Australia Day United Prayer Event 2009

Come help celebrate this significant occasion! We are expecting 2,000 Christians to gather at this strategic time and place to uphold our nation in  prayer.

The City will be abuzz with Australia Day activity and we will be central and most significantly positioned as we pray for our nation of Australia and worship in unity!

When:      Monday 26th January, 2009

Where:     Melbourne Town Hall, Corner of Swanston St & Collins St, Melbourne

Time:     10:00am – to approx. 1:00pm (doors open from 8.30am)

 We would encourage you to consider coming as early as possible as the City of Greater Melbourne has many activities happening from early morning. Please note doors will be open for you from 8.30am onwards. Catch The Fire merchandise (including some small Australian flags) will be available prior to the commentment of the event, and an interesting powerpoint presentation will be shown for those arriving earlier. Please bring your own refreshment of water. A love offering will be taken on the day to help derfray costs. May we encourage you to give generously toward this?

Entry will be by the Collins Street doors on the day, not the main entrance in Swanston Street, due to streets close-by being closed off to through traffic for street activities and the flag raising event at 10am. If driving you will need to park higher up in the City and walk to Collins Street.

We have been advised the following areas will be blocked off from all traffic until 11.30am: Collins St between Russell St & Elizabeth St;  Swanston St between La Trobe and Flinders St

Please pray for the City & activities that will be happening during the day, as you walk. You will need to allow suffient planning time in your journey for this walk. 

May we encourage you to take public transport where possible. You may cross at the traffic lights marked for pedistrians, and make your way on foot to the entry point from Collins Street. Please refer to Public Transport Information on the right hand side of the website.

    Danny,

    I believe it is time to awake the Australian Church to the awesome Christian Heritage they were given by their great-great-grandparents through the Australian Constitution.
    That generation of Aussies insisted that a key phrase was added to the Australian Constitution which would shape this nation.

    The phase is: “humbly relying on the Blessing of Almighty God”

    The Australian nation voted to bow its knee to only one deity – Almighty God.The Australian people admitted that Australia is not built on politics, money, power, military might or good luck – but on “the Blessing of Almighty God”. And NOTHING HAS CHANGED. That is still our Constitutional, Legal Reality!

    Before anyone tries to take that away from us, every Australian Christian should commit every day to be “humbly relying on the Blessing of Almighty God”.
    If the Christians won’t do it, then we have no power to stop people taking that Constitution away from us and replacing it with a secular one!

    I challenge the Australian Church to make 2009 the Year of “HUMBLY RELYING ON THE BLESSING OF ALMIGHTY GOD”!
    If you resonate with this, then help me get the word out to the Australian Church.

    Thanks, Chris

    Hi Catch the Fire

    I will be praying for you in my absence – I wish I could be there with you on the day.

    May God work through you and the Churches to unite, stand up for Jesus and reform the misdirection of Government decisions.

    I am praying for miracles – God has the power – we just need to humble ourselves and pray.

    Then unite, join forces, stand firm and bring a deluge of responses to the Government and the people who are asleep.

    God Bless the team at Catch the Fire Ministries, the Salt Shakers and all the Churches and Ministries attending.

    Stephen Hatton
