sign up for daily devotions comprising a scripture, short inspiration and prayer.  These will focus on celebrating and protecting God’s plan for marriage and family.

  • Send this Media Release to your family, friends, contacts and through social media. Encourage your church to get involved.
  • Register for a special Battle for Marriage Webinar 27 September 8pm (Sydney Time). You will hear from politicians, church leaders and others about the threats to marriage to prepare up for the month of prayer. You will also hear an exciting announcement about the future of the National Day and 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting because of your valuable input through our survey.
