Prayer for Families ~ January

Thank God for families. They are the bedrock of both society and of the church. Matrimony and family are God’s design, and as divine institutions there are no substitutes. Fundamentally, our global cultures and societies need a moral counter-revolution. Families have never been as fragmented as they are today, and our modern culture continues to wear away at the core unit of society. People are treated as commodities through media eg parents are encouraged to show their love for their children by buying gifts for them; the image of 'father' has denigrated and their role reduced to financial provider; [...]

Prayer for marriage ~ December

For some sport has become a god to which much has been sacrificed - time, money, integrity, family to name but a few. Ball tampering in cricket, match fixing, performance enhancing drugs, unfaithfulness in marriage, fornication have all shown up in sport. Yet also there have been acts of kindness and compassion.

Prayer for marriage ~ November

The concentration of media ownership in Australia is one of the highest in the world and its power and influence can be used for either good or evil. The entertainment industry can be used to model vices such as materialism, promiscuity, substance abuse, and violence, but also can be used to model that which is good and wholesome. Interactive entertainment (computer games & virtual worlds) allows users to become part of that world and has the potential to effect the way in which consumers relate to the real world. Lord, on behalf of these groups, we ask your forgiveness [...]

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—
I Corinthians 13: 4-8
He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
Matthew 19: 4-5
