Hey There, Welcome!

Hi Friends!

Welcome to NSW/ACT Division’s 40 days of prayer! We are so excited to journey through this time of prayer together. Thank you for joining us!

As God’s people, prayer is a way of life and now more than ever is the time to be praying! We are CONVINCED that prayer changes lives. We also believe God is stirring something in his people and we want to wait on him and listen to what he was to say. So, NSW/ACT Division is uniting together for 40 days of prayer. That is, praying 24 hours a day for 40 days. During the 40 days we will be joining with the Territorial 21 days of prayer - 'Pray it forward'While we are apart, we can unite in prayer. 

So whether you love praying and it is already part of your everyday routine or whether prayer kind of bores you or terrifies you, this is the place for you. You are welcome here. God meets us just where we are and we know he hears our prayers (He tells us over and over again in the Bible!).

We do want to take a moment and say thank you in advance for the time you will dedicate to pray, and we honour you for giving up your time to pray!

God we surrender these 40 days to you and ask that you would have your way!

Love the 40 Days of Prayer Team.


Hours Spent in Prayer So Far...

1176 hours!!!!

So how will this work?

The division is comprised of multiple areas with Area Officers. So, each area is being asked to cover a five-day block of prayer. Each day is broken up into 24 one-hour time slots and your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to fill up every prayer time slot in your allocated days as an area. Hopefully by the end of 40 days every hour will have been filled with someone from around our division praying! Can you imagine what 960 hours of consistent prayer could do!?

To sign up for a prayer shift head to the 'Prayer Roster' Tab on this website. If you know of someone who would be keen to join us but does not have access to the internet, why not offer to put their name down at a time that suits them? And print off some resources for them available to download under the 'More Resources' Tab? 

We encourage everyone regardless of the internet and availability to sign up to pray! We know God hears all prayers no matter where, when or whether we have signed up to a prayer shift or not!

Our Prayer for YOU!

Our prayer is that as you set aside time to pray and meet with God, drawing near to Him that He would draw near to you.  That He would give you fresh revelations of his love for you and fresh anointing of His Holy Spirit.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you – person reading this website, with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:14-21)
