Australia / 02 July 2020

As Australia lifts restrictions, pray for OMF Australia to have wisdom in knowing where to mobilise, as well as how and when to reconnect with different organisations and people. Pray for connections that were put on hold for the past few months. Pray that we will know how much to continue online as things start to open up again.

Australia / 22 May 2020

Pray for our missionary sending churches to continue supporting OMF missionaries in prayer and other needs, that they will “not [cease] to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work.” (Colossians 1:9-10).

Australia / 19 May 2020

Pray for God to raise up new workers from Australia to take the good news of Jesus to East Asia. Borders won’t be closed forever. Are we in a position to send new workers when they open? Pray that God will continue to speak to quiet hearts and for people to enquire through OMF to go to East Asia. “Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2).

Australia / 16 May 2020

Several long-term missionary candidates from Australia are planning for the field in the coming months. Support raising, though, is difficult at the moment with self-isolation and departure is further complicated by the inability to run in-person Orientation Courses for new workers. Pray for full support, travel and training for these candidates trying to go.
