Toowoomba FloodsDear family & friends in Christ,

I hope you received my last email on Saturday regarding the floods in QLD, calling on the church to repent and pray for our nation.  I hope many of you are standing in the gap in prayer, repentance and  fasting.
 
As per the warning we received from the Lord at the all night prayer meeting last Friday, we were told that much more disaster was yet to come, but if we as the church would stand in the gap for our nation that we could avert the disaster.
 
No one ever expected an inland tsunami in Toowoomba as described by the media this morning!   I watched the news and was shocked to see land, houses, cars and people getting just simply swept away. What  got my attention was that the insurance companies were calling it an “Act of God” as categorised in their policy.
 
As the flooding continues in QLD, the nation is faced with another major crisis with raging fires in WA. There are 2 things we can do, we can simply say, ‘I am not affected, so who cares. This is just another natural disaster’, and then turn and go to sleep.  Or we could get on our knees and cry out to the Lord to protect our nation.  Just put yourself in the place of those who are victims of the flooding or fires. These are our fellow Aussies who are in great trouble right now.
 
We are calling on all Christians in Victoria to gather at the parliament steps in Melbourne on Wednesday the 12th of January 2011 (tomorrow) from 12 to 1pm to pray for the people of QLD and stand in the gap for our nation in this hour of crisis.   We need to ask God to forgive us and save our land from any further disaster.

As in 2 Chronicles 7:14. ‘ If my people, who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and turn away from their wicked ways and seek my face, I will hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land.’

There will be an opportunity to donate money to the flood victims at this meeting, which will be given to the Channel 9 Appeal to help the flood victims. We are also expecting some state government officials to be at the meeting.

If you cannot make it to the prayer meeting at the parliament steps in Melbourne tomorrow, can you please gather with a few Christians wherever you are and stand in the gap and pray at the same time. Wherever possible in your respective state, please go and stand in front of your parliament building and pray.
 
Please pass this message on to everyone you know by email or text ASAP. As it is short notice.
 
Blessings/ Pr Daniel

    G’day Danny, Jason and Team

    I’ll be at the Cornerstone lunch tomorrow and we’re a bit short on staff so I can’t make it to the prayer meeting in Melbourne. I’ll announce it before lunch and pray for our nation as you suggest.

    MARANATHA!

    Dear Brother, can I suggest that you look into donating to The Salvation Army appeal instead of Channel nine as no administration fee is taken out of the donations and it will make its way to the people in need.

    We in WA will also be praying.
    With much Gratitude,

    Andrew

    Thank you for your leadership. Ps.Daniel. I’ve emailed AOG in Brisbane suggesting that they start 24/hr prayer. We all at risk, even up here in the Goulburn VAlley Echuca is only 1/2 hr away. The head waters of the Darling River start in Darling Downs which encompasses Toowoomba. The massive amount of water will eventually flow into the Murray River. Towns on the Murray could be at risk of severe flooding… BRisbane right now is in a dangerous situation. Will the walls of the dam cope with so much water. Iam in prayer right now. Really frightening; God’s judgement on our nation of Australia.The Australian reports of plagues in NSW, you name it , they’ve got it. Canberra next with rabbit plagues. Appeals for money are great, but the need right now is for the church to get off it’s collective backside, no more programmes as usual, promoting conferences and overseas speakers. All the world is watching and wondering why is Australia, the so called’ Lucky country experiencing disasters of such a magnitude

    Dear Ps Daniel, Boort meeting at 12 noon tomorrow to join with you in repentance and praying for the nation. This area has also had almost continual rain since 12 noon on Sunday, need to pray and believe for the harvest still standing in paddocks. God said He would set the boundaries, we certainly need it now right across Australia and in many situations.
    Bless you all at CTFM. Heather & Brian

  5. 5 Peter

    Dear Pastor Daniel,

    I couldn”t agree more than that as believers we are held accountable by God for what we have been commanded to do in this mission field to fill the gap on earth. We know clearly from what is written in the Bible that every time God pours out His wrath upon the earth is due to disobedience against His will. The question is what would we as Christ’s churches & Christians actively do in our daily worship to God that could prevent God’s wrath from happening, especially those who has abilities to do more for others? Life pressures have caused many of our Christian brothers & sisters worrying only about their own situations. In a way, it seems we are still Christians but by our deeds we are disobeying His actual commandments (Titus 1:16).

