National Day of Prayer in Brisbane in 2019
Our nation needs prayer! So please join us in united corporate prayer on March 2nd 2019.
Join us on Saturday 2 March 2019, between 10am and 4pm as we unite as Christians from all denominations across the Brisbane Region to pray to God for our nation, for a national awakening, and for millions to find Jesus Christ. You are welcome to come for some or all of day, though we’d love to see you in both the morning and afternoon.
At the Brisbane National Day of Prayer and Fasting Event there will be times of worship interspersed with different styles of corporate prayer on a range of topics in small and large groups. Our experience is that the time goes very fast, and that before we know it, it is 4pm. A sample of what we are likely to be praying for includes:
- Salvation- for millions to find Jesus Christ our Saviour,
- Transformation and revival of our nation,
- Our government and for godly laws,
- Life issues, social issues, and reformation of our culture,
- Rain and prayer for those doing it tough with droughts and fires.
This year will be our ninth annual National Day of Prayer & Fasting Event to be held in Brisbane for Christians of all denominations. The 2019 prayer event will be held at Riverlife Church, Jennifer St, Seventeen Miles Rocks on Brisbane’s Southside (UBD Refidex pg 198 C4).
As a little bit of history, we had our first 6 annual events at the Parliamentary Annexe in the Brisbane CBD, then as we outgrew the room, we moved to Brisbane City Hall in 2017, and then to find better parking we moved to Sommerville House in South Brisbane though we discovered there was still not enough parking – so this year we are actually having our day of prayer at a church with plenty of parking on Brisbane’s Southside.
We are thankful that Riverlife Church have welcomed us to come and pray at their venue. To book please go to their website at https://riverlife.brushfire.com/events/448948 . There is a $10 booking fee, which will go towards covering the costs for the event and the advertising and running of the National Day of Prayer at the national level.

How do I get there by car?
If you know how to get to the Brisbane City Council Rocks Riverside Park then you should be able to find your way there, as the church is in a neighbouring street.
Western Fwy/Centenary Mwy Route from Northside: Access the Western Fwy via (a) Inner City bypass and then Legacy Way tunnel (b) Milton Rd then Mt Cootha Rd Roundabout (c ) backroute that comes out on Frederick St near Toowong Cemetery (d) Moggill Rd.
Then for those coming from the Northside along Centenary Mwy, when on the Western Mwy/Centenary Mwy take your first exit after crossing the Brisbane River, onto Sinnamon Rd where the Jindalee DFO and Homemaker Centre is located. Sinnamon Rd will have a name change to Goggs Rd and then come to a T-intesection roundabout.
Turn left onto Seventeen Miles Rock Rd (ie go east) continue on past Sinnamon Village, at the roundabout take your second right onto Jennifer St (1st right should have signs to Rocks Riverside Park). Look out for the church and find a carpark.
Centenary Mwy Route from Southside: For those coming from the southside along the Centenary Mwy take the Sinnamon Rd/ Seventeen Miles Rocks Rd exist near the Jindalee golf course/DFO/Homemakers Centre. (If you drive over the Brisbane River, you missed the exit.) Turn Right onto onto Seventeen Miles Rock Rd (ie go east) continue on past Sinnamon Village, at the roundabout take your second right onto Jennifer St (1st right should have signs to Rocks Riverside Park). Look out for the church and find a carpark.
Getting to the Centenary Mwy on the southside: The Centenary Mwy can be accessed from Ipswich Rd/Mwy where is crosses in the suburb of Darra.
The Ipswich Mwy can also be accessed via (a) the Storey Bridge if coming from the Northside (b) the Gateway Mwy (Mt Gravatt Capalaba Rd exit ) and (c) Pacific Mwy (Kessels Rd exit) if the signs to Ipswich direction are followed. Once you have merged onto the Ipswich Mwy, the Centenary Mwy exit should have signposts towards the suburbs of Mt Ommaney/Jindalee/Sinnamon Park; (and signs towards Forest Lake- but don’t go that direction on the Centenary Mwy). Then take the Sinnamon Rd/ Seventeen Miles Rocks Rd exit near the Jindalee Golf course/DFO/Homemakers Centre (if you go across the Brisbane River you have gone too far).
