Friday prayers...

Please pray for:

  • Australian primary school children told not to choose songs mentioning God or Jesus for the end of year concert lest they offend non-Christians;
  • Malalai Joya, activist and critic of the current Afghan regime currently visiting Australia to campaign about the appalling treatment of women there;
  • Mrs Asia Bibi, Pakistani Christian condemned to death for blasphemy mentioned last week, but for whom the Pope has now appealed on behalf;
  • victims of the massacres of Catholics in Iraq, and those subject to continuing threats there - a requiem will be held at the Vatican on November 25;
  • Christian Pastor Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, death to death in Iran for apostasy from Islam.
And for those who don't see Islam as a significant lobby group as yet in Australia, read about the Islamic group planning to run candidates in the NSW election next year...