    Therefore, please allow me to confirm what you have received from our Lord that God is calling His churches & all believers to repent and truly fulfiling His Great commission rightly, not only up to verse 19 but also to complete verse 20, “Teaching believers to obey EVERYTHING that He has commanded us to do. Only then, the Lord will be with us till the very end of the age”. We must prepare God’s people facing what is going to happen in this end-time just as what is now happening in QLD and many other places surround the world, not only for themselves but as well for our fellow brothers & sisters in needs who are created in God’s images. I believe the fathering job is the biblical way to personalise Jesus Christ in the heart of everyone and mega churches should increase their focus much more to the struggles of small churches so that we can be truly glorify God’s name in real unity intended by God. Then, when we pray together as one godly Family-Kingdom of God’s priests, our !
    crying petitions will be heard from Heaven as in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    We will certainly join the prayer in Melbourne tomorrow from Sydney. May the Lord accept our repentance and petitions on behalf of our brothers & sisters and ourselves for the glory of His own great name, in Jesus Christ…amen!

    His servant,
    Peter

    Dear brother Danny,

    Thank you and your ministry for prayers.
    Can you say that God has sense of humour? I know a Christian lady that moved recently to higher ground in Toowoomba because she wanted to escape tsunami on the Gold Coast and they got tsunami on the mountain and we are safe here. It shows us that no one can hide from God.
    Strange things are happening, that’s why we must walk closer with YHWH.

    Shalom,

    Jerry

    Hi all,

    Queensland has a good tropical weather and environment however to be honest i have always has this feeling of lostness around the place. The suburb ive lived in is next to k rudd’s place. I live in Victoria for about a month now. I just hope for these guys to be open to our creator.

    May God’s will be done.

    Dear Danny

    Please read he following letters. I have a business in Withcott near a creek in one of the hardest hit areas of the flood.
    I have read the ctfm letter today. Ian is the manager of that Business, he is a man of God & powerful in the Spirit .
    Danny I am with you brother in the Spirit of Jesus & through prayer.
    Bless you in His Name.
    Paul

    Dear Paul

    My heart is with you all the way. I agree with you on every point. This is the beginning of a Revival for our country. 1000,s are about to enter the Kingdom of Jesus. My heart bleeds for the people as dose the heart of Jesus. I am standing poised to preach the gospel of Kingdom of Jesus to this nation. In prayer today I was overcome by Gods Spirit, crying & wailing for this nation. Yesterday after speaking with Ian as a Metre of water was banked against the outside of the building he was in fear, I told him to get on the roof. After finshing the call the Spirit of God came on me and filled me with such anger against the powers of Darkeness that I was able to comand with authority in Jesus Name for the waters to back away. By the Grace of God Ians life was saved yesterday. Building upstream from our business were destroyed ours is still standing. The water did not rise any further at the point of that prayer. Praise to Jesus.

    Love Paul

    Dear brethren,
    Toowoomba is the home city of Revival Ministries Australia. We are in the midst of our January Training School and brethren have joined us from various parts of Australia. Others have not been able to come because of the flooding in various parts of Queensland. Yesterday our city experienced unprecedented flash flooding with up to eight meters of water coming as a wall of destruction into the Central Business district. The creek about 50 meters from SHILOH Centre swelled to be a river up to 8 meters deep and 60 meters wide. It overflowed all barriers and bridges. Water coursed down streets picking up cars. People were rescued out of cars caught in the water. In this terrible event which then effected surrounded towns and rural areas, people have lost their lives and many are missing. The torrential rain continued overnight and the flood waters will now threaten many suburbs of our capital city, Brisbane. Three brothers who are attending our school have lost their cars. Two were fully inundated and moved around the car park where they were; the other one was carried away and found jammed against a fence.
    The major city shopping areas were inundated with over a meter of water.

    The school is on hold today of course and our brethren are meeting in various homes around the city for prayer. They are meeting in places where they will not have to cross the creeks because the creeks can flash flood without any warning as we experienced yesterday. Relatives of our brethren were rescued out of the flood waters yesterday. A number of brethren are stranded in Toowoomba and cannot get home as the main highways to our city are cut.

    We want you to know we are OK and please don’t try to phone us as we need to keep our phones free to meet emergency needs locally.
    We believe this is a God event and we are interceding for our people, our State and our Nation to come to repentance. Australia is publically a very ungodly nation these days and our laws have been changed to be very anti-Christ. Both our State Premier and our National Prime Minister are women and both live in de-facto relationships. By their very live style they bring a curse on our nation.
    Meanwhile we believe that we are on the verge of the beginning of an awesome revival, which will catapult the true apostolic church into being positioned to receive and facilitate the revival that is coming as people turn to God in repentance.

    God bless you, please pray for us.
    Paul

    Prophesy fulfilled!!??

