National Day of Prayer for Defence – 2023

National Day of Prayer for Defence - 2023

By MCF_Admin


You are welcome to organise a time of prayer.

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, 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 or by getting a few friends together to pray for these important issues.


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

Suggested time: 24th June, 2023 has been nominated as the date for this event, but you are welcome to host an event before this time that suits your Base or Church situation.
