The Australia Day National Prayer Gathering at the Scots Church in Melbourne, organised by Catch The Fire Ministries and supported by many churches, and ministries, was a great success for the unity of the Body of Christ and the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Around 700 Aussie Christians, along with 35 pastors and many other Christian ministers, filled the church in the city of Melbourne. Many carrying their Australian flags were so excited to see so many people of God lift up their hands to worship Jesus as King of kings and LORD of lords! There were people from every single state from across Australia present at the united prayer meeting for our nation’s transformation.
The interdenominational multi-ethnic prayer service started with the the minister from the Scots Church welcoming the people, and a great time of worship led by the CTFM worship team. Then the Uniting Church Minister prayed for Government & Leaders, followed by the AOG Pastor who prayed for protection from bush fires and thanked God for the rain.
As passionate Aussie Christians kept pouring into the auditorium, the place was full of excitement and the mighty presence of God filled the house. More worship was lifted up to heaven as people started interceding and praying for Australia’s revival, awakening, reformation and transformation.
Then the Baptist Minister led prayer for the nation and for revival in Australia. We also had prayer for the business and marketplace led by Brother Peter. Then Pas Daniel spoke on forgiveness and read a message from Pas Mark Conner of City Life Church. At this point people gathered together and spent time searching their hearts and repented before the Lord from any anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, offence, etc.

Then the Indigenous elder Aunty Margorie from Darwin led in prayer and a song of worship about welcoming the Holy Spirit from the highest mountains to the lowest valleys throughout our nation and hearts. Following this the Catholic priest led the congregation in the Lord’s prayer.
The crowd continued to worship the Lord as the CTFM worship team continued to lift up high praise and worship as they led everyone in the beautiful song ‘Great South Land of the Holy Spirit’! There were shouts of joy as people lifted the Australian flags and continued praising God for our nation!
Then Evangelist Jason from CTFM prayed for a Holy Spirit revolution of salvation, deliverance, healing, restoration and radical transformation amongst the youth, young adults and children of our nation.
Also at the meeting was a beautiful team of prophetic dancers from an Indonesian church in Sydney. They all came all the way from Sydney to minister in dance with banners, tambourines etc. They were just so amazing.
Then the guest speaker Rev Dr Robert Carner, the Moderator General of the Presbyterian Church, challenged the people with the Word of God as many were greatly impacted to Rise Up Australia for Jesus!
Then Pr Daniel called out for all Pastors present and their spouses to come to the front of the auditorium. Everyone in the congregation started clapping and rejoicing as 35 Pastors and many of their spouses came forward.
Then Pr Daniel and his wife Maryse prayed for all the Pastors and their families at the meeting and all throughout Australia.
Following this a Pastor from the CRC churches closed the service in prayer and then the congregation were up on their feet with their Australian flags flying high and singing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ our national anthem.
Pr Daniel stated, “What an amazing morning it was. I was so thrilled to see the body of Christ unite as one to worship and pray for our nation. We desperately need to unite as one body and cry out to God for a revolution of God’s love for a national reformation in Jesus name. I want to thank everyone who took the time to come on this wonderful Australia Day to pray for our nation.”
