PM joins Christians to celebrate anniversary of 400-year-old Bible

He addressed the public at around 9:30am; they had gathered as early as 4am outside the car park to pray.

O’Neill spoke to the crowd, outlining the importance of the prayer day and the opportunity for the country as a whole to connect with God and Christian opportunities.

He also spoke of how the churches had been providing services in the rural areas for the past 40 years and his recent government’s commitment to them.

Be doers of the word, says GG

 Speaking this morning at the Prayer Breakfast, Sir Michael challenged Christians in the country, who have been given the freedom to practice their faith, to live up to Godly principles as described in the Bible.

“Recognising the significance of the Bible as God’s Word and the importance of prayer as we are doing today, it is of equal importance that we practice our faith as the Bible states in James 1:22-25.

“The Bible urges us to be doers of the word, and with faith we pray seeking God’s wisdom and guidance to guide us in all that we do,” the Governor-General said.
