Children’s Prayer Network

The vision of the Children’s Prayer Network is to mobilise and network praying Christian children; to support and encourage the nurturing, discipling, training and equipping of these children, to enable them to take their place in God’s family as part of the army He is raising up to reach this generation.

The Beginnings
In 1993 “Lighthouse” began at St. Paul’s, Wahroonga in Sydney – an after school group which trained children to use puppets, drama and dance as an outreach and evangelism tool. In 1995 Lighthouse became a children’s prayer group and in May of that year three of its members travelled to Seoul, Korea to attend the Global Consultation on World Evangelisation as praying delegates, along with 35 other children from eight different countries. This was possibly the first time in history that children were a part of a world conference of such significance.

Jane Mackie, then leader of Lighthouse, was invited to lead the team working with those children in Korea. It was as a result of that life-changing experience that Jane accepted the invitation from the Australian AD2000 Movement to set up and co-ordinate a Children’s Prayer Network in Australia. The Network was officially launched in July 1995 at Merroo Christian Centre at the National AD2000 Conference.

The Journey
Since 1995 representatives of the Children’s Prayer Network have travelled to many countries, and all over Australia, sharing the vision in churches, schools, at regional meetings, and world conferences. Thousands of children worldwide have heard the message that children can pray and children can minister; that they don’t have to wait until they are grown up to have a meaningful relationship with the Lord, and that He wants them to use the gifts He has given them to pray, worship and serve Him.

The Network children now run their own weekly prayer groups, as well as rallies, workshops, prayer and worship events and conferences, and the original prayer group is now in its 9th year. The Network also offers leadership training, largely conducted by teenage leaders.

Regular prayer, worship and training events are held both at Merroo Christian Centre, Kurrajong, an hour west of Sydney, and at St. Andrews House of Prayer, Turramurra, Sydney
