QUICK DEVOTIONAL: Read the words in blue.
DELIGHT in declaring the Good News message: “Lord, I believe you are the Son of God who has come into the world for us.” (John 11:27)
DELIGHT in Jesus’ empathy, trustworthiness and power in all the challenges of your life!
He saw death as “another opportunity to see who I am, so you will learn to trust in Me.” (John 11:15) Jesus’ resurrection of his beloved friend Lazarus is a glorious turning point for these witnesses – and for us all because Jesus said, “anyone who clings to Me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever.” (John 11:25)
REFLECT on the proportion of your fellow Australians who do not yet have a personal relationship with God.
Jesus said “If you believe you will see God unveil His power…” (John 11:40)
- Do you believe in Christ’s unveiled power available to us in Australia in this generation?
- Do you believe Jesus’ power can be unveiled through you?
DELIGHT in the powerful truth that Your Father has positioned Australia as His messenger to the world! God has commissioned us to be messengers of reconciliation. Read 2 Corinthians 5:11-21.

- DELIGHT in your Father and declare your life message.
Father, like Jesus we gaze into heaven and pour upon You our thanksgiving. Almighty, Omnipotent and gracious God we adore You! In You we live and move and have our being. We are Your offspring, Father.
- Invite Jesus into your friends’ DESTINY.
Jesus, my Lord and Saviour, I continue to pray for my listed friends who have not received You and are facing eternal death. I also have on my heart many other family members, friends and colleagues. Lord, have mercy on their souls! Usher them into new life in You and to their DESTINY in the family of God. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
- Invite Jesus to transform the DESTINY of your region.
Father, the DESTINY of our nation hangs in the balance. I hear the cries of grief from those who will hesitate and miss their window of opportunity to respond to you as the Beloved. (Song of Songs 5:6) Send your Spirit to convict us of our need for repentance and sustained fervent intimacy with You. Raise and equip us as your Church to carry the gospel truth that Jesus has died – so that the people of our nation do not need to perish! All are invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb but so few enter! We cry out Lord for our land, environment, laws, our systems, our mindsets, our will to be resurrected to life in Jesus. (2 Chronicles 7:14). May Australia be given audience to speak words of life to the nations – words that are triumphant over death. (Acts 17:28)!
