Prayer is the most valuable way you can connect with God’s work through Bush Church Aid.
Australia is a land of huge distances and diverse cultures and peoples. BCA’s vision to reach Australians for Christ may be Goliath-sized, but God is sovereign and powerful.
BCA needs your prayers. Please join us in asking God to work his power throughout Australia:

Bush Church Aid now have a prayer feed on PrayerMate, a mobile application (app). PrayerMate is designed to help you organise your prayer life. It allows you to add prayer points about your church, community, family and personal walk with God. You can also subscribe to receive prayer points from charities and mission organisations.
You can find us in the app under the World Mission & Bible Translation category or visit praynow4.org/bushchurchaid to learn how to download the app.
Lord our God, help us to remember those who live in isolated and remote parts of our land.
We ask you to strengthen and encourage all whose ministries are supported by The Bush Church Aid Society. Refresh them in times of discouragement and loneliness and call others to stand with them in the task of making Christ known.
Grant that, through the ministry of the Word and Sacraments, through caring service and by support for young people, the message of your redeeming love may be proclaimed and accepted by the people of our land. We ask these things through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Almighty and gracious God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We praise you for planting your fruitful word in this land over many generations, through many different ministries, and we rejoice that many Australians have found new life through faith in Jesus.
Today we especially thank you for your faithfulness in sustaining the work of the Bush Church Aid Society over the past one hundred years.
We grieve that we have not always shown your love and truth in our common life. We recognise the injustices done to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and ask that you would help us walk together as one, reconciled through Christ.
Please continue to pour out your Spirit on your church, so that we might reach Australia for Christ. Raise up many labourers and empower us to be your witnesses, so that this nation would worship its true Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,
In whose name we pray, Amen
