Faith in action

It is with great excitement that we write to you today to invite you to join Christians from all across the church in Australia to PRAY the Lord's Prayer daily in the lead up to Easter. We believe that real change takes place, when individual Christians in community submit their lives to Jesus’ Lordship and, empowered by his grace, begin to live in obedience to him. How better to learn Jesus’ ways than to pray as he himself taught us to?
This year - as we prepare our hearts for Easter & enter the season of Lent - we're inviting Christians from across the church to come together. Imagine what might happen in Oz if we are all praying the prayer that Jesus taught us at the same time? How might it transform all of our hearts? And maybe even our nation? So will you PRAY? www.lordsprayer.org.au
As a key part of it all, our amazing friends at the Bible Society have generously partnered with us to deliver daily Bible readings and devotional material, straight to our email inboxes, so that we can meditate upon the word together. So will you READ?
We’ve also gathered some of Australia’s most respected Bible teachers, from all different church traditions, and will feature a weekly video of them, as they take us through the Lord’s Prayer line by line and share their understanding. So will you REFLECT? Check out who is involved!
Why is Common Grace doing this? Like many of you, we’ve seen how social justice can often become divorced from the Lord of justice and peace. Yet we believe that real change can take place, when individual Christians in community submit their lives to Jesus’ Lordship and, empowered by his grace, begin to live in obedience to him. We want our love of neighbour to overflow from our love of Jesus and what better way than to know what Jesus is on about, than by praying his prayer. Join us: www.lordsprayer.org.au