    Hi!
    Just thought I would share this with you – you can take it or leave it, but it is definitely something I haven’t forgotten over the years.
    If I was my mother I would probably be able to give you the date & time & the whole of the prophesy word for word.
    But, sorry, I can’t!
    But years ago, probably in the late 1970’s, early 80’s, Roger Theile (a prophet from the UK)
    was speaking at COC Mansfield.
    He had a prophesy about there being another flood which would be worse than we had ever seen, worse than the January 74 floods, & that it would be in the 5th month.
    Every time we have had a lot of rain & floods etc I have always thought of this prophesy & had a think of which month we were in & most times could dismiss as we were not in May!
    This time however, this prophesy has been on my mind more & more frequently, so much so, that I have really started to sit up & take notice. The thought even crossed my mind ‘no Lord, this isn’t going to go on till May is it?’
    Yesterday when I was thinking about it again, I remembered that the Jewish calendar doesn’t match ours. Guess what – the Jewish New Year begins in our September!! Which makes January the 5th month!!!!!!!
    I really feel for all those affected by these floods – lots of the shops I supply are under water.
    Many friends & customers have personally been affected.
    At the same time, I feel an excitement about this prophesy at long last coming to past, & waiting for what God is going to do in our land following this.
    I for one am praying that as this water has come & flooded so quickly, & so widespread,
    that it will be followed by a massive outpouring of God’s Spirit & power that even the media will have to acknowledge it!!
    God bless you! Love,
    Chris & Helen

    Dear Pastors & Ministers,
    Just a quick update that two more churches (see below) have responded to this call to prayer. Your quick response is greatly appreciated.
    Bless You
    James

    Dear Pastor & Minister,

    As the flood waters rage in Queensland, I believe we the church need to pray on behalf of those affected by the floods. As a result, I am suggesting a day of prayer and fasting for Wednesday the 12th, that is tomorrow.

    Could I encourage you to open your churches for both corporate and individual prayer either tomorrow or even at a later time this week. I realise this is a rather impromptu response, but I believe the rising flood waters are also a surprise to many.

    In addition, Pastor Alan Murray from the Penrith Valley Christian Businessman Group is opening the doors to their weekly prayer meeting from 7 to 10am tomorrow for all who wish to pray. The address is Penrith Presbyterian Church Hall, Doonmore Street Penrith (across from Penrith Public School).

    Your assistance in passing on this message either via email or otherwise and opening your doors for prayer would be greatly appreciated.

    Would you please indicate if you are able to open your church for prayer at one of the following times, please “reply all” so that everyone is aware of the times you are able to participate.

    7am-10am Penrith Valley Christian Business Group (Penrith Presbyterian Church Hall)
    10am-1pm Living Hope Christian Fellowship (C/ Trish Ellis 4 Banjo Cres, Emu Plains 0415217671)
    1pm-4pm
    4pm-7pm
    8.30- 10pm New Life Christian Church, 4/11 Stoddard Rd, Prospect 0466-272-350- Maree Nichols

    May God Bless You this New Year and show His mercy to the people of Queensland.

    Your Brother in Christ Jesus (Home from Sweden)

    I lived in Toowoomba for the past 9 month with my family, and being a Christian the doors opened for us to move 11 days ago.
    Many do not know that this City was the first place for the micro chip card to be tested and rolled out for all Driving Licenses now in Aus only months ago.

    It all goes hand in hand the whole lot.

    Dear Pastor;

    I wandered on your site this morning after seeing the flood then googling Australia/Israel to see on my own what negative relationships or comment were made lately by Australian politicians. I read the information on your webpage about recent political comments. There is selective judgment going on in America also. I will keep your land in my prayers. I do not know if you have ever heard of PerryStone of Voice of Evangelism Ministries here in America, but that is where I became aware of selective judgment, Here is his website to share http://www.voe.org/ The Media center has a wonderful opportunity to continue learning from home with podcasts to download.

    Kindest Regards,

    Dear Pastor Danny

    I’m a Toowoomba resident – a nurse at our local hospital – who went to On the Edge church especially to hear you speak there in 2009 and have been receiving your mail ever since. I really appreciate your call to prayer and fasting as I have already felt challenged to do so, but since the terrible floods of Toowoomba and wider Qld, it seems that God is giving me a firm direction and encouragement to commence – I can sense His vigorous nod!! So this day, 12th Jan, will be the day that I commence. If you have any further directions regarding methods of fasting, can you please send these too.

    Yesterday we were at home when after another usual wet morning (it has been raining for weeks here in Toowoomba), suddenly the velocity of the rain shifted into top-gear and the magnitude and power of the thunder and lightening which suddenly struck right overhead, made us aware that this was no ordinary storm. Then the rain just DUMPED onto Toowoomba – yes, truly an ‘Act of God’ and it was this unexpected and relentless volume of rain which overwhelmed our drainage systems and caused the flooding wall of water – which then dropped over the edge of the range and onto Withcott, Grantham & Helidon below, causing more devastation and loss of life.

