For people of faith, there are no real limits on prayer.
Meeting in person may be restricted, but we can still pray – alone, or with family, or in groups over the phone or internet – and bring our hearts and our requests to God.
To that end, a number of organisations are hosting online prayer events that you’re invited to join.
Sydney Prayer Breakfast Featuring John Anderson
The annual Sydney Prayer Breakfast, which usually attracts up to 1000 people each May at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, is still going ahead this year—online.
The breakfast is scheduled as normal for 7am on Wednesday, May 27, and the special guest speaker this year will be John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister.
With the event now online, the organisers at City Bible Forum are hoping for an even larger gathering than usual: “Our breakfast will have all the components you would expect, with prayers, music and a report from the medical frontline,” said an event organiser.
The event is free, but participants are asked to pre-register online at the Sydney Prayer Breakfast website. Details about the web stream will then be emailed in time for the event.
Scripture Union’s Call To Prayer Event
On Saturday, May 2, at 10:30am, Scripture Union is hosting a cross-denominational prayer gathering, as part of their mission to equip people in their walk with God.
In their promotional video, Scripture Union workers share the message that “God often works for his glory in the darkest of times – so maybe this isn’t just a season to get through, but to seek God, and to be united as a body of Christ in Australia, to rediscover the secure hope that we have in Jesus that cannot be touched by sickeness, by death, disease.”
All Australians are invited to join, and will have a chance to pray for the following:
- For those who are suffering, fearful, lonely, or sick
- For world leaders who are making very difficult decisions
- For Australian communities, children, young people, and families as they struggle under new pressures
- For believers, that they would develop a resilient faith for hard times
