About the Event

The team at the National Day of Prayer & Fasting, in consultation with many church leaders and prayer networks, including the National Council of Churches, is calling Australia to united prayer in the light of the current COVID-19 crisis.

We are drawn to pray together across the land, given the current level of need and distress.  Our theme is found in this beautiful liturgical prayer: “Lord have mercy — Jesus have mercy”.  Inspiration for this prayer is found in the story of the blind beggar in Luke 18:35 and his cry to Jesus for healing.

This simple prayer for mercy is found throughout the scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments.  “Our eyes look to the Lord our God till He shows us His mercy.” — Psalm 123:2  To facilitate a national prayer focus, the team at the National Day of Prayer & Fasting are providing the following prayer resources and opportunities.

  1. Every day from Monday 16 – Sunday 22 August 2021, a Daily Devotion will be sent out to those who register. Each Daily Devotion will include a prayer from a different Church leader.
  2. Every night from 8PM AEST, Monday 16 – Sunday 22 August 2021, a nightly Prayer Call will take place with input from a different church leader each night.
  3. On Sunday 22 August 2021 from 9AM – 9PM, the National Day of Prayer & Fasting team will host a Zoom Prayer call featuring Church leaders and Indigenous Christian Leaders. Come for a short while or come for a long while. Let us join in prayer for our nation.