    Personally I’m of the belief that we are going to see more and more of this sort of wild weather and extremes of ‘nature’ for quite some time yet. I also believe Christians are going to be expected (by the Lord) to be a pro-active intercessory part of the Tribulation and won’t be taking the easy road out with the Rapture beforehand. I now feel VERY strongly that this pre-Trib doctrine – which I was taught all my life and strongly adhered to until just recently – is FALSE and has lulled many Christians into a false sense of security and ‘smugness’. The attitude of ‘I’ll be safe – I won’t have to worry about the Trib and all those poor/wicked non-believing suckers who’ll be left behind’ seems to be the way it is with so many of us.

    The Rapture WILL happen but post-Tribulation and pre-Millennium – just as Jesus speaks of in Matthew 24:31). So I have a strong hunch that the prevailing weather patterns, extremes of weather, floods, earthquakes, tsunamies, tornadoes, bushfires etc, all all a part of God’s end-time activity as a prelude to the time of Tribulation. I also believe that there will be amazing Acts of God’s protection of His own and there will be the Joel-prophesied end-time revival that will run simultaneously to this terrible time.

    Yes, despite the increasing horror of these days, it will also be a time of great Holy Spirit power and glory as well as many wonderful supernatural provisions for the saints as they move together in unison in prayer and intercession for the world around them and for the salvation of the world. During this time a wonderful crop – a bumper-harvest to God’s glory – will grow to full-height and maturity; ready for the dividing of the wheat and tares – the ingathering of believers and the judgement of non-believers when Messiah (Christ the King) finallyreturns to earth.

    I have a real concern. I wonder if your organisation is a lone voice in Australia calling the church to repent and pray for our nation?The little church I go to, handed out envelopes to give money to flood victims to people in Emerald, (which was affected by the floods), but the connection simply wasn’t made between these ‘Acts of God’ and the need for our repentance… Compassion yes, but repentance??? I want so much to find fellowship with people who are also praying and fasting for our Country. I’m grieved that our lovely church has not made any sort of communication to us to meet together for an extraordinary time of prayer. It just seems like its business as usual. I’m also sad we haven’t pulled together as a church to roll up our sleeves in some measure to help the needy. I’m wondering when the ‘penny will drop’.

    Many thanks for your continued ministry. Blessings, Jo

    It’s 9:58pm and Mr Rudd is being interviewed on the telly, as it’s HIS area, HIS constituents that are caught up in the floods…
    I think this confirms what you said in one of your recent emails. Thought you’d like to know

  23. 23 Kate

    Daniel, Another thing:

    “There are 2 things we can do, we can simply say, ‘I am not affected, so who cares. This is just another natural disaster, and then turn and go to sleep. Or we could get on our knees and cry out to the Lord to protect our nation.”

    Get real.

    Three things, support our communities and help those who need it. Didn’t Jesus preach to do unto other as you would have them do unto you?

    If you’re drowning and wet and everything you know is covered in the devastation of water, trust me, I will be ‘down on my knees praying to God”…in thanks.

    Kate

  24. 24 Audrey & Maurice

    Dear Danny, Thanks for this. I was thinking how wonderful it would be if one of our politicians called our nation to prayer and ask the nation to act in accordance with the Word of God. What are our Christian politician up to? We need to pray for them that they will stand up and be counted. Love and prayers. Audrey & Maurice.

    Thankyou for your email, we are located in Bracken Ridge Brisbane a suburb away from Strathpine which has been order to vacuate in the low line areas, I praise God for his safety net for his people and although i am right in the midst of it all I keep applying the blood of Jesus over our street and suburb and all our family and friends. But you are right repentance and prayer is definately the first step, i was only thinking, image when the rapture hits our world will be here to prayer for others hopefully not I want to be taken up, but you know we who proclaim Christ in our life need to be the evidence of Gods favour over our lives when diasters like this hit and also use this opportunity as a great time of witnessing. My heart goes out all who have suffered great losses including Perth and overseas, thankyou for your encouragement, prayers and this definately is a time of being humbled, repentant and grateful for Gods mercy.

  29. 29 Simeon

    Hello,

    I was recently reading some of the material on your website, and I noticed, among other things, that you engage in intercessory prayer on behalf of the people of Australia (of which I am one). Unfortunately, I feel that it is somewhat inappropriate for you to be interceding on my behalf when asking for forgiveness, asking that people in the nation will repent, or anything of that nature. The requests you make in doing so are more or less directly opposed to my personal views and values, as are the goals of your organisation with respect to the political and legal spheres. As such, I would appreciate it if when you engaged in intercessory prayer on the behalf of the nation, you ensure that at least in your mind you do not intercede on behalf of me.

