Prayer Calendar

Download the  Prayer Calendar July 24   (Prayer Calendar Jun 24)   Bless you and thank you for praying for MCF! The prayer calendar is set out so that you can pray once a week, in the week commencing the date listed. Some points relate to all those in Defence, others more specifically to members of MCF, and some relating to other Christian organisations who also minister and witness to Defence personnel. Our unity with these other organisations is very important. We are all part of Christ’s body and each serve a different function to His glory. It is wonderful to be able to bless these organisations with prayer and practical support. Thank you for praying for and with MCF and we hope this prayer calendar assists you to pray for Defence related issues. The calendar may include both international and national prayer concerns and those of MCF Groups in Australia and other nations, and other Christian Military Ministries.
