The following is an email I received from a Christian action
group called Salt Shakers which includes news concerning the
devastating Queensland flood crisis and a list of prayer requests
for the people of Queensland. I urge all who read this to agree
with us in prayer for the people of Queensland.
Note: some of the information in this email has been
Before reading the email I want to draw your attention to a
prophetic word I received from the Lord in 1995 which I posted in
February 2009, warning of what we are seeing today.
In October 1995, the Lord spoke to
me of a time when Australia will see natural disasters of severity
and frequency unlike any it has seen before. That time has
For the country of
Declares the Lord;
Rain, floods, hail, cyclones,
wind, storms, drought, heat waves, earthquakes, fires and so many
deluges that none would not have heard of the damage caused. Many
states and cities will see devastation. Many lives will be
Prepare! Be ready, in season
and out of season! Spring, summer, autumn and winter. For the next
few decades will the danger increase but as the danger increases,
My grace and blessings will also.
(Prophetic Message for
Australia - Oct, 1995).
The Lord revealed to me that one of
the reasons why this will happen is because the people of this
nation will not turn to, rely on and obey Him. But if Australians
would turn to the Lord, walk with Him and offer prayer for this
nation, many of the disasters prophesied for this country will
either not occur or will not be as volatile as prophesied. The Lord
Himself will intervene to stop them. The Lord is not responsible
for any of these disasters and has not sent any of them as a
judgment but they have come because of the sins of the people of
this nation. The Lord is giving this message as a
warning so that the people of Australia will repent of their sins
and be spared from any disasters to come.
"Then the Lord appeared
to Solomon by night, and said to him: "I have heard your prayer,
and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. When
I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to
devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if My people
who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek
my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes
will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place" (2
Chron 7:12-15 NKJV).

Rain and Floods in Queensland - Please Pray
[Posted on our website: permanent link - Rain and floods in
The continuing floods in South East Queensland have caused
devastation for many people with loss of property, livestock and
lives. With the flash flood in Toowoomba (Queensland) yesterday
causing the deaths of people, and with many people missing, this is
indeed a tragic event. As well as personal property, the
infrastructure of the region and the economy of the region are also
severely affected. Many groups around Australia are calling on
Christians to pray, to fast and to repent. Two of these...
* Catch the Fire Ministries, led by Ps Danny Nalliah, is calling
on Christians in Victoria "to gather at the parliament steps in
Melbourne on Wednesday the 12th of January 2011 (tomorrow) from 12
to 1pm to pray for the people of QLD and stand in the gap for our
nation in this hour of crisis. We need to ask God to
forgive us and save our land from any further disaster."
* Transforming Sydney is calling for people to pray and fast for
three days. They say "Transforming Sydney we are calling everyone
to seek God, start praying and cry out to the Lord for help.
Millions around the world are praying. We need the church to be
united, the Lord is knocking on our door asking us to love each
other and love Him more. We can do that by repenting and ask His
forgiveness. . ."