    Thanks,

    Simeon

    Dear Danny and Intercessors,

    There is an event as attached below for our nation happening in Canberra from 20th to 22-1-2011. The morning of the 22-1-2011 in the Great Hall, Parliament House.

    The response was as I expected, a small Gideon army attending of committed intercessory worshippers, yet powerful in their trust in the Lord and their unity of heart and purpose.

    Until Christians unite and stand together we will continue to see the disasters we are seeing in our nation and worse to come. I challenge you to send this out to your contacts in the strong name of our Mighty Yeshua Jesus and help us knock down the demonic strong holds in our nation and build a Holy alter of worship unto our God this January at this event.

    Many Christians I spoke to saw that their summer holidays were more important. The Great Hall holds 1,000 and we have around 100 committed mighty warriors registered as attending to date. The sad truth is that the satanists are more committed than the sleeping Christians. What a sad inditement on our nation that for such an event organised for our King only such a small remnant is coming. It reminds me of the banquet organised by the King in the New Testament and no one would come.

    Never the less we keep fighting as you do and we can at least say to the Lord , well we tried. There will also be a time of repentance and standing in the Gap. I am willing to throw the event open for no cost, for with such a small group we have almost covered the cost anyway. How serious are we really in our unity and love and concern for one another. We are referenced by a number of Pastors who will also be attending and yes we love Israel.

    King David would give nothing to the Lord without it cost him something. There are plenty of plane with cheap airfares.

    Blessings & shalom,

    Lorraine

    This is not a pretty picture – TOOWOOMBA – Flash Flood – narrow field of immense destruction and also ripping the lives of 8 declared deceased people from the community including a Pastor and His wife from a report just come in from a fellow Pastor.

    Please find below a copy of my letter to The Premier Anna Bligh whom we are exhorted to uphold in prayer.
    This is NOT a brag session on what I have done but is an encouragement to us all to undergird our Premier and have her conscious of the fact that as Christians we stand with her and encourage her to give attention to Psalm 2.
    If you have not already done so could I please encourage you to take a few short moments to communicate with her during this horrendous time we are all experiencing.
    Please feel free, even obligated to forward to as many Christians, as I am doing, and encourage them to do likewise.

    Thanking you
    CHRIST IS LIFE

    Dear Premier Bligh,
    Might I commence by saying that as Christians we have a duty and responsibility to uphold you in prayer especially during such tough times as these.
    “Mother Nature” as you have suggested has handed us an extremely catastrophic deal this time.
    However, might I suggest that “Mother Nature’s” hand has and continiues to be revealed in writings some 1000 years BC in Psalm 2.
    IF we continue to do things the same way we can expect the same results.
    As humbling as it might prove to be perhaps we could appeal to “Mother Nature” by highlighting 10th. of January each year as a day of Prayer and Repentance as the power of “Mother Nature” is crying out to be appeased and proves to be of a MUCH GREATER FORCE than any human can manage.
    THEREFORE, might I plead to your sensitivities to encourage us as QUEENSLANDERS to get on our knees and pray.

    Thanking you,

    Roy

    Hi I called earlier for prayer for Strathpine Queensland.

    We have been asked to evacuate.

    Please pray we have been here 8 years and have never had this happen.

  37. 37 Andrew

    Dear Brother, can I suggest that you look into donating to The Salvation Army appeal instead of Channel nine as no administration fee is taken out of the donations and it will make its way to the people in need.

    We in WA will also be praying.

    With much Gratitude,

    Andrew

    Dear Pastor Danny,

    Thank you so much for your regular updates at this terrible time in Queensland. You are doing wonderful work.

    May God continue to bless you,

    Hi Danny

    Thanks yet again for your thoughts and prayers on whats happening in our nation, its very concerning but always we know that our Great God is in control.

    Did you hear on the news last night that the Lord Mayor of Marrickville (an inner Syd. suburb) said that she is supporting a Palestian state. Seems she is following in Kevin Rudds footsteps. Some interviewed said “What has it got to do with us here in Australia” which I can understand from a secular viewpoint. Of course it is very significant for those of us who are concerned from an endtimes viewpoint.

    Just thought I pass this on in case you hadn’t heard.

    In His grip,

    Julie

    Just a little theological thought here Pastor Daniel . . .

    If the devastating weather in Qld is the hand of God ie., if God has either: a) allowed it or b) caused it, then what would His reason/purpose for doing that???

    As I understand it from scripture, these things are to bring people to repentance. I can see no other reason from scripture & see so many moments where he has allowed or caused calamity not in hatred, but that people may be stopped in their tracks & consider their need of God and a Saviour.

