A VISION CHRISTIAN RADIO MEDIA RELEASE
22 June 2016
Nationwide prayer for Australia via Radio in final election week
The outcome of the 2016 Federal election will determine the direction Australia takes with a number of significant issues. Vision Christian Radio has been working hard to help people cast their vote carefully and prayerfully. Vision's 20 twenty program in particular has focussed on bringing perspective and insight into party policies on front facing issues such as economics, health and education, as well as the big moral and ethical issues such as marriage, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and much more.
As well as helping inform listeners, Vision is also in a very unique position to bring Christians together in prayer through radio. "Radio is quite amazing in how it brings people together for a shared experience. We have the opportunity to use that power for something really significant - bringing thousands of Christians across the country together to pray for our nation" says Vision CEO, Phil Edwards. This is not the first time Vision has been a catalyst for bringing Christians together in prayer across the country.
On many occasions in the past special 'radio prayer meetings' have been conducted in response to floods, fires, droughts and cyclones. Prayer for Australia has been a major focus for Vision in 2016 with a key event being the broadcast of a prayer gathering in Alice Springs in May. In the final week prior to the election, Vision Christian Radio will pause its regular programming four times each day to give a Christian leader the opportunity to lead listeners across the country to pray for our nation, as follows;
|Monday 27 June
|Friday 1 July
Anyone with a heart for prayer and for Australia is invited to join in simply by tuning to a Vision Christian Radio station, or by listening online at www.vision.org.au Topics for each time of prayer are attached to this release.
