Flag of IsraelPastor Daniel and his wife leading the CTFM tour in IsraelDear family and friends in Christ,

All glory and honor to the King of kings and the Lord of lords as our mission to Israel which was a great success!

I really do not know where to start. Possibly, there is not enough words to explain all that happened. I cannot write it all at once, but will try to send it across as part 1, 2, 3, etc.

On the 27th May, arouClnd 50 of us from Catch The Fire Ministries boarded the Malaysian Airlines plane in Melbourne. From the time we boarded the aircraft, we knew God was with us and something exciting was going to happen.

As the plane began moving down the runway, we were all very surprised when the pilot said, “Welcome to all at Catch The Fire Ministries. May you all have a great and safe pilgrimage to the Holy Land.” We were so happy and amazed to receive this welcome aboard Malaysian Airlines.

As we were high up in the sky over Australia, all the generals of prayer were ready to fire their weapons of the Holy Spirit (praying in tongues) at 4pm the planned time to unite heaven and earth in prayer. I had told the cabin crew that we were going to pray and suddenly there appeared on all the television screens behind every single seat throughout the whole aircraft the words, “Catch The Fire Ministries please pray for Australia – Ps Daniel.” We could not believe it and we all stormed heaven in prayer against the principalities and powers of darkness in high places. It was absolutely amazing.

Then we were on transit in Sri Lanka for one day and while at dinner at the hotel, we suddenly heard the music band playing Christian songs and found out that the band leader was born again.

So after dinner we ended up on our knees worshipping the Lord right in the middle of the restaurant of the hotel. The presence of the Lord fell in the place as almost all the waiters and some of the management gave their lives to Jesus. Many of them wanted us to pray for them.

Then we boarded the Jordanian airlines flight. I made friends with the chief steward whose name was OSAMA. While we were right over the Middle East the Lord spoke to me and said, “Get up and pray.”

So I went to Osama and asked him whether we could pray over the Middle East. I was surprised as he said, “You are most welcome.”

All 60 of us (more joined our team in Sri Lanka) got up in the airplane and started singing ‘HE IS LORD’, then stretched our hands over the Middle East and prayed in tongues and then in English with the aircraft full with passengers. Everyone was surprised. All glory to God as the presence of the Lord fell in the aircraft and many passengers wanted to know about Jesus. A number of them gave their lives to Jesus.

I was stopped at many seats as passengers asked me and others in from the team to pray for them. One lady wanted prayer for back problems, so along with another lady from my team ,I took this lady to the back of the aircraft and prayed for her.

All the stewardesses were watching this and wanted to know what I was doing, so I shared Jesus with them. Immediately one of them accepted Jesus and wanted me to lay hands and pray for her in front of all her cabin crew.

Many on the team witnessed to many people and led many to Jesus on the airplane. I was about to give an altar call on the plane, but unfortunately it was time to land.

How amazing it was for 60 prayer warriors from Australia to pray over the Middle East in an Arab airlines and to receive permission from the chief steward named Osama. God definitely has a sense of humour. All glory to God.

Shall share part 2 with you in the next few days.

Your brother in Christ,

Pr Daniel Nalliah

    All praise To God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. May the Middle East and all the world praise and worship Him.

    Thankyou to CTFM for the prayers regarding our land and Mt Gambier. A group of us are going to go around The Crater Lakes and claim the high places for our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, we are going to copy what you did at Mt Ainslee.

    Dear Ps Danny, so glad to hear of what the LORD is doing. Here in Melb, I went to a meeting at Rooks Rd Vermont. Well the teaching was incorrect. I have to say there was a lot of uneasiness in the place. Crowded. The man centred on the signs rather than Jesus. “The body” of Christ is very tired, restless. It Needs Discernment across ALL denominations (people from various churches + there) re wrong teaching.

    Keep up the good work

    Love Andrea.

    Dear Jason,

    Thanks for this. We have been receiving a lot of information on what is happening in Israel. It is amazing to think that a lot of Gazans are better off than a lot of other people who are starting in this world.

    Wishing you every blessing.

