Welcome to Brisbane Prays website, we are glad to meet you, and would like it even more if you could join us at one of our prayer meetings in Brisbane.
If you can’t personally attend one of our prayer opportunities we would encourage you to contribute to the prayer culture of Brisbane, so that Brisbane can be known as a city that prays together effectively and regularly, so that it can be said “Brisbane Prays” or tweeted #BrisbanePrays!
Why did we start Brisbane Prays?
As Christians from a wide variety of churches, ethnic backgrounds and languages have said to us that they “enjoyed praying together at Parliament House for Queensland” on the National Day of Prayer & Fasting and also said that “That we should do this more often”, and as we were already of that opinion, we have decided to help facilitate this journey.
We would like to contribute to the culture of Brisbane…
We hope that you will join us on the journey of prayer for Brisbane….
We wish to thank all of those who have been faithfully praying and interceding for the city and nation for so many years, and invite you to walk along side us as we continue the journey together. We hope to add and build upon what is already happening in our city of Brisbane. Don’t stop praying!
We also wish to thank all those in advance who will lead in different ways, contribute, volunteer, organize, participate; and most of all join us as we minister to our God in prayer and worship.
This website is brought to you by the same people that have organized the Queensland or Brisbane National Day of Prayer & Fasting event for the since 2011 starting at the Queensland Parliament House Brisbane City, then Brisbane City Hall in 2017, then Sommerville House in 2018, then River City Church in 2019, then King George Square in Feb 2020. In the past these events have attracted numerous language groups and denominations including protestant, evangelical, charismatic, pentecostal and catholic and everything in between, with most people coming from around the South East Queensland area.
Our team is partnership of a number of prayer initiatives, prayer movements and pray-ers, with representatives coming from different churches, denominations, and parts of Brisbane.
The team that have organized the National Day of Prayer Events in Brisbane at Parliament House, currently consists of Wesley Leake from the National Committee for the ‘National Day of Prayer & Fasting’, see also nationaldayofprayer.org.au/about/team/ and Sally. Wesley Leake also runs a ministry called Business Blessings businessblessings.com.au/. Sally came me on board to coordinate the monthly prayer meetings (contact her via email@example.com). (Marilyn and David Rowsome who were heavily involved before, have stepped back to retire from their previous involvement in the Canberra Declaration.) Various other leaders and volunteers over many years (past and present) who we appreciate very much (or who are the shy type …. that may not want their names published here) have also contributed and continue to do so!
Note that the “Canberra Declaration” were the instigators of the National Day of Prayer and Fasting in Australia. Thus you may have see some “cross pollination” of emails between the two if you have previously signed up at www.nationaldayofprayer.org.au or signed the Canberra Declaration or been to a previous event where you provided your contact details.
