Warwick Marsh, coordinator for Australia's National Day of Prayer & Fasting said, "David said in Psalm 108:2, 'I will wake the dawn with my song.' So, during this time of prayer we want to focus on giving great praise to God. We also want to pray for revival and transformation, that God will bring healing to our land as it says in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Let us all pray for a great harvest of souls for the Lord Jesus Christ."
Marsh continued, "In declaring Jesus Christ as Lord at this worldwide Sunrise Prayer Relay we are circling the globe with prayer, praise and worship and surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ for the glory of God. Psalms 113:3 says, 'From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.' Use the prayer resources on the website and social media and register your location at: www.sunriseprayerrelay.org. Our prayer is that with your help, this worldwide Prayer and Praise Relay will go viral."
Pat Steele, a prayer and worship leader in Wollongong Australia, said, "We encourage you to pray the Lord's Prayer together aloud as the sun rises and make a declaration that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life, your family, your region and your nation. At your location we encourage you to include praise and worship, prayers, and scripture readings. We suggest 30 minutes, but you can pray for longer. You could even take communion, shine a torch, or light a candle. What you do for your sunrise celebration is up to you."
