Christians around the country are being encouraged to participate in a National Day of Worship, Prayer, and Fasting today, for an end to the COVID pandemic.
Bishop Philip Huggins and the National Council of Churches in Australia have called for the event, encouraging the faithful to offer prayers for all we need, including an end to the virus.
The event has three main objectives.
The first is to worship the Lord and pray for our nation that we will come back to God in a true spirit of repentance.
The second is to pray for Australia, and particularly Victoria, for an end to the pandemic.
The third is to pray for America, Brazil, India, and the rest of the world, with close to 17 million coronavirus cases recorded worldwide.
More information and resources for the event can be found on the NCCA website.
