For the sixth year in a row, Australia called the nations of the world to join with them to pray and fast for four days for the United States, from April 30–May 3, 2018.
Commissioner James Condon, a member of the National Day of Prayer and Fasting team, says, “God has done remarkable things in America since we began to pray and fast, but God can do greater things yet! We in Australia believe it is our turn to stand in the gap for the nation of America and pray for revival and transformation for the USA through prayer and fasting according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. Whilst America has a new administration, the need for a new National Awakening has never been more apparent.”
Commissioner Condon from the Salvation Army continues, “We in Australia are grateful for the protection that America gave Australia and the nations of the free world during World War II. The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought by the USA in 1942, was the turning point in the Second World War for Australia. America continues to be a blessing to the world. Even to this day the USA is the largest contributor of foreign aid among all the countries of the world. Thank God for America!”
Warwick Marsh, also from Australia’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting team, says, “We are thankful for America’s strong Christian heritage, but this will not save America. Only the blood of Christ can. America and Australia need revival and reformation.”
