Australian Christians pray for rain
Comment Email Print
 Leaders of all the main churches in Australia have called for a national day of prayer for rain this Sunday. Many parts of the country have been stricken by a severe drought. The proposal for a National Day of Prayer was made at a national meeting of Christian leaders. Speaking on behalf of the Australian bishops, Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson told the Sidney Morning Herald: "We should remember the many people on farms and in small businesses who are suffering, often in a deeply personal way." "Local churches are already providing practical and personal support, and will continue to do their utmost," he said. Anglican Archbishop Phillip Aspinall said: "We invite all Australians to express their solidarity with those who are suffering by taking a few moments to pray or to join a local worship service where prayers will be offered." The church leaders also called for prayer for "commitment to responsibly care for all our natural resources".
