Church leaders are calling for Sabbath, 12 November, to be a special day of prayer for revival and reformation. Dr Ted Wilson, president of the world church, who will visit Australia from 6 to 27 November, plans to be in Melbourne for the event.

Dr Wilson has, since his appointment in July 2010, intentionally called the world church to revival and reformation. Essentially his theme has been that we live in urgent times and that we need a greater outpouring of the Spirit so that, with renewed clarity and focus, we can tell the world of the soon coming of our Lord and Saviour.

His call is for Adventists to seek the Lord earnestly so that we can be a people whom the Holy Spirit can powerfully use to witness to His transforming grace.

Pastor Chester Stanley, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia has appealed to the 500-plus congregations around the nation “to be found together on our knees during worship service on Sabbath morning, November 12.”

In a letter to local pastors and elders around the Australian Union Conference, Pastor Stanley suggested that churches build their worship services around the theme of revival and reformation on the day, with the sermon focusing on the topic and congregations joining together in small groups for prayer.

Dr Ted Wilson is travelling to Australia to attend the South Pacific Division executive committee meetings and will speak at Wahroonga Church in Sydney at 7:00pm, Wednesday 9 November; the Dallas Brooks Centre in East Melbourne, 9:30am Sabbath 12 November; the Gateway Baptist Church in Mackenzie, Brisbane at 10:00am, Sabbath 26 November; and Northpine Christian College in Dakabin, Brisbane at 3pm, Sabbath 26 November.