    So although the floods are dreadful – I shed tears watching the news this morning, and I have family in those floods. My beautiful brother, wife & 3 little children have just evacuated & their home is going under water as I write this. My beliefs however are that there is purpose & when we intercede for this to cease, we are simply putting off the inevitable.

  41. 41 William

    Let us pray for the well-being and safety of those with the ill-fortune of being in Queensland during this trying natural disaster. God will shield them. As the land floods with water, we can only hope that His blessing will be bestowed upon them all. I wish only the best for them all.
    The rains will fall, the water pouring from open firmament, and all will prostrate before the might of the Lord. They will be humbled before his undeniable and righteous judgment upon the land. Who are we, as fallible, myopic mortals, to question the fate for us given by our infallible, omniscient immortal King of Kings? To question His wisdom and His virtue by suggesting that His plan is anything but of utmost perfection is arrogant and borders on blasphemy.
    I give my best to the families of the victims during this trying time, and everyone in Queensland is in my prayers. This is a horrible ordeal and I pray everyday that no more will drown needlessly and the flood waters will finally stop. As with natural disasters past, I am sure that God will deliver on my prayers.

    God bless.

  42. 42 John

    Shalom/Hi All at Catch the Fire,

    I shall spend some time lobbying politicians today additionally to come out and also pray for the Nation publicly and call upon Almighty God to stop the rain and heal this land upon repentance of; abortion, homosexuality, the no-fault divorce attitude that is destroying our families, the apostasy in the church with the International Church Conference last year, the construction of desalination plants instead of dams to rely upon God’s provision, the persecution of Christians such as Pastor Daniel in our courts, the allowing of affirmations in our courts and government Ministers instead of swearing in on the Bible, the treatment of our indigenous people, the poor censorship that has permitted non-Christian television to saturate our youth with sex, satanic music and alcohol, not to forget allowing this country to drift from a blessed Christian nation to a multi-cultural collection of religions instead of a Christian nation that God has blessed us abundantly. People may come to this country but they must come as Christians and leave their country of origin beliefs behind!

    May God Bless all of my brothers and sisters abundantly as they go to the steps of the Victorian parliament and stand in the gap for ALL Australians,

    John

    Dear Ps. Danny,

    I’m the lady who rang you on Monday AM from Perth for prayers for my bones and marrow.

    Biopsy was done Tuesday AM and will have results on Friday. I’m trusting in God and thanking Jesus for healing me.
    I thank you for your time taken to pray for me.

    Will keep you informed.

    God Bless you.
    Lena. – I am also praying for our nation,

  45. 45 Vicki

    Please pray for this family of 7 (4 children under7) who emailed yesterday. They are the silent victims doing the best they can by themselves. They are going to have to sell the family farm as they have lost so much. Please pray for our friends today and many others like them.

    Thank you, Leonie

    Thank you for your prayers! God is so powerful and I am awed by what is happening across our state. We are fine. We have a levybank around our home and sheds. This was built many years ago when our older children were very young. We had a scare then with water lapping the house. So we watched the Moonie water flow around us last week. It has damaged the levy bank in an area where we built a wing on it to protect the one side from wash. This proved to be a good idea as we see what is left of that wing. Of course we were stranded but that doesnt really affect us as we are country people and know to keep enough food in our home to last months. That is a way of life for us. However, our farm has suffered and financially we have lost our wheat which is our main income. We have had to face some huge decisions as we have bank commitments that now we can’t meet. We have approached a friend who is interested in leasing our property. Hopefully we may be able to find someone who will be able to sharefarm the cultivation. That will save us from selling in the immediate future. Danny is busy trying to work our truck with carting. But it is also halted from carting due to flooding and a 5 tonne load limit on the Moonie Highway and Loudon Bridge near Dalby. So the roadtrain is parked also. We have some cattle we can sell but not enough to support a farm for twelve months. We were still trying to increase our cattle numbers from the drought several years ago. We were just starting to get our numbers up again. I am glued to the TV as we watch the water heading for Brisbane. It is so amazing! My brother had water go through his home on their farm near Millmerran and are facing it all again. Everybody has their story and we are thankful that we know God is in control and He is leading us. That is the hard part. Letting go and to let God. I have learnt how much I depend on material possessions and the security we feel in them. But when you are faced with losing them it is very humbling to confess that to God and to others. So as Job said, “Thou you slay me, yet will I trust You”. I pray for all those who are suffering today as the unknown faces them. 2011 will be a day to day trusting in the Lord for us. Which is what it should always be. But when you are put to the test you dont really realise how much you don’t. Thanks again. I was thrilled to hear from you. So I thought you might like to know more first hand. The love in the body of Christ is remarkable! God bless you and I hope you are out of flood waters today. Love Vicki

  46. 46 Marian & John from Awake in England

    In the early morning period John had impressed upon him “out of the mouth of babes and sucklings”. He checked Strong’s
    Concordance and found “Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength,/You have perfected praise” Psalm 8 v 2/Matthew 21 v 16. Here are the titles of two books with messages through a four year old and a six year old:-
    ‘Heaven is for real – a little boy’s astounding story of his trip to heaven and back’ by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

    ‘The boy who came back from heaven – a remarkable account of miracles, angels, and life beyond this world’ by Kevin & Alex Malarkey,

    “Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.” (Psalm 90 v 16-17).

