Candlelight vigil for the 88 Aussies and the others who were tragically killed in Bali

We still enjoy our holidays, but 88 Aussies never came back from their holiday. Would you please take one hour to join us from 7-8pm tonight Friday 12th October at the Victorian State Parliament steps at the corner of Spring St and Bourke St to pray for the families of those who were killed in Bali 10 years ago? This is the best we can do to stand with our fellow Aussies. 

88 candles will be lit to remember our 88 fellow Aussies who died in Bali. As we remember and commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 88 innocent Aussies and the others who were tragically killed in Bali, we call on all peace loving Aussies to assemble at the steps of the Victoria State Parliament at the corner of Spring St & Bourke St on Friday 12th October from 7-8pm to unite to remember the families of the victims in prayer.

This 1 hour candlelight prayer vigil will also offer prayers on behalf of the families of our fallen diggers.

Rev Dr. Daniel Nalliah, President of Catch the Fire Ministries, stated, “We’re so saddened as we reflect on the tragedy that happened 10 years ago, that 88 of our nation’s sons and daughters were enjoying life on a holiday, but never returned home alive. Personally, I lost my brother 21 years ago and I remember him every year on his birthday. I can only imagine the pain, sadness and loss of the families of those killed in Bali and of our Diggers, that they must be going through at this time. I feel the least we can do is to stand with the families of these victims and say to them, ‘We love you and are praying for you. If you would like any help, we’re willing to help you at any time. May God bless Australia.”

There will also be prayers offered for peace and protection for Australia, in addition to the nations around the world.

    Jason,

    Hold my group up in prayer – I am taking 26 to Bali tomorrow and we are staying across the road from where the bombing took place in Jimbaran bay. Most of the group are children.

    Blessings,

    Thanks for this invitation, I can’t be with you in person but I can be with you in spirit and prayer. A bit far from QLD. My prayer is God is leading this vigil and His spirit will be felt by all who see you. We as a Nation need to be united as one people under God as we were once. God bless one and all.
