It is time for the Church of Australia to pray and to arise as one, with love.
“So, I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favour until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.
Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences – the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far reaching is his love! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding – this extravagant love pours into you; until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God.”
(Ephesians 3:14-19 The Passion Translation)
Awaken Church of Australia! It is a time in our nation; like no other.
The Church, Family, Marriage, Government, Education and Society generally, is under such threat in ways our grandparents would never have foreseen.
It is a time for us to pray and intercede for the church family to arise as one. For harmony, cooperation, collaboration, agreement, togetherness, solidarity, like mindedness and peace.
What a force we will be, what a difference we will make, standing together, as one!
And then there is the power of agreement. God’s word says that “if two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you” (Matthew 18:19 NLT).
Imagine the difference when the whole church walks and prays in agreement. Anything could happen!
Let us be all that our Father has called us to be, empowered by his love.
Father awaken us to your great love.
Your word says that love is the greatest thing in life.
We acknowledge the power of your love through all that Jesus died for, on the cross of Calvary.
Help us to keep you in first place, loving you with all our hearts and with all our souls and with all our minds.
And to love others deeply, warmly, respectfully, with tolerance and kindness.
Forgive us for all the times when we haven’t run after you. Forgive us for not treating others as we would like to be treated.
Help us mighty God, to echo your intense love wherever we are and in whatever we do.
We declare that as we love each other as you have loved us, our love will prove to Australia that we are your disciples.
You say in Your Word to “constantly love one another. This love means living in obedience to whatever you God, command us. For to walk in love toward another is the unifying commandment we’ve heard from the beginning” (2 John 5b-6 The Passion Translation).
We declare that your love in our lives will spill out to our communities and shift the atmosphere, releasing your life and light.
We call on your grace when we fail to be quick to forgive any who mistreat us. We declare this day that we choose to be obedient & choose to love, for love is the key.
Help us Father to be one: to look past the differences and maintain peace.
May your name be glorified through your church in this nation.
