JESUS is the focus of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting (7 Feb 2016) and the 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting (10 Feb – 20 March 2016).
The 40 Daily Devotions will be based on 40 Stories – filmed testimonies by Indigenous Australians about how JESUS has transformed their lives, families and communities.

Let’s put first things first!
Let’s honour JESUS, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth … the head of the body, the church… that in all things He may have the pre-eminence (Rev 1:5 and Col 1:18 NKJV).
Let’s also honour the First Peoples of the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit, whose testimonies to JESUS are powerful! (Rev 19:10b) We believe their testimonies will speak life into the heart of this land.
- Change people’s lives as they are touched by JESUS‘ great love (1 Thes 1:4-6 NIV)
- Build understanding between all the people groups of Australia.
- Show what JESUS is like and give Him honour as “the desire of all nations” (Haggai 2:7 KJV)
Let’s join together and pray for JESUS’ great love and power to transform the heart of our nation – the people and the land.
Let’s declare over Australia, as well as Israel, “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9)
Why are we calling Australia to 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting?
We seek a revelation of JESUS for His transformation of our nation.
We invite the Holy Spirit to bring a revelation of JESUS to His church and our nation through the inspirational stories of Indigenous Christians.
We will invite all Christians to upload their testimony to who JESUS is to them.
The Story behind the 40 Stories.
We asked key leaders to recommend those carrying a powerful testimony to Jesus and travelled all over Australia filming stories of Jesus’ power to transform lives, families and communities. During the 40 Days these filmed Stories will be uploaded to You-tube.
We invite you to meet our Team at http://40stories.com.au/who-we-are/ This team has believed in this project enough to carry the initial costs of travelling across Australia to film 40 Stories and prepare 40 Daily Devotions for the 40 Days. They are carried the Spirit of Jesus into every aspect and the deep grace of Jesus on this project continues to make our work a great privilege.