    Then this morning from 10. 30 a.m. John told me a précis of what the Lord had been saying to him since 3.37 a.m. and what He showed him in the scriptures today.

    We have seen detailed news reports of what has been happening on the east coast of Australia, particularly in Queensland, in and around Rockhampton and most recently in Toowoomba and Brisbane; and are kept up-to-date through various prayer partners and prayer networks. We agree with Pastor Daniel Nalliah’s emails, copies attached, and we have a choice to make. John did not know of the most recent email until after he had shared with me what the Lord had laid on his heart and the urgency of writing to you.

    These are the scriptures that John shared with me, in no particular order, but we pray that the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and how they apply to the Australian situation in particular. Although they were given to prophets of old they apply today – “For I am the LORD, I do not change” (Malachi 3v6).

    All Psalm 90 NKJV heading -The Eternity of God and Man’s Frailty….v7 ‘For we have been consumed by Your anger and by Your wrath we are terrified….

    Deuteronomy – Blessing and Returning to God, Choice of Life or Death, The Law to be Read, Israel’s Rebellion, The Song of Moses, Moses’ Last Message, Moses’ Final Blessing, scriptures given to John at this time were chapter 29 v 24-27 ”All nations would say, “Why has the LORD done so to this land?”… Chapter 30 v 11-20, (please note cross reference from v 20 to John 11v25 and John 14v6). Chapter 31 v 6 “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Chapter 31 v 14-30. All chapter 32, but especially v 39 and 43-52. Moses’ Final Blessings are in chapter 33.

    Daniel 5. Daniel 7 v 14 “Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.” We have also been given v 18 “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.” Please also note verse 27.

    Towards the end of the morning part of Daniel 8 v 26 ‘stood out’ to me from the open page of my Bible, “And the vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true;”!

    Since 1999 John has been stressing ‘AWAKE’ in our prayer letters and messages and that Australia has a role in God’s plans to be a haven place. In his visits he’s observed churches closing, services being curtailed and we fear people are going their own ways – to barbies, sunshine and beaches, drinks, drugs, sport, electronics, etc everything but God! God’s wrath is upon Australia at the present time, particularly the eastern side. If there is no repentance then worse is to come – His wrath! We pray that they will hear, listen and repent. HEAR YE THE WORD OF THE LORD!

    Marian, prayer co-ordinator, and John, ‘AWAKE’ Ministry, London, England.

  47. 47 Pastor Margaret

    Dear Pastor’s,

    As you would be well aware Queensland (Northern Australia) has been hit by disastrous floods. The towns of Toowoomba, Dalby, Chinchilla, Gatton, Gympie, Rockhampton, Emerald are some of the worst affected. AND IT’S STILL RAINING! In Toowoomba a pastor and his wife have lost their lives.

    But this is a time for prayer and fasting for the safety of all Australian’s in those areas affected, and for the rain to STOP! We encourage you to get your people behind it and we ask you all to pray:

    2 Chronicles 7:14. ‘If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and turn away from their wicked ways and seek my face, I will hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land.’

    This is a time for us all to rise up and stand in the gap and PRAY for our country!

    Thank you

    Pastor Margaret

  49. 49 Paul and Lynda

    Dear Friends

    Last year my wife, Lynda & I purchased a business premises in Withcott in the Lockyer Valley below Toowoomba. I suppose that you have heard the news about the floods.

    Ian is our good friend oand Christian Brother is the Manager of Dishers Fencing for the Toowoomba area. Yesterday I was in Tamworth when Ian phoned me to say that it was raining very heavy, he was concerned about a leak in the roof of our shop. 15 minutes later he again rang me, he was alarmed to see a metre of water coming down the Warrego HWY. Within minutes water was banked against the outside of the building and up to the window seals he was in fear, I told him to get on the roof.

    After I got off the phone to Ian the Spirit of God fires me up me such anger against the powers of Darkness. In that I was able to command with authority in Jesus Name for the waters to back away. I believe that it was by the Grace of God that Ian’s life was saved and he had no need to get on the roof. Some other buildings upstream from our business were destroyed but ours is still standing. The water did not rise any further at the point of that prayer. ALL PRAISE TO JESUS.

