National Day of Prayer and Fasting

The National Day of Prayer & Fasting will be held all over Australia on Saturday 27 May 2023.
Simultaneous prayer events will be held all around Australia between 10am - 4pm.


During a meeting of Christian leaders at Parliament House, Canberra for the National Prayer Breakfast on 28th February 2011, a unanimous decision was made to proceed with a National Day of Prayer and Fasting for marriage and family to be held on Sunday, 24th July 2011. It is significant that the 24th of July was first proposed by Aboriginal Christian leader Pastor Norman Miller from Cairns.

Following this day, and after much prayer and consultation across the wider body of Christ, it was decided to adopt a 5-year Prayer Plan and place the National Day of Prayer & Fasting on the Sunday before Lent each year starting in 2012.

The National Day of Prayer and Fasting has continued every year with Christians uniting across Australia to pray to God for our Nation.

We welcome you to be part of the NDOPF journey.
