For the ninth consecutive year, Australia is calling the nations of the world to join in prayer and fasting for the United States, to coincide with the U.S. National Day of Prayer.
Commissioner James Condon, chairman of Australia’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting team, says, “We have been praying and fasting on an annual basis since 2013 for the revival and transformation for USA. We in Australia believe it is our turn to stand in the gap for the nation of America.”
Andrew Scarborough, a member of the Australian team, says, “President Abraham Lincoln’s humble call to prayer in 1863 resonates with us today. Both America and Australia need to come back to God in repentance and humility.”
Australia hosted its own National Day of Prayer and Fasting on February 27, which was their ten-year celebration. Indigenous Christian leaders helped lead the day. Their central prayer theme remains the same—that Australia will experience revival and transformation and millions will come to Christ.
