Prayer Drive

The Northern Victoria Division organised a Prayer Drive today. Their advertisement read, " Support rural Victoria with a country drive, meet with other Christians to pray for rain and families affected by drought, spend some money in a rural town and support the local economy by buying coffee and food along the way." So we did.

We visited Marong, Charlton, Donald, and St. Arnaud. A prayer CD was provided to focus on the Lord on the drive and in each location, we met for prayer, received a brochure for a prayer plan, and walked the streets in prayer. Since we came from Melbourne, we actually drove over 600 kilometers in the process. Many of the people we spoke with were grateful for the support.

This was a blessed idea that drove home our hope in prayer and confidence in God.

Mark 9:1 (MSG)
1 Then he drove it home by saying, "This isn't pie in the sky by and by. Some of you who are standing here are going to see it happen, see the kingdom of God arrive in full force."

Prayer is important, something we definately don't do enough of. Great idea Northern Vic Div.

We live in rural Australia, thankfully we're not farmers, and my income does not rely on weather. They're doing it tough all the support you can give would be greatly appreciated by them.

Great idea. I think we can go one step further and assign a country town to a city corps. The soldiers of the city corps could go to that town and do their weekly shopping, fill the car with petrol and have lunch there. Us city folk haven't shared the pain enough of our country brothers and sisters during this drought.
