National Day of Prayer for Defence – 2024

National Day of Prayer for Defence - 2024

By MCF_Admin


All who have a heart to pray for Defence are welcome to join in praying together. Groups will be meeting all across Australia either on the day or generally in the week preceding. There have been 20-30 groups across Australia, and the world, meet in the past. Please get involved and uplift the Australian Defence Force to God. All welcome and you don’t need to be in Defence to host a gathering. It can be in a Small Group, at a Defence Base, in a local Church, local Bible Study group or by getting a few friends together to pray for these important issues.

You are welcome to organise a time of prayer.

To register your event time and location, or for if you have questions please email: [email protected] (Churches, schools and Bible Study groups are also welcome to host an event.)

Suggested time: Saturday 15th June, 2024 has been nominated as the date for this event, but you are welcome to host an event at any time that suits your Base, school or Church situation, preferably before the end of June 2024.
