First Sunday of Lent – Day of Prayer and Fasting for Refugees and Asylum Seekers
On Sunday 5 March leaders of churches throughout Australia invite all people to join in prayer for refugees and asylum seekers. Not only are we invited to pray, but also to fast – to stand before God, empty, placing our trust in God, ready to receive God’s blessings. In fasting we join in one simple way with those who have fled their homes and seek safety for themselves and their families. The National Council of Churches Australia has put together resources to assist with reflection, prayer, reading and study. These documents represent a collection of some of the resources that have been gathered from Churches.
