Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
A special panel was set up by the Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in November to look at existing legislation on religious freedom and see if any new law is required to enshrine religious freedoms. The panel is due to report on 31 March. Pray that they will have wisdom and that the issues of freedom of religion and freedom of conscience will remain high on the public agenda in Australia. This move came soon after a plebiscite vote in favour of same-sex marriage, which will probably have been made law in Australia by the time you are reading this. There were calls for religious exemptions to be built into the same-sex marriage law but the new panel and the possible new law are presented as an alternative solution.