    I pray that this that this calamity will lead Gods people and the leaders of our country to repentance. I pray that this will be the beginning of a Revival for our country. I pray that 1000,s of people would enter the Kingdom of Jesus and be born again of His Spirit. My heart bleeds for the people of our nation as dose the heart of Jesus. My heart’s desire is to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of Jesus to this nation, just give me crowd and let me preach, please.

    I am not sure how much damage has been done to my business, possibly $10,000-$20,000 excluding loss of income.

    Please join with me and many other believers in praying for the families that have lost loved ones and for families that have lost their homes.

    Lot of love from Paul & Lynda

    P.S Please pray for our financial situation, insurance will not cover flood loss.

  50. 50 Phillip

    Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually (1 Corinthians 12:27, New King James Version).

    Behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).

    Satan has no power over us. This means we do not have to journey through this life afraid of what the enemy can do to us! Jesus gave us authority to trample on serpents, scorpions, and over all of the power of the enemy, he then took it a step further and said nothing shall by any means hurt us. Let’s look at the word trample. The dictionary defines it this way: “to tread heavily, roughly, or carelessly over; to tread underfoot, to domineer harshly over; to crush, to put out or extinguish by trampling.” What is God saying to us? He is saying that He has given us power to domineer harshly over, crush, and extinguish the power of the enemy. Praise God!

    Jesus dominated the enemy at every turn. In Mark 5:8, He said to the devil, “Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.” Jesus spoke with authority; He didn’t say, “Satan, if you don’t mind, would you please come out of that man?” No, Jesus knew who He was and He knew He had authority over the enemy.

    Might I suggest that the best way that you can show what God is all about is to get out there and help the people? Praying is invaluable, however sitting back and telling people they are coming under the judgment of God and that you’re praying for them is more-likely-than-not going to turn people away, not bring them closer. God is Love. Love is a verb – a DOING word. Get out there and volunteer for the SES. Or at a local shelter. Take people into your homes. Take in animals. Help people move their belongings. THAT kind of media attention is far more valuable than what you’re currently getting….

  52. 52 Carlo & Paula

    Our dearly beloved brother in Christ, Pastor Daniel,

    Grace, mercy, peace, and love be multiplied unto you, unto your family (immediate and Catch the Fire), this new year in abundance drawing closer and closer to he LORD and deeper and deeper in love with Him in more intimacy like never before, going from grace to grace, from faith to faith, from victory to victory and from glory to glory in the glorious and wonderful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    We rejoice with you for the goodness of the LORD in what He is doing in and through your ministry. Praise the LORD!

    We heeded the call to pray and called on the Father for His grace and mercy, …!

    In my heart dearly beloved brother to remind you when there was a drought and the bush fires were raging in Victoria, you called people to repentance. And now also, may we encourage you not only to call people to pray concerning the floods, but also that the people would humble themselves also and repent and turn from their wicked ways and seek the LORD. For it is written:

    Job 37:6 For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength…

    Job 37:11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:

    Job 37:12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.

    Job 37:13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

    Let’s continue to call people to behold His goodness and also His severity (Rom. 11:22)! And that God’s judgments and correction is also His love to wake us up to righteousness that we should not perish!

    People like to hear prophecies of coming blessings and revival, and not of coming judgments and correction to stop and examine their ways and repent before a holy God!

    Pro 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.

    Pro 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

    Yes revival will come but not before the humbling:

    Pro 18:12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

    Job 5:10 Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

    Job 5:11 To set up on high those that be low (humble); that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

    We continue to uphold you in our daily prayers before the throne of grace in His love. And really appreciate it if you’d have us also in your prayers.

    The LORD bless you and keep you and your family and Catch the Fire Ministries. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

    With all our love in Christ,

    His Carlo & Paula.

  53. 53 Colin and Ngaire

    Hi Brother Daniel,What you say about repenting , was a distinct sense in our spirits more than a week ago. It seemed like a judgement ,requiring repentance. We asked the Lord to show us what it was all about,especially the enormity of it all. Now you bring the confirmation.Praise the Lord. Blessings

  54. 54 Ps. Peter

    Pastor Danny

    As I prayed last night I had a vision and a word..I saw Australia from above and saw very dark clouds starting to roll over from land from the West side..The words I received were..”Dark clouds of war are beginning to gather” the clouds were very very dark

    And they were like a thick curtain being so dark.

    I thought I would pass it on to you and see what you think about it.

    From

    Ps. Peter

  55. 55 Frank

    Peter, It’s all fine to pray to turn back the wrath of G-d.
    But why was there the wrath in the first place? Surely
    you don’t expect the wrath to subside if people continue
    to do the same transgressions?

    So why do you think this happened?
    The hint is obvious. It’s centered around
    the area where the flood was wrought.