    Hi Pastor Daniel,

    How can I sum up in one paragragh such an awesome time in the Holy Land.

    What comes to mind are the words to the song “These are the days of Elijah DECLARING THE WORD OF THE LORD, and that’s what happened everywhere declaring, decreeing prophesing, praying, singing touching lives. I don’t think the prince of the power of the air was too happy about the “rag tag army from Oz (to quote Dr. Murray) invading his air space.

    Love and Blessings to you all,

    Pastor Danny has asked us to submit a couple of sentences on our trip:

    Having just returned from the Catch The Fire Israel Trip, I just want to praise God for the awesome privilege and opportunity to be a part of this wonderful experience. God’s favour was upon Pastor Danny and the whole team, as our Lord moved mountains before us everywhere we went. I am from Griffith NSW and am amazed how God bound us together in love, and united us in fervent prayer and intercession for Israel, Australia and the Nations. I feel like a part of a wonderful new family and know
    that every life will be changed as a result of this trip.

    Shalom & Blessings to all

    Vision whilst praying

    I had a sense of 4 winds 4 corners of a sheet was laid out on a table and this man dressed in a cloak of many colours drew a wiggly line like he was drawing a line around Israel, and Alice and another lady, were all in agreement with the interpretation they had a sense that it was The Lord saying He’s drawing the line and no further will He let the enemy past, enough is enough.

    I also had a vision of like someone had lit the fuse and it was golden bright light going up and down the mountains, I was told that it was the West Bank in Israel by one of the ladies at our prayer meetings. God has drawn the fire line across the West Bank and all of Israel. We were praying on 5/6/2010 Saturday morning between 9.45 to 11.30am.


  16. 16 Audrey & Maurice

    Good morning Ps Daniel,

    I was blessed with the anointing when I started reading your articles about your recent trip to Israel. I could feel tears in my heart because of the joy of the Lord what He is doing in your life. Praise His Holy name!!! The signs and miracles which you all experienced is so wonderful. You know what it’s all about when we live totally obedient to His will and His word and 100% believing all His promises we can do all things possible in Jesus name. Brethren for Jesus because of His Mercy you are all doing great task
    for His Kingdom. God continues to use you mightily as His holy dedicated vessels. I will team up with you all in my prayer and will also be mentioning to my country folks about your team and what our Almighty God is doing in your ministries.

    In Jesus name


  21. 21 Kris

    Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and give Him all the glory for the amazing things He did. Praise the Lord also for the boldness of this prayer team, for their unity and witness in sharing the goodness and love of our Lord Jesus Christ in these remarkable circumstances.

    Pray also for the Holy Spirit to do a mighty work in the lives of all those who received Jesus and/or His healing during those times of visitation, and also that the Lord would bring across the paths of each one believers in Christ who will disciple them, giving God all the glory.

    With love in Christ Jesus,


  22. 22 Trevor

    Be encouraged and step out in faith believing for the glory of heaven to fall and engulf us.

    I am not sure if you will remember me but I remember you. Last year in 2009 June or July I sent you message after I saw your website and from that day I am getting messages from you 2-3 times a week. I am so happy to read them and I am blessed to know your website, but my problem was that I had fear, very much fear and demonic attacks, real demon forces. I think you prayed for me that time and we start talking then after some time for 2 or 3 months then we lost contact they locked me at mental hospital for 1 month because I was like drunk.

    Before they did this I met Pastor Bill here in Sydney he is not far from my house. We prayed together after they released me from hospital and I started crying out to Jesus. I was crying to God before that too but this time I continued on praying then Jesus healed me in an amazing amazing way and Jesus spoke to me please watch my testimony on youtube


    I deleted the video 2 weeks ago many people had watched me about 600 people then I uploaded them again 2 days ago. Pastor Bill’s video is there too. Now I see Pastor Bill often and I go visit his house and he also come to visit me.

    I am healed! I work full time as a Security Guard at the club near my house I am so happy with Jesus. It is not easy to follow Jesus but it is him who saves us!

    Jesus bless you
