You can become involved and support the work of the National Office for Evangelisation by becoming a prayer partner. Prayer, as described by The Catechism of the Catholic Church, is a “vital necessity” (2744). By becoming a prayer partner, you would be combining your prayers with the prayers of other Australians, as well as the works of the NOE, to promote the evangelisation of our country. The Catechism describes intercessory prayer as “a prayer of petition that leads us to pray as Jesus did”, him being the “one intercessor with the Father on behalf of all” (2634). Intercession is close to the heart of Jesus, and in Matthew he gives us his promise that:
“If two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three meet in my name, I shall be there with them.” (Mt 18:19-20)
In addition to prayer, it can be edifying to share personal testimonies. This would be in sharing how you have come to know Jesus in your life, how your faith has been important to you, and the various struggles and triumphs that you have encountered. If you feel that you have a story that you would like to share, we would be delighted to hear from you, with selected ‘stories of faith’ being shared with others via this website.
