Please entrust to prayer a current challenge that pastors and local churches in New South Wales are currently facing. Namely, a requirement for only vaccinated people to return next month (View article: ‘Stand up and say no’: Churches fight government over vaccine mandate'). Regardless of your position on the current vaccines, you could imagine that for many pastors and churches, excluding people from public worship on the basis of a medical choice is unimaginable.
Pray that pastors and churches would have wisdom at this current time and that the NSW state government would explore options for churches to open safely with everyone in attendance.
When: Thursday, 23rd September or the morning of Friday, 24th September
