Media release – For immediate release

On Australia Day January 26 at 10.30am, an expected crowd of 1000 Christians from different churches, denominations, ethnicities, and states will gather at Springvale Town Hall, 397 Springvale Rd Springvale in Melbourne to pray for God’s protection over Australia during this bushfire season.

Catch the Fire Ministries President, Pastor Daniel Nalliah who will also be conferred with an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Saint Thomas Christian College in Jacksonville, Florida USA for his work to secure freedom of speech in Australia and his ongoing stand for Christian values, said he had been alerted to the atheists protests by the venue planners, but would not allow the atheists to hijack the prayers or detract from the purpose of praying for Australia.

The special guest speaker Reverend Dr Zamekio Jackson who oversees the U.S. Christian College, as well as more than 300 churches across the U.S., and who has personally witnessed many supernatural miracles following prayer, will be travelling with his prayer team from America to deliver a special message to Australians.

“We’re expecting extraordinary things in the Spirit of God to happen on Australia Day. The City of Greater Dandenong Council who operates the Springvale Town Hall have informed us that atheists have been in contact with them to notify them of proposed protests, but also to let us know that they will call the police if the protests get out of hand. We Christians will not be distracted by the atheists. We’re there to pray for the nation of Australia and if the atheists’ intention is to hijack the event, it’s not going to happen. We love the atheists because Jesus, who is our prime example, loves the atheists. They and anyone for that matter is most welcome to enter the town hall and hear about God’s supernatural miracles around the world in answer to the prayers of His people,” Pastor Nalliah said.

“This national prayer day for Australia is a major opportunity for reconciliation and unity amongst Christians from different ethnicities, churches, and denominations, including Anglicans, Catholics, Presbyterians, other Protestants, Pentecostals, Charismatics, Evangelicals, and the Salvation Army to come together to corporately pray for our nation’s Government, Armed Forces, Emergency Services, Australia’s Physical and Spiritual Healing. On top of the prayer agenda there will be a great focus regarding the bushfire season, that there will be much rain and the impact of the bushfires will be minimum.

“Please bring Australian flags with you as it is Australia Day. As Australians we also want to remember the people impacted by the devastating Haiti earthquake and encourage all to support Haitians as they can.” “The Bible verse 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 is what we’re standing on, asking the Most High God to honour His Word to come and heal our land both physically and spiritually,” Pastor Nalliah said.

    Hello Jason,

    Just wondered if you guys are aware of the 2010 Global Atheist Convention that is being held in Melbourne on 12-14 March. Titled “the Rise of Atheism” it is being billed as the “biggest ever atheist event in Australia’s history”. The more than 20 presenters include some of the ‘cream’ of the world’s most prominent and vocal atheists. This information came from the Jan-Mar. newsletter of Creation Ministries, who tried to challenge the convention organizers to a public creation-evolution debate but were turned down.

    This must surely be a huge matter for urgent prayer. We do not want such things taking place in our city! May I suggest that the Australia Day prayer rally would be a perfect time for the people of God to make a stand against all declarations of unbelief that will attempt to be made and against the principalities and powers involved, and to make some faith-filled declarations of our own over our city.

    Blessings,

    Dianne

    Hi Jason

    In reference to Dianne’s comment above about the 2010 Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne on 12-14 March that is exciting news, it shows that Satan is trying his hardest to take control. I could put it this way he is hanging on by his fingertips. The exciting news is there is no power greater than the Name of Jesus Christ. As Christians believe and stand on the Name of Jesus Christ every situation that was planned for evil, God Almighty will use it for His good.

    Can you imagation the Glory of God coming down upon that convention and it turn out to be reported as how the 2010 Global Atheist Convention “the Rise of Atheism” the “biggest ever atheist event in Australia’s history” became the start of one of the greatest Global Revival’s of today’s history.Wouldn’t it be great if every Christian could embrace a vision like that, to simply just believe it and stand on it in the Name of Jesus. Oh how this would make a way for our Mighty God to pour out the fullness of His glory upon the earth.

    How exciting are these times

    Praise God

    Bless You

    Annette
