Day of Prayer and Fasting 2019

Day of prayer and fasting 2019 - 18th June 2019

Coming before our heavenly father in prayer is an important part of the Christian faith, and at OCA we seek to reflect that in our organisation. We know that all we do is only possible through our God, who has blessed us greatly with the opportunity and ability to come alongside Bible Colleges throughout the wold to support them in their mission.

That’s why we encourage our friends to join us in prayer for our organisation, the individuals that are connected to it, and the work that we and our partners do.
We look forward to joining with you across the nation to uphold the OCA Ministry.


Option 1 - 
JOIN THE TELECONFERENCE TO PRAY

At the three meal times on Tuesday 18th June there will be a teleconference that you can dial into.
This will be facilitated by Stuart Brooking. Whether there are a few people or a lot, you can dial in and take part. Just listen or say your own prayer when the opportunity is given.
Dial from anywhere in Australia: 02 8015 2088 or 08 7150 1149 then enter the code 922 787 7748 to be connected.
Teleconference times (AEST) – 7am, 12.30pm, 7pm (each will last about 30 minutes).
Fasting for one or more meals will open up more time to pray in your day.


OPTION 2 - 
ENCOURAGE YOUR CHURCH OR FRIENDS

You may like to join with a few OCA supporters during breakfast, lunch or dinner time and instead of eating, you could pray for the ministry.
To encourage your church you can ask OCA for more resources such as videos or PowerPoint slides to share.


OPTION 3 - 
FAMILY OR PRIVATE PRAYER

Please put in your diary now a time when you can especially focus on OCA’s partner Bible colleges and our Australian operations.
It doesn’t have to be Tuesday 18th, but on that day there will be people around Australia, and indeed in our partner colleges, praying for the work.
