World Prayer Today

What country’s name means “the unknown south land”?

February 21, 2018

Welcome to the “land down under.”

With 28% of its population born overseas and from non-western backgrounds, Australia is considered one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world . . . and most communicate in their heritage’s heart language.

A surprising fact about Australia—more than a half million Muslims live there, with 200,000 living in the Sydney area and 100,000 in Melbourne. These Arabic-speaking people now have the opportunity to watch Thru the Bible on our new Arabic satellite-TV broadcast.

Pray today that the spiritual interest that is prompting Muslims to turn to Jesus throughout the Middle East will spread to Australia’s Arabic-speaking populations. May God’s name be lifted up “down under.”

Tomorrow we travel east to the tropical paradise in Fiji.
