Prayer Issues for the "River of Life"

 Murray Darling Thanksgiving Tour

25 - 28 March 2012

(2nd draft 21 March 2012)


The Murray and the Darling in particular has been in various states of flooding for the last 3 and half years. The Hume Weir in October 2008 was sitting on approx 30%. Currently it is sitting on 86.2% and Filling. The Dartmouth which was approx 25% in October 2008 is currently sitting on 81.3% and filling.  These are the two main storage facilities for the Murray and usually this is there low season. The Blowering and the Burrinjuck Dams which feed the Murrumbidgee are both sitting on 97% and 94% respectively.

Thankfully through prayer Wagga Wagga  was spared the worst during the recent flooding of the Murrumbidgee.  The five other biggest dams in NSW are between 98% and 123%. Warragamba dam achieved 105%  with water over the spillway on the 2nd of March 2012. This most recent inflows have all happened since the National Day of Prayer and Fasting on 19 February 2012

Peter and Warwick believe the healing of the river system is Gods Answered prayer to the prayers of the saints in 2007 and 2008 including the National Solemn Assembly. They also believe that these floods are a sign to all Australians  of a massive out pouring of the Holy Spirit across all of Australia. Lake Eyre flooded for three years in a row 2009, 2010 and 2011 and Lake Eyre could well Flood again this year. The “River of Life” talked about in Ezekiel 47 is coming to this land in natural form but soon there will be a revival and reformation. First the natural then the spiritual.  Ps Des Kranz from Mildura said the Murray and the river system has never been better. Four years ago all the river experts were saying it was the death of the Murray Darling  river System. The rivers are alive with new life!!!!!!! We have a lot to be thankful for.

"River of Life" Thanksgiving Services   25 - 28 March 2012

Warwick Marsh and Ps Peter Walker are asking Christian Minsters, Church leaders, local dignitaries, members of parliament, state government representatives, and member of the public to join with them in special Thanksgiving prayer services along the river. They invite others to join them on the journey.

Each prayer service will be held for approx 20 - 30 minutes. During each prayer service local dignitaries and church leaders will be asked to bring a brief greeting and/or lead in prayer and/or give a bible reading. Warwick Marsh and Ps Peter Walker will do likewise and then lead in a short communion service with prayers of thanksgiving for the healing of the land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Ezekiel Chapter 47: 1-12 will then be read out as a prayer of blessing for the natural and spiritual river of God to fill this nation. All those present will be invited to pray and participate as much as possible. A love offering will be taken up to help defray expenses. It is our goal to create a  Film documentary of the many answered prayers from the current Thanksgiving Pilgrimage and combine it with our 2008 footage to show the miracle of answered prayer. To God be the Glory.
