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. In themselves sport and physical recreation are good things when used to exercise bodies and minds, competing or supporting and encouraging those who do. Sports and recreational activities often bring people together,letting them bond in a non-threatening way, and opening incredible doors to the Gospel. Christian [...]

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 [...]

Prayer for marriage ~ October

The primary meaning of science, as given by Webster, is: "Knowledge of principles and causes: ascertained truths or facts." Galileo Galilei is quoted as saying: "The glory and greatness of Almighty God are marvellously discerned in all his works and divinely read in the open book of heaven. For let no one believe that reading the lofty concepts written in that book leads to nothing further than the mere seeing of the splendour of the sun and the stars and their rising and setting, which is as far as the eyes of brutes and of the vulgar can penetrate” [...]

Prayer for marriage ~ September

The charity and not for profit sector has its own unique issues. These include raising funds, which in turn affects the ability to hire/retain/train staff and deliver services; the employment of voluteer staff and the need to employ suitably qualified staff, yet not always being in a position to offer salary packages equivalent to those on offer in the corporate field. The challenge of working with volunteers. The challenge of communicating in a foreign language, personal safety, dealing with different cultural norms and hygiene issues if working in some countries overseas. These issues and many others have the [...]

Prayer for marriage ~ August

The influence of postmodern thought has left its mark on twenty-first century education, introducing concepts such as pluralism, “tolerance,” and the rejection of absolute truth. Today’s curriculae are replete with materials that accept – and, in some cases, even condone – immoral activities and lifestyles, which includes sex outside of marriage and marriage between any two people and seek to embed gender theory into school curriculum. Truth and freedom of speech have been compromised in some universities. Christian schools are being challenged when they hold to biblical truths. Meanwhile, revisionist teachings about our country’s founding remove any reference to [...]

“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
