In early 1993 as part of my (Ben F. Gray) regional leadership responsibility for prayer and spiritual warfare in the AD 2000 Movement, I founded what became the Australian Prayer Network (APN). Since then the APN has grown into what is believed to be the largest prayer network in Australia.
During its many years of effective ministry, both in Australia and nations of the 10/40 Window, and other key nations, the APN has been at the forefront in leading strategic prayer and transformation assignments.
The APN is relationally linked internationally to numerous national and international networks of prayer across the globe. In Australia we have more than 6000 registered members representing churches of all Christian denominations, prayer groups and individual intercessors in every State and Territory of the nation. We believe the "hidden" membership, that is those who are members of the churches and prayer groups represented in our network, runs into tens of thousands more.
The aim of the APN is fourfold: -
The APN's National Coordinator, Mr. Brian Pickering runs the network together with his wife Robyn, a team of Regional Coordinators across Australia and a national leadership team. As the Founder, I am the Apostolic Oversight for the movement and function on the national leadership team alongside Brian.
The APN regularly sends out newsletters via email to inform praying people around Australia and across the world of current strategic prayer needs. For further information or to join the APN visit ausprayernet.org.au.
