To the Honourable the Speaker and the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully shows that:

Whatever our ideology, in the sight of God, we as a nation are politically, economically and spiritually sick and in need of healing.

We, the undersigned, are Christians, and as such recognise the Bible as the word of God, and in 2 Chronicles 7. 1 4 we are told 'If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land. '

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the members in the House assembled will:

Designate a Sunday of your choosing as a ' National day of prayer for the healing of our nation' and have the day and date of this event published in the daily Press.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Mr Jull.

Petition received.
