Prayer for Rain – Register for Daily Devotionals

Join together with Christian leaders and churches of all denominations from all over Australia as we Pray and Fast for Australia from the 1 – 31 October 2019. Every state in Australia has encountered some level of drought over the last several years. Some areas of Northern NSW and Southern Queensland as well as WA, SA and NT are equal to the driest on record.

Some towns are about to run out of water, and some towns have run out of water. Elders Long Range Forecast shows little indication of significant rain over the next 28 days. The Bureau of Meteorology are forecasting a hot dry spring and summer.

This period of unified interdenominational Prayer and Fasting has been inspired by the Catholic Church’s call for Prayer and Fasting for Marriage & Family for the month of October every year for the last three years.

We believe we have an opportunity to build on this record of unified prayer and increase the level of prayer across Australia.

The team at the Canberra Declaration will coordinate daily digital devotions from National Church leaders including Aboriginal Christian leaders.

We invite you to Join the Daily Zoom Video 1-hour National Prayer Call every night:

DATES: 1 – 31 October

TIME: 8PM AEST Time (NSW time)


ZOOM MEETING ID: 776881184


We would love to see people of faith in the cities unite and actually go to the drought-affected areas to pray in situ and render practical assistance in a coordinated effort to “Bless the Bush”. The Canberra Declaration is partnering with Dave Jackson from Western Air Care Ministries to Bless the Bush.

Australia has a desperate need for RAIN, but we have an even more desperate need for God. We pray that as we get down on our knees to pray for RAIN in October that God will give us the grace of REPENTANCE and the RENEWAL of our love for our Father in Heaven. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

  1. Pray for Repentance – Father, give us the grace to repent as a nation in Jesus’ Name: “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3:19
  2. Pray for Renewal – Lord, we pray for renewal in our hearts, in the church, in the community and in the nation: “And now I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken… The Lord is long-suffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving the iniquity and transgression (of the nation) … Pardon the iniquity of this people I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy… Then God said, ‘I have pardoned according to your word’.” (Numbers 14:17-20)
  3. Pray for Rain – Father, we pray as we unite together to pray the first two prayers, that You will give us the rain because of Your abundant mercies: “The Lord sends the rain on the just and the unjust.” (Matthew 5:45)
