Pray for other Leaders and Churches in your Area


What’s Happening? 

Australians, including our congregations, are facing a new confusing enemy, ISIS.

We are coming to grips with a world that Jesus and the prophets warned us about.

Mathew chapters 24,25 contain well known insights into end times.  

Churches are wisely responding in order to help guide our thinking: See this Item from Dapto Anglican Church

This particular urgent request for prayer has gone viral. It originally came from a text message within Crisis Response International who have responded, confirming that at least 5 Christian children in Iraq have been confirmed beheaded by ISIS.

Catch the Fire Ministries and RUAP may be a controversial group in Australia. However it’s worth reading this remarkable story from the scene where two policemen were knifed and a young Islamic man was shot in Melbourne this week.  

Please pray fervently for persecuted Christians, and also that we may be found Christlike in our response to the rising Islamic world.
