Australia Day Prayer 26.1.21
Welcome to the new year!
“Remember not the former things,
nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
2020 may have been a difficult year for you but God is purifying us so our light can shine. We have been privileged to host an Australia Day Prayer event by zoom on 26 January. It is a controversial day on our calendar with some celebrating and Aboriginal people reminded of colonisation and the pain that came with it. So, for Norman, as an Aboriginal, to host it is significant and we have done so a number of times over the years, the last 2 years in Canberra. This time was by zoom because of covid-19. The Lord has given him Genesis 26 about re-digging the wells as Genesis is the first book of the Bible and January is the first month of the year. So, we don’t want esek (disputes) or sitnah (hatred). We want rehoboth (open space) to live together in peace.
We believe we experienced a shift over our nation on Australia Day by the grace of God. We were blessed by prayers by video from the Hon. Senator Eric Abetz, the Hon. Senator Amanda Stoker and audio by Rev the Hon. Fred Nile MLC NSW Parliament. National Prayer leaders Brian Pickering, National Coordinator, Australian Prayer Network and Ps Warwick Marsh, National Coordinator, National Day of Prayer & Fasting & Canberra Declaration joined us live to pray.
A large number of enthusiastic pastors and intercessors prayed through the day. We had 2 beautiful worship segments, one led by Glen Sebasio of Tabernacle of David Canberra and one led by Tabernacle of David Cairns, the latter with original songs especially for Australia Day.
After the introductions by parliamentarians and national prayer leaders, we had a session where First Nations leaders from each state prayed for Australia. Ps Norman and Ps Barbara both shared stirring prophetic messages. Norman’s was focused on reconciliation – https://youtu.be/lJ62CuLsGLc and Barbara’s was on foundations, including our constitution – https://youtu.be/4xpdb9WTSQI.
We also had a session praying for the seven mountains of cultural influence/spheres – family, government, media, education, economy, religion and celebration/arts with different people appointed to pray for each mountain. Rev 11:15, NIV: “The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.'” Until then, we are called to be salt and light and a godly influence on our society. Mat 5:13-16 ESV
The last session was praying for Australia as a Nation of Refuge and a blessing to Israel & the Nations (Heb 13:1-2, Lev 19:34, Gen 12:3) with different ethnic groups leading prayer. Australia has a redemptive gift of being a nation of refuge.
We thank the Lord that Ps Irwin Ross and Glen Sebasio, leaders of the Tabernacle of David in Canberra were able to join us on zoom with their congregation and that Ps Ross and Bronwyn Poulton were able to join us on zoom with a group from the Healing Rooms in Nowra.
Barbara released a decree “I decree that the captives who are under the spell of the dragon and the spirit of communism and the leviathan spirit and rainbow serpent will be set free all over Australia and the Asia Pacific and I release the angels of the Lord to accomplish this. I decree all vestiges of the Bamboo Curtin come down and all walls and rulers protecting the enemies of God to crumble. I decree that the people of Australia and Asia Pacific will achieve their God-given destiny and redemptive purpose.”

I (Barbara) went out on a limb on 26.11.20 and released what the Lord put on my heart about the deception that Trump would serve a second consecutive term. WhatsApp groups were furiously reposting what they received from well-known prophets and prayer leaders from the USA and internationally. They were also reposting with gusto and passion about conspiracy theories from alternative media outlets.
The Lord was on my case that this was wrong and that even a lying spirit had been put in the mouth of the prophets. I kept praying, reluctant to release it because who was I and I didn’t want to touch the Lord’s anointed. However, the Lord kept disturbing my sleep and warned me of my and Norman’s responsibility as the leader of prayer networks. Ezekiel was warned that blood would be on his hands if he didn’t warn when called to. (Ezekiel 3:18). So I released 2 messages and Norman also released one. They are below:
We are meant to use our discernment re prophecies and re media reports etc. Please ponder these scriptures and check out the messages below. We need to be careful not to add to deception by spreading it.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Mat 24:4-13. V4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with their own lusts.
1 Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?Lying spirit in the mouth of the prophets? Ps Barbara Miller shares 26.11.20 – https://youtu.be/WzOC7Nrd1bA
